You can get a basic idea of where you are in the queue if you know what date you preordered.
Week 01 (01/05-07/05): 563 pre-orders (000-563)
Week 02 (08/05-14/05): 82 pre-orders (563-645)
Week 03 (15/05-21/05): 53 pre-orders (645-698)
Week 04 (22/05-28/05): 28 pre-orders (698-726)
Cutting the logo down the line you have and placing a light barrier (like thin black paper) then gluing back together would work better i'd think. The logo is side lit not lit from underneath, correct me if im wrong.
Honestly not really, couple of factors
1) Currently we have enough pre orders to do 1,000 units. Only if we break it up into 2 batches of 500. With 2-4 weeks inbetween batches. This can change depending on pre-orders
2) We still need to order parts which can have lead times and have the PCB's...
