C.H.I.P. or Treat?



What horror boots within the ancient zip disk labeled 'Occult Archives'?  That question burns inside the mind of Mr. Sharps, and when the NTC crew leaves the office early, he is no longer able to resist its call.  (special thanks to Pro8mm)

      @Gary Denney: A lighter version, that tracks which milestones have been hit on time--might be good, though, especially for somebody who might come through later, wanting to see how good their history is of hitting estimated shipping dates.
      Plus I'd not mind knowing what adding things in BackerKit means for when I should expect my things to turn up--I don't remember if BackerKit said, and I don't quite want to have to go poking around in there.

      @Brian: I'd say it is safe to assume that unless there is something else announced that the rewards will be shipping when they were estimated to. The only date that has passed so far has been the Alpha chips for the Kernel Hacker reward level. And those have shipped. The earliest production model shipping is slated for December 2015. And any pledge that includes anything other than just a C.H.I.P. isn't until May 2016.

      I can see asking for a shipping update if they were behind, but they aren't at this point. Creating a new product and bringing it to market it time consuming. Since they haven't missed any deadlines yet, at this point we just need to be patient. :)

      You know, a simple "shipping dates" section added to the bottom/top/middle of the page (And updated often!) would go a long way toward keeping happier customers.

      There's some brain dead people who backed this project. One would think that reading comprehension and attentiveness would go hand in hand with technology, but time and time again I've seen that's not the case. Seriously, read the campaign and stop shitting up the comments.

      Where does it say October? The Kernal Hacker Backers got theirs in September and the first wave of final C.H.I.P.'s should be in December 2015, EVERYTHING else is 2016.

      Cem - Actually this has been going quite well and we've been getting regular updates. I backed a 3d printer that was 9 months late and then went belly up before shipping the backers their printers, even though they had started shipping retail.

      Tatiana - what pledge level are you at that you think it would come before November? Read the delivery date of your pledge level - chances are its May of next year. Cem - as long as they deliver on time they can post whatever they want.....

      How could this be!?!? Yesterday, I found a huge stack of 5.25 floppies wrapped in a red ribbon and labeled "The Future". It was behind an old printer in a closet nobody had opened in years. I dusted off some old hardware and after much difficulty, managed to join the multi-part archive and get it to my desktop PC via a RS 232 null modem. When I opened the archive, I found that it was a single MPEG-1 video. I played it and...IT WAS THIS VIDEO.

      @George Sullivan and Frank, look guys it's not like they are behind on their estimated delivery dates. Wait until after those dates pass to ask _when_ is X going to arrive or to asking them to stop messing about in these update posts. There are realities that they can't address no matter how hard they work so I imagine there are bound to be periods of down time where they can make content to try to amuse us rather than keeping us in the dark.

      Frank if you look at the CHIP+HDMI pledge estimated delivery it states May 2016. My guess is you will get it about then.

      Too funny, a ZIP disk. I still have one of those drives. Amazingly it still works. Not good for much other than as an antique.
