Re: [N8VEM-S100:2315] Re: accepting pre-orders for the S-100 Z80 CPU V2 board

I kind of struggle with sending checks out that might or might not be cashed.  It's a bit annoying when I try to balance my checkbook.  

If that is Andrew's preference I'll certainly support that method.  But I'd hope we could find something better.  

If checks are the way forward, I rather like the idea of sending Andrew one big check that I know he would cash to convert into "board credits" (roll the shipping into the cost of the board and make it $23/credit for US people), and use those $$$ in the interim to move along the fabrication of various batches of *all of the different boards* until the board I want comes up and I opt to use the credits.  I think this would build up a pool of resources that would allow the process to move forward for everything.

At least for Citibank and BofA their online banking allows you to send money to an individual as a check via US mail. It’ easier that writing an actual check and going to mail it. And is every way acts the same.

Anybody the wants boards simply sends Andrew such a check (with the board type on the memo). Hand written checks can of course be also used. 

We take a no check no order policy.   ).  He accumulates them and if/when a trigger point number is reached sends out the order.  If after say 3 months not enough orders arrive then the check is returned un-cashed.


Frankly since Andrew has to administer all of this there has to be his cost “overhead”.   It’s unfair he gets stuck with this task, day in, day out.    I’m not sure what the number is, but I’m guessing $10 at least.


I think distributing the task around to different people, particularly somebody that has never done this before is asking for trouble and definitely not for overseas users.
