Problem is that we're in the lead up to Christmas, and I'm sure ED is having to work loads extra right now...
Right after the production of the transparent cases has happened, the molds will move to the new company so they can produce the cases used for the normal mass production.
Can you believe it...? The case might finally be finished
The previous company was lazy as heck. They would shut the whole company down to go on vacation for the entire month of August even. But they were apparently the only company ED could get to make the molds. Now they're at a new company that doesn't make molds, but does do the injection, so there should be no more delays with the case.With full steam into the new year.
No, i can't belive that it take more than a year to produce 500 cases. This is simply unbelivable. I don't know what can cause such tramendous delays. There has to be some dark force that drives this project wrong.

It can't play an mp3 but can play C64 games from SD? Mp3 is still a streaming format, so there's tighter bounds on the latency of getting new data points than there is loading something effectively offline like a C64 rom, so that may be the difference. A few slightly bigger buffers would help with mp3 playback, but somethings still a bit weird if you can't play mp3s with the Pandora buffers; my 64GB Sandisk cards worked fine for mp3 playback on my Pandora.
Try trying 'dmesg' in a terminal after playing an mp3. Maybe there are caching errors in there or something. Also probably worth trying different players; I used to use deadbeef on my Pandora
I realize ED is busy this time of year. When he wrote the last message I was under the interpretation that the cases were overdue for arrival. It isn't super pressing, but I'm probably not the only one who is curious what happened to them.Still nothing to say about the cases? That's strange.
On the Pandora, it’s works whit the MP3, but whit VLC, not with the other program ..
Oh so that is a thing then? I thought it was, but then I thought someone said just this one company was doing it. I guess I was right the first time then!@Silent-Hunter: shutting down manufacturing firms and factories in hot-Mediterranean countries in July or August, isn't unheard of. Seems weird to me as I come from the UK, but since moving to Denmark, where almost nothing gets done in the summer when people have 3 to 4 weeks off for their holidays, it doesn't seem so weird anymore...
