      Weird day. I had a pile of "projects" lying around, grabbed some coffee and: the Adblocker works on one of my devices, but not two others, Flomio doesn't work at all with IOS-7, and no luck with the Stormfly.

      I started messing with Atom's Toys but the coffee wore off. We'll see what happens there. Perhaps crowd funding is not for me. Not that worried about it, but I was REALLY excited about some of these things. It's kind of like landing a date with the hottest girl around and finding out looks are all she has going for her.

      Doug,
      I have been using the last one I got and it works great. It might be good to ask how many of us are happy with the product - maybe on a survey if they let you do that?

      I wish you guys the best and will back you again if you crowd fund!

      The only issues I have had are with Ubuntu but there are work-arounds, so no worries.
      It is really great to be able to have a nice operating system like that on a USB. I see a good future for it.

      @andrew - I'm hoping the update will solve the problem of losing access to my account so I'm going to go ahead and do it. I need to use the guest account when it happens, which is a pain. To regain access you have to go to console and access login files with commands. I have heard that 13.04 is also problematic.

      I did receive my replacement StormFly key (basically, just the USB device), but after trying it out with the first computer, it didn't work either. Not sure if they just re-sent the old one (it DID have a different color tongue, though) or if I'm just unlucky. I'll probably just hang on to it until we find out if this company is ever coming back from the grave. It seems unlikely, but you never know. I wish them a speedy recovery...

      Never received anything (not even the defective unit) from my $90 investment. I reckon that KS should fund an insurance policy that pays out for failures.... or at the very least allow us to rate developers that miss the target (like an ebay score). I an certainly less likely to back this type of KS based on this (and others similar) failures I have experienced.

      If anyone, like me actually has a working stormfly have you tried to update the preinstalled distro to Ubuntu 13 at all? I am tempted to try but as a replacement seems unlikely I am cautious.

      Doug,

      When can I expect my 2 StormFlys? I got the initial pieces (whcih are not usable) and still waiting to hear from you to replace them. What is the current position on those replacements? Please let me know.

      Thanks.

      @Roman - If its rusting then you must of got it wet or have a serious damp problem!
      Since over 40% of backers have not been able to access a replacment for the 1st faulty one and Now Computing are not currently trading you wont be able to get a replacment.

      Did you send the 1st one back as required? If not then carefully bend the 2 or 4 securing metal pieces at the back of the unit down flat, push the internal part back from the USB connection at the front with something flat and non-metalic, carefully pull the unit out.
      Repeat on the 2nd unit and swapthe internals around.
      The metal case is the same and it will fit, bend the metal clips back up and you should be good.

      If you did send the 1st back then you can do the same with pretty much any cheap USB drive that is mounted in something plastic/rubber, the metal case is a pretty standard part. You can even pick a 2GB USB wrist strap up on eBay for a few $ and use the case from that.

      I live in the US and I have yet to hear anything about a replacement. I've contacted them twice now and I haven't heard anything. Is anyone getting a replacement?

    17. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Nial Pearce on October 23

      Please check the last update and the comments section for it for update.

      Basically the StormFly project is on hold till early next year due to simply running out of money after they were ripped off by the China based supplier.

      All your answers are in the last update and I have added some further info after I had a chat with the CEO.

      Hi Sue, I am in Germany and got my replacement weeks ago. I already sent back the old insert and had no problem at all with my StormFly. OK, I have only one and no apple to use with. All my devices where I can boot from USB works fine, most of them already with version 1...

      Creator Sue Hines on October 21

      Well unfortunately I also never received the replacement for the 7 stormflys that I bought and now just sit in their box on a shelf. I was under the impression months ago that the replacements were on the way. Did anyone in the US get replacements? Have to say this was an expensive lesson, think I'm done with Kickstarter.

      @Anabel: You're the only one. At least myself. My StormFly cannot connect to ANY of my Macbook, or Windows laptop since day one. And I have multiple communication with them, but that was like from MONTHS ago when I first got the StormFly.
      Since then, nothing, no replacement AT ALL!
      I e-mail them, message them through KS website, NO RESPONSE WHAT SO EVER!

      Just a guess here, but I'm beginning to think that this effort has died and there's no one left to respond to the comments that have recently been posted. I hope not, but as it's been over a month since the last official reply I think we can make the educated guess that StormFly is either now defunct or has been temporarily shuttered. Just my opinion, hope I'm wrong!

      Hi - I got my new stormfly in box and tried to use it, but it does not see my wifi card like the old one did before it crashed. In the "Stormfly Setup" it says there is an "authorization failure". Is there any way to re-do setup on a wired connection? The wired connection seems to work but I am unable to go back to the "register" section of the setup. Any help would be appreciated.

      The situation is not looking good.
      If you are not willing to send a unit you should send me a refund.

      I received a shipment tracking email about a week ago.

      Can anyone tell me in what configuration I can expect my replacement replacement Stormfly drive to arrive?

      Will it be a virgin Stormfly drive?

      Or, will it be a restored image of my original drive from the backup service since I was able to get the original drive working on one computer? I recall that I had to set up accounts and passwords, load the Wi-Fi drivers and install a Stormfly recommended application package before my original drive was ready for real use and loading of applications.
