The link to the issues list results in a 503 error - service unavailable. Hopefully, this is temporary.

I just upgraded the hosting servers for the website. Apparently the bots from all the search engines are overloading them right now. Trying to get it fixed.

Thanks for the Update. You know everyone is anxious to get theirs, and this goes a long way. Keep the information coming and good luck to all who are waiting.

The steel control boxes have been powder coated, all the remaining drivers and power supplies are in the shop now. Just waiting on the batch of PCB boards to come in. I will probably post an update once those arrive. They are in assembly now, hoping they will be completed assembly in the next few days.

First off I hope everyone is doing the best they can in times like these. Secondly, @andy, did the boards actually ship as you stated they might 12days ago?

Just hoping for some insights to when we might expect these to ship. Yes I understand there are a lot of things happening in this world that are or could cause delays. I’m okay with that as long as I am informed, could Sienci try and post once a week here to give us what they know? Even if it’s, “WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE BOARDS TO ARRIVE FROM CHINA”

I am still waiting on the boards. Not sure why they are delayed.

This is the second production pt 2 update. https://sienci.com/2020/03/12/production-updates-for-batch-2-pt-2/
