Dear backers! Just a quick thumbs up about what is going on right now:

1) We brought the 100 faulty USB sticks to the factory last week (97, to be exact, because our developers kept 3 pieces for testing purposes), and they allowed us to search their warehouse for good sticks that satisfy our requirements. After a short search, we have found a box of sticks with the same properties as our 2 sample sticks that we earlier purchased from this factory for testing purposes. As already mentioned, those sticks boot KolibriOS just fine. Now the factory has to move the metallic clip with the logo from 97 faulty sticks to the good ones. They promised to finish this till next Monday (February 24th), so on Monday we are going to pay them a visit again, and hopefully get the good sticks in our hands.

2) We have submitted an application to Google Summer of Code 2014. Now Google is reviewing all applications they received this year. We will know the results of our application when Google publishes them, also on Monday February 24, 19:00 UTC. We really hope that this time we are selected - please keep your fingers crossed! Until then, you may wish to browse our ideas page for GSoC 2014.

Finally, we wanted to let you know that we really appreciate your kind words and warm attitude to us. When we faced delays with students completing their code and unexpected problems with your rewards, you - our backers - were always here to say that you believe in us, and that you want us to continue doing what we do. Without your support, we would never be able to accomplish what we have. Tons of thanks to all of you!

      Too many attention to USB flashes, it is good about you, though.
      I do not care about sticks, I love your project!
