Just two backers so far, but both have shelled out over US$1k  :palm:
Well... I wonder if those backers are real, or if it's "Maxim's marketing friends"

...just to have both Solus threads on the same page...

It's down to one again, and it's a fairly common tactic on indiegogo to "buy" from yourself to make yourself look more legit, so might just be one fake as well.

If you look at the one backer's history, you can see that he's got a habit of dumping money on obvious scams, so he's likely a shill.

It is a "service" that he provides, for a fee.

*whispers conspiratorially*

That's what a shill is.

Agreed, nice.

Though I think one could spend countless hours chasing these nuts.  This one is funny because they certainly put some time and effort in the marketing.  Nice looking units and all.  Their quick payday evaporated.

One has to wonder really how long & where they pop up next.  Dave certainly pissed in their corn flakes none the less.
