Hear Hackaday community!

I have to say sorry! Sorry about my no answer, sorry about my delayed response, sorry about the whole situation.
I had two weeks off due to my personal issues.

This project beat me - to much work, to much assembly, to much things to do in the same time for a single person, I'm overloaded.

I tried to assembly the boards with 2 colleagues but even for that was too much work for a small team. Now I'm working alone and I really don't know that the next 2 weeks should be enough for finish the assembly of the rest of the 30 pcs.

Sorry! This project was one of the stupidest idea that I made (due to overloading).
IC shortage and issues with partially assembled and ordered PCBs - these things beat me - because I tried to manually assembled all the boards with missing components.

For next few days I will prepare and test 20 pcs for the first customers that paid the initial payment - please see the picture below.

After I will finish the whole assembly and test the rest boards (about 50 pcs and for another project - bitpirat - about 15 pcs) I will close any manual assembly and testing.

The next batches will be manufactured by external companies and boards will be offered by at least one distributor from Europe (Denmark or UK), if everything will be OK.

Again sorry about that situation.
