You'll notice a few of the items double up (.156 trifurcons and 3A wire) but I thought it was better to separate out, just be aware when ordering. Hopefully everyone has a bit of wire lying around anyway that they can use. Please let me know if there are any mistakes or omissions!
Damn Davey! This would have saved me a **** ton of time last night.

As some of you may know I've been waiting on a shipment of Arduino Nanos to arrive before I can begin sending out everyones Afterglow boards. They've been running late - held up at a delivery office in East London somewhere. No customs letter received. The seller has just notified me to say they've now been been shipped back to China 😖 They've been nice enough to agree to resend but that may take a month or more.

In the meantime, I've ordered another 50 Nano boards from another supplier, which will hopefully arrive in two weeks. Very sorry for the holdup.

I am me
Stuff from China is a bit hit and miss at the moment, I am getting stuff weeks late - some of it coming overland from china to europe instead of via air (its interesting tracking stuff as it moves across china, through the 'stans and into eastern europe then across various countries in europe). Stuff via airmail seems to land in the UK - get pushed around a load of delivery offices in the south of england before making its way either up North to me or sent back to china. Royal Mail cannot cope. My local postie has to choose each day - is he delivering letters or is he delivering packets and parcels. He tells me that they are snowed under and the one man per van rule is a major problem, they dont have enough vans and cant hire enough to fill the need.

Post offices, couriers and freight companies around the world are overloaded. No one was ready for this. Our post offices in Canada went from "we're broke, we need to raise pricing, we need to be taken over by an outside source" to outsourcing parcel deliveries and throwing parcels into cargo containers, locking the doors for weeks on end because they have too many to deliver. They are working 7 days a week now and still cannot keep up.

If they think it's bad now, wait until Black Friday and Christmas rolls closer. They are going to drown.

Davey, no worries on the AG. It happens when it happens.

Righto - the Nanos are here, they're good quality, took the Microcore bootloader without complaining and are all installed with the Afterglow code.

We're ready to send!

The easiest way for me to collect everyones addresses and print the postage labels is to send out a 1p paypal invoice. If everyone could pay that when it arrives it'll automatically give me access to everyones addresses and I can then print the labels directly within paypal. Expect those invoices to appear in your inbox sometime later today.

@Vimtoman @Toxteth O'Grady @new forest pinball @M4carp @Julian @Tony @broomstick @MadNat @MajesticPinball @richk87 @DanLewell @David_Vi @replicas @BigIan

The people who were after cables will be fulfilled last as I'm still waiting for some red test probes to arrive. If anyone takes issue with that.. welll... this is the price you pay for making me crimp so many cables you bast3rds 😂

@Fifty you are a special case mate as I think i'm doing a bulk send for you with some other bits so let's chat about that separately.

I'm most likely going to wait for @MajesticPinball to sort mine out.

But as I'm off work for two weeks I'd be interested to see what I need and how you install it. Maybe I'll give it a bash

Sure mate I'll put you on the list.

Absolutely! Making up the cables will certainly not be beyond you, although you will have to buy a few tools and bits. PM me any questions you have.

Mine arrived yesterday @stumblor - cracking job mate - looks sexy in black.

Thanks for the handy widget also... already used it to custom mix TZ blue paint - for my cab restore project.

Off to grab ToTAN colours today

Oh man, I had an LED OCD in my White Water. It was night and day. I loved tweaking the brightness for each LED in the software. You need to get an AGGI for it, the GI does some funky GI stuff in that pin when multiball starts and when you complete the game.

@stumblor Is the AG software on Github? I'll admit I haven't look yet.
