Maybe she’s working on the New Silk Road project; China’s veiled attempt to look good in the eyes of developing nations, but in reality these poor countries will be in dept up to their ears for overpriced projects.

So they are running an underground black market on the internet that uses cryptocurrency?

So they are striving to be in debt to China, like we are!! Gotta have goals..

I think a new NSNL was supposed to be today. Anyone else hear that?

#6610 1 year ago

Looks like we are waiting until next week, darn.

Quoted from PinBalt:

I think a new NSNL was supposed to be today. Anyone else hear that?

The official word from DP in their last NSNL was: "our next newsletter will be after the EAG show".

I think that receiving one today was just hopeful speculation by others.

#6612 1 year ago

Still nothing today, here's something to close out our week, good times in June 2016

I can see how it would be incredibly difficult to attend a show AND write one of those extensive emails. Never picked up a great sense of urgency over at DP. Would love one of those machines someday...

#6614 1 year ago

Yes - I heard from good source that it will actually be next week for update. I was just being hopeful for today

Seems like an email like that would be pretty easy? More like a text. “Still no games, and we have no longer have your money”. Lol

#6617 1 year ago

good thing and the main thing is at EAG the "new"TBL model is as good/well made as the first batch + Jaap and Barry have a long list of customers in line I guess too in Europe as well as in the US

#6618 1 year ago

Any update on the games being held hostage?

They still have not paid the first factory, So nothing has been done.

#6620 1 year ago

Here’s to hoping for an update today

Lets hope it's not a No Show Newsletter!

Guys. Sorry for the news but the flue has hit the family of Barry this week so there was no time for a NSN, apologies for this. We have at this moment a fluewave in NL

Scheduled now for next week Friday.

However, so you have some news, see below attached a picture of the box in which engineering sample 3 arrived in DP office NL. More in next week’s NSN but can already tell you testing it went OK.

So on behalf of DP apologies for the lack of a NSN. Illness came in the way

that's ok......didn't expect much but more excuses anyways. Very hard to work when you have the flu.

Just get around to things when you feel better Barry.....no rush.

Here's my NSNL. The plan was for TBL to be my first pin. My AFMr LE should be delivered next week and it'll be my first pin.

Will TBL be my second?

Or my third?

Or my ________?

Yea, there are only hundreds of thousands of dollars sitting in limbo, waiting for any news, but by all means, lay in bed and get better. Newslettering is hard..

You may want to consider adding an Addition to your house basement. TBL may be your 103rd at the rate this business is going.

Just played an AFMr LE today...wow stunning. You are going to be very pleased, congratulations.

#6630 1 year ago

I look forward (hopefully) to the day when I drive up to Cointaker and get one that's in stock. I'm not holding my breath, but I really want to own a TBL someday.

Thanks. I'm really excited about it. I hadn't been following it for a few months thinking that the LE's were probably all spoken for, but made a few phone calls after reading the board and I'm getting one with black trim.

I hate it when I am sick and can't sit in bed and be on a computer.

You mean Millions of dollars missing, Pre order money is gone. They already admitted that.

Must have missed that. Silly details.

Please post a link where they admited that millions of dollars are missing and all the preorder money is gone.

200 Pins were paid for by early achievers. They were like usd 8000 incl tax. So where are the millions Lebowski ?? Still a big chunk of money, don’t forget to deduct the tax, not millions for sure.

They never said all the money is gone. They said not enough money was left to built all the 150 left early achiever units. That is something else as all gone. If it was all gone tbl2.0 wouldn’t be happening right now. This is also why they are talking about new sales to get new cash in the house to make it tick. Some will call it a Ponzi scheme but here it is implemented to get everybody their tbl.

But it won't, so Ponzi scheme. If they can't care enough to put out 3 paragraph newsletter that takes 10 mins to compose from bed, well, ya...

Ok his statement was off saying Millions but 1.6 MILLION is Still pretty close in comparison no? 200x8000. Still a Hell of a Lot of money for 50 games made. That would come out to $32,000 per game and one Hell of a Party! lol As for no time to send a letter or email while sick. If you have nothing to say why bother I guess. No games, no money, please keep sending in your orders! Got it!

I am pretty excited by the crate photo. That engineering sample in the photo is a major milestone. I imagine it's getting the "You see what happens. You see what happens, Larry!" treatment. I would be less excited if a good 2 weeks didn't pass before they approve the samples. If they get approved too quickly, a problem might slip through.

I too, am optimistic. But get real, it’s just a photo of a crate.

I haven't given up hope... Let's hope this sample knocks it out of the park and we can get our machines.
