Delivery and call for donations
Dear Atari-Community. The delivery of the second Firebee-series has finally begun.

Since we currently are receiving the modified boards in small batches from the assembly company as announced before, the computers will be sent out in the order they were ordered. Thank you once again for your patience. The computers will have, as had been mentioned several times, two years of warranty.

We now also know the exact costs for the whole "game" with the busdriver-components. All in all, Medusa Computer Systems now has to pay 2720.- Euros extra for searching the cause of the problem and for refitting the boards. Since we calculated the prices very narrowly in order to be able to pass on the 40.- Euro price reduction to you, we don't want to just increase the fixed price again now. Instead, we will try an experiment. We would like to collect the 2720.- Euro in a solidary effort. Anyone who can afford it could pay a little more, those who are short on money only a very small amount. Maybe there are also people that have not (yet) ordererd a computer and still would like to support the project. Therefore we would like to ask you to pool up and provide the money together. Everything that won't come in through you will have to be paid by MCS itself...

All donations can be sent to the SEPA bank account of MCS or via Paypal.

Can you give us an indication of the amount of donation required? 10 Euro p.p.? 2-? More? Have you worked out what you would LIKE each member of the community to provide.

As I cannot tell what the "community" is exactly, there is no amount. What should be counted as community? All FireBee owners, all buyers of the 2nd series, the 400 to 500 uniqe clients usually visiting this website every day, the about 2000 serious Atari users that I expect to be in existance?? ;)
No, solidarity means that everyone is giving what is possible for him/her.

I can tell you that we got already more than 1000 Euros donated. From a lot more people than posting here. Thanks so far for every single buck that helps, and gives especially much motivation!
