I have handed over "my contacts" information to Chipp. And from all my heart, I hope for you all, that they manage to cut some kind of deal.
I wish you the best of luck ScribbyDaGreat, with the PCBs hopefully this will be allowed to succeed.
Now i will enjoy my "soon to become 2B" catleaps, and forget all about who can pee the longest! I will follow for sure, but its up to Chipp and OCN if this deal is ever going to happend!
bQvle - thanks so much for all your hard work! I hope OCN doesn't screw this up in the end (not anticipating they will, but who knows.) I am not sure why they feel the need to take over since it appeared this was simply going to be another monitor up for sale on eBay from Korea - we just happened to ask for particular guts. From what I read in the TOS posting about a monitor that may be for sale on another site, whether Amazon, Best Buy, etc. - yes even eBay without links, is not against the TOS. I see links to items for sale on this forum every day.
The Catleaps will not be branded anything other than that - Yamakasi - the Witech model designation for the Catleap - not OCN. Just because we have asked for them and talked extensively about them being made available doesn't mean OCN needs to take them over.
Again, this is my opinion based on talking with bQvle's contact (also mine for my extra PCBs), these are a special run monitor being sold on a separate website, eBay, by third party resellers. Why is OCN involved here? The explanation on the thread makes no sense when one understands what is really going on behind the scenes.
Is it a money grab, potentially, by OCN? Maybe. I know there are ZERO legal ramifications from informing the OCN community that these monitors are for sale on a particular site - and in the case of eBay not providing a direct link.
Having read and re-read the explanation it makes me real nervous about pursuing the PCBs and at the last minute OCN saying - "Nope, we are taking it from here thank you very much."
