Currently 7 left... I went for 20 boards ( have to order in multiples of 5 ) So 2 more boards sold would hit 15 PCBs. There ares still a few who said they would order, but haven't yet.. I am updating the first post with status of people.. viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1032

I volunteered Jon (rubber_jonnie) to coordinate with people on various groups who say they can donate some Falcon Ram cards to the project. Will be some postage costs involved of course.. Depending on how things work out, could likely be possible to send some cards to people for basically free..

It has got tricky with working out postage costs with the motherboards alone, its on the border of RoyalFail not being able to post them (size wise) Then costs jump to like £50+.. So it could actually be cheaper to post RAM cards separately.. Everything is a bit "up in the air" but just keeping people in the loop of things...

I have one RAM board coming for me, and another that is being donated for free, though won't arrive until later in the month due to the (very kind) person who's donating being on holiday.

I have another three possibles I'm waiting for a reply from, so I'll update as and when I know more.

If you know of anyone who may have a 1MB or 4MB Falcon RAM board who is willing to donate to the project, let me know and I'll do my best to coordinate efforts.

The only people I know who have falcons are on here. Never seen one in the flesh so to speak.

Incidentally Chris, if it makes it easier, I could probably collect the pcb from you when you have it?

Think you live like 2 hours away from me ? Its normally easier just to post stuff out, I'm in and out all times of day so pointless trying to arrange from here, my girlfriends deals with all the orders anyway ( I don't live with her either, shes about 30 miles away). There is a shed thing outside her flat where it could be left for pickup anytime, but nobody as yet had risked dropping stuff off or collecting stuff from there yet (well other than the postman that is).
