Default Anyone Around??? What happened to the Kenbak kit?

Hi Everyone...

It's been a while since the anouncement of the Kenbak kit.

June 12th was the anouncement that the kit was finished and would ship in a couple weeks.

June 27th was the notice that the kits would ship the first week of July.

July 16th word arrived that the goal was to ship in two more weeks, a week longer for a signature by the designer.

Six more weeks have passed. Are we getting closer to a firm availability date?

Understand, I don't mean to complain. The orignal Altair 8800 was announced January 1975, but didn't ship until April. The Altair 680 was announced November 1975, but shipped mid 1976. So we kit-builders are a bit used to delays. It's interesting that when the original Altair was delayed, nobody wanted their money back. I'm sure everyone interested in this kit is willing to wait until x-mas, but we're probably just a little bit "antsy" without any news. How about an update?

- Steven.
