      Do I have to say that I'm impressed about the progress? - I think I'm not.

      As a baker of "Just The Board" and the full thing I've got some questions:
      - Is there any progress on the Basic? (It still crashes when the wrong graphics mode or/and command is used)
      - Will there be any further updates for "early adopters" after V0.8c from 2018-05?
      - Will bakers of "Just The Board" also receive the software packages?
      - How much "late will the Spectrum Next be, compared to the estimated date:
      - it's late one year
      - it's late more than one year
      - it's late less than one year

      Thanks for the info.

      Thanks for keeping us updated. It is awesome to see how much you all care about this project, it makes the wait bearable. Still too excited for words though.

      Keey up the Good Work Guys!
      Can't Wait for this Little Baby to Land Down under :)
      Are there many Ozzies that have Ordered a Nexy? Maybe someone can answer this Q :)
      I have almost All the ZX Spectrum Range, from the Rubber Key 16k to the 128+2A, and this is to be the Jewel in the Crown :)

      If this ZX Spectrum Next journey was like a family trip to the seaside, we're definitely now at the "We can see the sea!" stage of the long car trip. Its been a long journey, with a few motorway congestions along the way, but we all know what a time we'll have when we get there.

      "Stay tuned for the next update in a couple of weeks"
      :( I was hoping for a birthday release (my birthday, that is). Oh well, I'll make it an early Christmas release then :)

      Looking forward to get my game hungry mittens on this thing! Thanks for the detailed updates, the nitpicking to ensure this device matches the original plans (yeah, I'm looking at you, other project!) and sticking to the objective, even without the great late Rick Dickinson. Thank you Phil Candy, you're doing a tremendous job!

      Thank you for the level of detail you are providing, makes us feel in some small way like we are on the journey with you. Also thank you for the attention to detail in design. This will only ever be done once so why settle for second best. Perfect. Cheers.

      Agreed, this level of exactness is great to read about making the end product even more special. It is not very often on KS that you get this much detail about the manufacturing process. You could almost write a book on that alone!

      And the detailed updates.

      Loving the attention to detail. That will really make the Next special
