May 16th 2020:
The second batch of kits (which are CD-drive compatible) is now delayed by almost a month. This was caused by shipping delays adding up between the components suppliers, the assembly factory and my place.
I currently have 2 of the 3 groups of parts required to start shipping complete kits.
I'm hoping to have everything ready for the last week of May.
The goal is still to have everyone served by the end of June, so I'll have to do 2 more batches instead of 3 to get things moving faster. Bank is informed.
