Probably just a fluke in their system. Control similarly got my hopes up during the Great Cloud Famine of 2015. Still... I have to try... just in case.

This happened to me exactly. Not a great business model, to oversell your shipping order.
Same thing happened to me. Thought I was purchasing from the first shipment. Just contacted PC and they said I get one from the next order TBD. Pretty uncool tactic.

Call up and cancel your order.

Perfect Circuit shafted me on this one too - ordered the same day the pre-order went up, then nothing! Pretty bad!

Yup, same here. Got a quick refund upon emailed request, though. Still sux.

Yeah, sorry. It takes a few months to run a batch. The next batch will be shipping around the end of September or early October. The good news is that it is quite a bit larger than the first run, so there should be lots of them for everybody.

:party: so excited to finally be able to see what the heck i'm doing!

On pre-order with Clockface. Eagerly looking forward to the second wave so I can grab one of these. Thank you for working so hard, Daverj!

yes please use all of the PCB fabs in Taiwan and make as many as possible. I'll buy at least one.
My old crusty Zenith oscope next to my modular has a broken time knob and really bad triggering.

It is firmware upgradable. It has a jumper for internal or external 5 volt source. It has an expansion connector for possible future add-on modules.
I'd love an expansion with a hdmi/vga output to plug in a monitor with 1080p

would be nice for educational purposes and also for visuals in a performance.

While I totally agree with you, it's been frequently said that the hardware involved cannot provide video out in any way, shape, or form.

I've also been thinking of live visuals (and also in-my-home-make-me-happy visuals) and I think I'm gonna have to invest in some further hardware and/or software down the line to make that possible.

I look forward to the next batch coming through, though. It'll be really useful to see what the hell I'm actually doing.

The cheapest OWON oscilloscopes have the VGA out as a $6 option (yes, six bucks more!). So
just get the OWON (about $375), about $50 more than the O'Toole+.... but it's in stock and for real and
a _much_ better scope (can even run on a LiIon battery - $75 option, buy it anytime and slide it in.).

Does that help?

I got told 'no specific date but around a few weeks' on the 6th of this month, so anytime soon hopefully.

Pre ordered can't wait to get me hands on the little bastard

We're a few weeks behind schedule, but working hard to get them done. It's a huge batch, so there's going to be lots of them for everybody. Hoping to have them start shipping to dealers within another 2-3 weeks.
