OK, this is the official pre-order thread, for these:
2011-09-28-122745.jpg

They are the Standard Edition, and the Deluxe Edition, deluxe edition includes an activity LED.

pricing will be as follows:

Assembled kit: $26
edited:$21
just need your own sio plug end, the kind that screws together.

Standard Edition: $31
edited:$26
ready to go like the one on the left

Deluxe Edition: $41
edited:$36
ready to go, with activity LED.

all versions will come with a DVD, which is a copy of my atari archive folder, and has 4GB (unsorted beyond pre-existing sort) of various things.
If you need a mini-USB cable its $1.50 additional

delivery is esitimated at ~3 weeks from time of pre-order closing, which is roughly 27th or 28th of Oct (the PCB's are to blame, they take 3 weeks...)
shipping is $5 in the US, and $14 to most of Euro-land (UK, Germany, Poland, specifically)

any details just ask... after the pre-order, the price will be kit-$30, standard-$35, deluxe-$45, for the various versions, i will continue to sell them as a regular thing, along with my original usb model. (which is $45, if anyone is interested in one of those...)

IM me here, for payment detail.

for questions you can IM me here, or to talk to me more immediately I usually can be found in irc,
( for irc there is a web client pre-configured to connect to the channel at http://sloopy.digitalglass.us/ and for those with an irc client - server: irc.newnet.net channel: #Atari )

PLEASE SEE POST #32 IN THIS THREAD FOR EXPLAINATION OF EDITED PRICES.

This is really cool, thanks for designing it!

I wonder if it would work with the (now very inexpensive) Linux-based USB 2.0 Nokia N800 & N810... if so, the N800/N810 would be a very ideal smart-peripheral for the Atari 8-bits.

I wish I'd known about these a week ago! I just recently purchased a RS232(com)-to-USB cable and driver for my old rs232 SIO2PC! It cost me just over $20 with shipping, I would have bought one of these! No need at the moment for more than one SIO2xxx unit though...good news is the cable and driver work, setting up a com5 port through one of my laptops usb ports!

Ok, so far 20 spoken for... i was able to get the parts that take 3 weeks to ship ordered, so hopefully they should arrive about the 24th of Oct. i just need to order some parts, which are coming from a US supplier, so they should take a week at most.


i tried to put a table in here with number ordered of each type, etc... but the c&p looked fine, but when i posted it, it went all in one line... :'/


we want 20 more orders, who wants one or two?

thanks to those who have ordered,

sloopy.

I might be interested in replacing my Atarimax SIO2PC with one of these, what software does this use?

it uses http://aspeqt.sourceforge.net/ AspeQt, a newer device emulator, that is compatible with Windows and GNU/Linux OS's...

before they start shipping, i will (try;') to make binary deb's available for Debian and Ubuntu, and if i can rem how, an RPM for Fedora
