So, today PayPal stopped locking away the money you’ve been paying me for GDEMU. Or rather, they will stop doing it, most of my account balance is still frozen and will be like that for weeks to come. Apparently it’s because I have too many unresolved issues with my customers – and so that you know, that number is zero, not a single issue has been filed. Still, zero is a bit too much. 100% customer satisfaction is just not cutting it these days.
PayPal also warned me that the lockdown might return, and listed a number of reasons for that which can basically be summed up as “because”. Well, it could be worse. I know people who had much less luck than me and got their account locked for good until they deliver blood of their firstborn, on a full moon. All of it.
The good news is I got the PCBs and started assembly of the second part of the run. Now this will probably take another 2-3 weeks to finish so if you’re near the end of the waiting list you will have to wait some more. But you will get the revised PCB with screw mount. This also goes for people who ordered 2 units but received only 1 so far.
Lastly, there were some questions in the comments about making GDEMU-like devices for other CD-ROM based systems that are old and start to fail – I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately and decided to investigate. This is all I can say for now🙂
