Quick Updates

  • We're moving to a bigger warehouse! For the time being we're limiting shipping to Monday, Wednesday and Friday so that we have ample time to pack things up and move them to the new place.
  • Customer Service (Sebastiaan) will be recharging his batteries from September 5th until September 17th. Any issues that you need to have resolved, should be addressed before that time. Shipping will mostly continue without delay.
  • Bobas and GTMX: As some of you may have read we're no longer an official reseller of Gazzew switches. Therefore we will not be restocking Boba or GTMX switches. We still have a very limited amount of leftover stock which we're reserving for sale at a later date. We have a number of different switches from different manufacturers coming in to replace and improve on these switches. More news on that soon =)
  • The Fnords program has been suspended. We're looking into bringing it back in the future as a more thoughtfully implemented system.

Alright, time to pack "only the essentials!"
