There's stuff you can't ignore, tho 😉
Usually I keep it kinda similar.

Everyone who messaged me between the first of April and today will get a way to donate via PM til tomorrow evening at worst - funds have to be recieved til the 17th. After that donations are closed for good, with no more further exceptions.

Still working on the logo...
oVMxb_UqyFM.jpg

The star and the font take time to seem authentic. But tomorrow everything will be ready.

As I don't have any experience in putting Corel drawings on the silkscreen (as I already said, hyperborean designed the GUS PnP RAM adapter you're already aware of), so some help for converting it to 1-bit and putting in Eagle will be very much appreciated!

Hi hard1k. I work daily on vector logo and fonts to put them in 1bit color printers so I can definitively help with that. Don't hesitate to contact me in PM.

Still no PMs from me ... those will potentially be delayed a bit, quite busy currently. Hope to have them out by tonight.

PMs sent.
No more exceptions from now on. Funds from those messaged will have to be recieved by the 22th of April.
In case I missed someone, PM me again and include when you sent your initial PM.

Hey man, wish you all the best. This is clearly something you love doing and what will come out of it will be very very cool. I'm just happy to see you have fun and get away from everyday life issues such as your family matters that you've addressed in the past.
All the best!

Great! However before doing that I'd ask shock__ and the community if they want this logo to be on the PCB. If there is such interest, I guess we'll go ahead 😀
