Would you consider releasing tf536 on different licence (no commercial use). Just for people who are going to build it themselves without support obviously?
I did that with the TF534 and I had people come onto this forum this week and accused me of screwing them over, making a quick buck (LOL) and not supporting them. I'm not going to do that again.

EDIT: the irony is that people accused me of being spiteful for not releasing the TF534 before. I simply cant win.
That is the reason why we can't have nice things...

I would kindly ask to reconsider your decision in the future. :)

In all honesty... I dont want this to be work. I dont want the money. I have a job... i do fine. Thats actually why i've tried to make these cheap as chips.

When people come and demand that i do things for them because they arent happy I will shut that thing down. Especially when people get snarky at me. I do this for fun. You can share if you want. So right at the moment I cant see myself coming back to the A500. But that might change.

For each unhappy "customer" you have at least a dozen who are happy as f**k. Problem is that you don't see those people as they are too busy playing with new hardware :D

Well we can let AlenPPC be the judge. If he's happy to build the TF536 once he gets i back i may reconsider.

I do understand you. There are people who thinks that they own you when you release something wich they want/get.

BUT idiots are everywhere and nobody could do anything without have problems with them. So you shouldn't let them take away joy of doing things. (Easy to say, I know)

I admit that you are resource wich Amiga scene doesn't have had before. There are plenty of people who can design their own accelertors, but 99% of them have huge problems of making code for their cards. Myself I'm eager to get accelerator for my CDTV, but I woun't be bugging you with my questions daily, or weekly or even monthly :D You cdtv.device is fine examble!! Thanks for that.

The only way i can do this is not to do everything. Not to make things perfect. Some features I deliberately leave off because it filters out the idiots.

Like arkadiusz.makarenko said, there are A LOT more happy users than unhappy ones, but the unhappy ones make a lot more noise. I do however understand your frustration. Keep squishing TF360 bugs, and I we'll see what happens down the road.

I wouldn't be surprised if AlenPPC will be getting a lot of bribes in the coming weeks. ;)
A kludge is a workaround or quick-and-dirty solution that is clumsy, inelegant, inefficient, difficult to extend and hard to maintain.

Second that, your work is much appreciated by every single Amiga fan I know!!
