Quick Timeline Update

Hey folks,

Just a quick update regarding the GameDock delivery timeline. From as early as late February to almost the end of April, we attempted to work with a PCB vendor that had been recommended to us. After many weeks of back-and-forth, trying to work with them, we just couldn't get what we needed. As such, we have switched to a local, trusted vendor. This has set our expected delivery date back from mid-April to late May. 

One lesson learned in this process has been just how slow things can move with vendors abroad. Both the gamepads and the enclosures had taken easily 8 weeks longer to deliver than promised, despite great communication and friendly folks whom I'd gladly work with again. But this particular component proved that even after lengthy delays and much persistence, things can still go awry. 

My apologies for the delay. But we want to make sure that we deliver the best product possible and potentially flawed circuit boards just wouldn't have been acceptable. With that said, during this final push, expect more small updates like this. The plan is to share screenshots of the circuit board production as it progresses. 

Thanks,
Chris
