Re: When does the second production batch start

Wed Feb 08, 2012 2:47 am

as for my numbers a post several days ago said there was 85000 on mailing list and I expect at that rate of growth of the mailing list it will reach 100000 by the time the first batch start to sell, I did not even add in the forum members as I would expect that a vast majority of them are already on the mailing list (Many of them probably joined the mailing list before even becoming a forum member LOL(lurkers per say)).

I lurked for nearly a month before joining the forums(guilty as charge put on the cuffs)

Thank you for your post.

Robert.
If you are more worried about ,spelling, punctuation or grammar you have probably already missed the point so please just move on.

Basic is better than C++

Humm.. I thought it was not yet closed to prevent another one starting up again. Sort of like a pressure overflow or waste pipe.

Well, lets see.....

Didn't you know BASIC is better than C++?  Hell, its better than C!  I mean, how can you tell where you are in a C/C++ program?  There' aren't any line numbers!  And whats all this about linux?  I've got to pay the ISP so I can download it,;even if I borrow it off a friend, I've got to pay for the CD or DVD, and if I don't have any friends, I've got to buy a copy of Linux Format for the cover disk!  Of course it isn't free!  Then there's that damn cat!  Always leaving dead mice in my shoes....  It fair puts me off my lunch, I was going to have a cheese sandwich, but now I've got to use the cheese in a mousetrap to catch the mice before the cat does....

Ahhh!!!!

There you go!  Sorted!

Not when the only chocolate left in the house is Marmite flavoured…

The best way to close down the thread is to ask "When is the first batch......"

OK I locked it.

Also gave me the opportunity to FIRST lock and then try to add this post. Seems as Admin you can do it. Much better as it should prevent cross posting when writing the lock comment.
