Congrats! That's weird, I did the same but it didn't help. Enjoy!!

I was apparently first in the queue, but there was a PayPal glitch, and things broke a little with the site so it didn't go through. They got back to me so I could complete the transaction. I probably would have been about as happy with the smaller Fabrikat, but these look really nice, and hey… eight extra algorithms.

There was an "add to basket" button when I got the email on the 856, but it was gone when I went to checkout. So a strange symmetry between us.

Indeed! I had the Form 2 in my cart but it wouldn't let me check out! It told me to check back in an hour. Heh. Yeah right!! We'll have to report on both.

Lots of great tools being made by great builders that's for sure. I think Henry got a Zellersasn too.

I managed to grab one! Might end up trading my Fabrikat once this gets here.

It looks like the time zone thing threw a ton of people off. That second email time zone email definitely confused me so I made sure to triple check everything. Seems like a lot of people don’t realize that Norway is in daylight savings (CEST as opposed to CET).

Exactly. It was 4PM CST instead of 5PM (as the interweb thought it was <g>). If you want to unload the Fabrikat please keep me in mind.

I missed out on even trying for a Fabrikat because I didn't check the time difference properly, so this time I was refreshing like mad, I shut down every other page too, just in case it helped speed things up, and the second the Form2 appeared I added it to my cart and then filled in the forms like crazy :)

As others have said, by the time I hit Paypal it was already too late (11:02).

TBH it was more than I ought to be spending, so I'm not that fussed that I missed out - I'll see if I can pick up a Fabrikat when the next batch is available.

As mentioned elsewhere I cheered myself up by buying an EHX 8 Step Program, so I'll be having fun seeing what it works with and hopefully not blowing anything up.

Excited that I got one of these. Can't wait to hear people's experiences once they start arriving.

Managed to muck up the time of the sale somehow :/ so sorry guys. As for loaded fv-1 chips there are many programs available in the spinsemi forum. Quite easy to compile them into hex files and upload them to a ROM chip (24LC32A)

I'm afraid I was partially responsible for the time zone confusion. I was confused stemming from the use of CET vs. daylight savings time.At any rate I reached out for clarification, and the second email was sent.

I missed out due to timezones for the second time (both my fault due to the fact that I'm an idiot). Oh well. I was hoping just to get one and trade it for a Fabrikat anyway, cos I don't see a whole lot of people with them trading for much else. :lol:

I see that one version of the Form2 manual mentions a programming procedure document for that 4th bank. Is that document available to us somewhere?
