The first 200 (at least) I will be shipping myself.
If I do use the same mail company again, I have made it clear I will only use Australia Post, not Directlink.

EARLY SIGNATURE EDITION.

You'll also get a low serial number unit 5 6-15...

Or are you anticipating selling 4 "I have more money than sense" option?

I'm using it because I talk about Kickstarter all the time on the AmpHour, and doing my own campaign means I'll be able to now talk with some authority on the subject.

Non-US projects are handled differently. I don't need an amazon payments account like all US projects creators do, and the money goes directly into my back account minus a merchant fee. I don't know what CC merchant they are using though?

! Private video

I have never funded a kickstarter... until now. But this device is a darn useful tool to have and I could not pass up the opportunity. It won't be used often, but when it is needed it will be like gold. A bit like my digital frequency meter - rarely used, but when you need it you need it. A Christmas present to me from me - something I always wanted! :)

So start assembling!  :)

I found the difference in price compared to the first prod. run too big, however µRulers in 3 different colours was tempting.

Place your bets, final kickstarter funding amount...

Kicktraq says it's trending towards $34,245 but it's lagging a bit behind and basing that on data an hour ago.

What a missery.

Would have liked to found the Project and get one of those nice mCurrets, but Kickstarter doesn't want my Money.
On Pozible i payed happily via PayPal to get those nice Rulers but Kickstarter only acceps Kredit Cards. Don't have a Card...

Greetings
Janaha  :'(

I totally understand why you use Kickstarter. It is funded more, it is bigger. I would do the same. Only they look at non-english speaking countries, like they don't exist.

I have a lot of gear on my bench like that!
