I think I must be related to Moome, we both have a hard time getting things out on time, and we both have a hard time sticking to the promised date. And we also both seem to be on your radar.
But check this, we both seem to keep folk wanting what we have. I hope that's not causing you to continue to loose much sleep..
well I already have a full set of your boards in my 8500, so I sleep just fine.
AFA Moome, I only bought his HDMI card once others had already received theirs so I got mine in 2 weeks. I am grateful to all the folks who pre-paid, waited 6 months and ultimately helped fund the project but I am too high strung to have my money out floating around in Cyberspace for that long.
The trouble with waiting 6 months for MP mods for the average person is it usually means they're PJ is down
for the entire length of time. Lets face it, that sucks.
the other option is for them to gamble on buying spare VIM and 3 VNB's off E-bay but then that will easilly add +$400. to the cost of hot-rodding their machine. I don't mean to bust anyone's balls, without Moome and MP this hobby might already be dead, but lets face it. The choices for the avergae person running a typical 8500 are
1) spend the $1400. + dollars and wait 3,4, even 5 months? for the mods to let their machine do 1080P or
2) just say to hell with it, sell their 8500 for $1500. and get a sony Pearl which is already 1080P razor sharp for less than $3k.
It's basically the same amount of money, and the second choice is a lot less furstration. I would just like to see option 1 become an easier choice to make, that's all. I hope you can figure out to make it happen mike.
