Ola jookie,

Is this firmware related or related to the new batch of hardware? I have a few machines and an older model cosmosex, so i van apply testcases of the new firmware on multiple machines to see if I van Fins nin-working images that work on other machines.

Of course only if its firmware related ;)

Let me know

New and old CosmosEx devices have now only different Xilinx chip and Xilinx chip firmware, but same Franz, Hans and Main App firmware / software. So if you will test something over ACSI or floppy with the older CosmosEx, it should work with the new firmware and both old and new HW.

When I'm normally going to work, I can at least sit at the computer (at the office) and reply e-mails and forum posts, but now being home with wife and kids complicates things.

Oh boy, does this sound familiar. :-)
Here's my two cents' worth: Put things on hold for a while until you find that you have some spare time/energy left over for other things, or it will stress you out. Your wife and kid deserve your full attention now.

Hey Jookie,

I only recently found out about your amazing product. I can't seem to find a place to buy one. When will there be a new batch available? (I already have both a Raspberry Pi and a Pi 2, so just need the CosmosEx board I guess)

Thanks!
David

The batches I make aren't too big, and there are no reservations, so it's more like the faster you try to buy it when it's available, the higher chances are that you will be able to buy it then ;) So if you're fast and lucky enough, you will get one at the end of february.

I can't make too much of them at once as I'm not sure if they all will be sold if I make too much of them, so that's why the batches aren't that large. Last time it was sold out in 2 days... (and kept me busy for a week to send them out).

I see. But since I am on mailing list it should show me right away when they are availble, right?

Hello,

In the shopping section, the CosmosEx is again present. Does this mean we can soon order ?

I'm not sure how you see CosmosEx present and where, but no :) Please wait until somewhere around the end of february. My estimate is around 25th of february.

I got this back from Jookie yesterday, looks promising:

the devices will be available from next week as they are currently being manufactured. Just wait for the notification e-mail.

I don't think it works like that. You need to go and register on his site:

No problem, let's wait and see. I want to buy a scsi version, so looking forward to see the email as well. It was just fortunate that I asked him a day before your post.

I'm hoping we hear word soon, I want to catch one on this batch (been checking every day). The last batch sold out before my paycheck came. -.-

Hello Jookie,

I hope all goes well for the arrival of your boy.

We expect the new batch and hope to hear from you soon.

Today we learned that the Raspberry Pi 3 is out.

Do you think it's too early for you to work with him?
Can we change the Pi2 by simply Pi3? (For the wifi particular).

Thank you and see you soon.

Hello, instead of posting the current status here and elsewhere everyday, I've made a simple page which you can check every time you want :)
http://joo.kie.sk/cosmosex/buy/status/

It will be updated ever time there will be some change. The batch will be sold few devices at the time - PayPal requires the packages to be shipped soon after payment, and too much payments will cause me to be stuck under of pile of orders, which I could fail to send within required time, so instead I will turn on the store, get few payments, turn off the store ;) and the state will be reflected on that status page.

As for RPi 2 and RPi 3 - currently they are not supported, because the current linux distro in CE doesn't support them, but there will be transition to standard Raspbian in the near future (for those who want - the current linux distro will be still supported), and at that time the RPi 2 and RPi 3 will be probably supported. I don't know when it that going to happen, but it will be only a change in the software, so this doesn't limit the sales of hardware.

Currently there is no benefit from higher performance of RPi 2 and RPi 3, and as they are more expensive as RPi 1, I'm not sure if most of the people would really want them - people don't like the high price of CE + RPi even now; even if it combines more peripherals in a single device.

Hello Jookie.

You talk about Paypal. It's your prefered payment ? I don't have Paypal count, I want to pay with transfert Bank.

But if you say to me : "It's better with Paypal to be sure to obtain the C.E. I opened one.

Thank's
