Update on MK2 and KeyRah - Jan. 28, 2019
The magical words: "203,86 €, Shipped", appeared next to my order number. The C64 Reloaded MK2 motherboard is on it's way from Germany.
Additionally, I received an email notification from Individual Computers with DHL.de tracking information. At the time of this article's writing, the parcel has not been scanned by DHL in Germany. The text of the email is below
Dear customer, thank you for your payment - your order ID 50836 has been shipped. The tracking number is: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Registered mail can be tracked under www.deutschepost.de/briefstatus while it's still in Germany. Please note that the tracking number may change when it has reached your country - your local post service may help you translating this tracking number into a local tracking number. DHL tracking numbers can be tracked on www.dhl.de . Please note that www.dhl.com DOES NOT FIND our tracking numbers, because they are shipped from Germany. Thanks again for your business - please recommend us! your team from Individual Computers GmbH Germany.
As you can see, the email is in English. My excitement grows.
Likewise, the KeyRah as shipped, via Royal Air Mail. The email notification was less helpful:
Amiga Kit Amiga Store ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Order Number: XXXXX Date Ordered: Friday 25 January, 2019 Order details and shipping updates are available by clicking the following link: http://amigakit.amiga.store/account_history_info.php?order_id=XXXXX The comments for your order are: Your order has been packed and is awaiting despatch Processed by: Matthew Your order has been updated to the following status: New status: Awaiting Despatch ** IMPORTANT: DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL ** If you have any questions regarding this order please contact us here: http://amigakit.amiga.store/support
Tracking information is available through their website, however, it has not been delivered to the Royal Air Mail at this time.
My excitement is causing my muscles to spasm. I literally cannot wait to start on these two projects.
A C64 will be restored within all it's licensed glory with the MK2 motherboard. An emulator with an authentic keyboard and case will be born with the KeyRah.
We will see which one will be better, more useful, or just which one is more fun.
Thanks for reading,
