Would love to have 4 of these, if possible. Cool project!

I omitted to say this: I'm keeping note of who has expressed interest and I'll keep people updated.

These will still be a few weeks away yet: I need to get some last stage testing done of the production design just to make sure it's as good as I can get it, and both work and domestic life are kind of full at the moment. But progress is being made :)

I would love a couple of these, though my Classic and Classic II are both in pieces at present while pending recapping. A real genius of development!

Interested in at least two. What a phenomenal project! Woz would be proud I suspect.

I'm definitely interested in at least 2, possibly 4 of these. A lovely piece of engineering.

Looks like theres a good amount of interest. I'll tell everyone this: these things really do work as good as they sound. A wonderful piece of technology for us all to use.

Will there be a version with wired Ethernet instead?
Maybe. Do you want one?​

Definitely, yes! It would e.g. enable us using 68k Macs all over the place in large congresses like the Chaos Communication Congress (some 17k visitors, some 30k devices in one network). It’s a switched network, but there’s no L2 connectivity between sites.

That's good feedback. Can you remind me about this when I've got the first batch of wireless ones out? I've been designing another board as an experiment as a possible basis for an LT <-> Ethernet gateway, and perhaps that would be good hardware platform for Ethernet LToUDP, as well.

I confirm my interest. I guess having an idea about the possible price could help everybody define a number... in my case from 1 to 5 it could be a wide difference :D

You're absolutely right, and I should have said something earlier.

The boxes will be £23 each + P&P. I haven't sorted out packing materials yet so I don't know how much that'll be, and postage will obviously vary depending on where people are.

In that case put me down for 2 :)

Great! I am down for 2 items as well, when you will be ready!
