Uhhhhh, does it look like TMP is running a business here ?
He made a first batch of 30 carts to "test the water" which I can fully understand and they all sold -probably enexpectedly- quickly. It's not exactly the only cartridge available for the Atari 8 bits machines, so tmp might have been surprised by its quick successs.
He clearly wrote that he was pretty new to the A8 (scene) so it could well be that he didn't expect to sell them all so soon.
Yes the AVG sales list proves there is demand for at least 50 or so more, but he also seems to be pretty busy with fine tuning the firmware. I'm sure he also has a day job and real-life besides the avg cartridge, who knows maybe he is on summer holiday or maybe he got sick of all of us screaming for one or more AVG carts
Does the fact that you are from the same country give you more rights to buy one then others ???
Does the fact that you wrote an article about the cartridge (without actually Having one to test , which is already kinda weird) give you more rights to buy one then others ?
I don't think so.
If you show the same kind of attitude in your PMs I can fully understand why tmp is ignoring them.
Maybe you missed it but tmp hasn't responded to this thread or the list thread since he ran out of the first batch. He also clearly stated that thread was only for the first batch. So, all we can do is be patient and wait in line...Just like everybody else. Oh and I'm pretty sure everyone who showed their interest in 1 or a few has money too....
These kind of projects are hobby projects, people make them because it's fun, they can help fellow A8 users with the product and maybe earn a few bucks....it's not a huge company from who you can demand next day delivery.
