Re: Arch Linux USB Keys

I might be being persnickety, but what brand are the original flash drives? I'm actually in the market for a new USB drive, and I'll see about getting one of these if I can.

Where did you find this information? I can't seem to find it anywhere but here.

and, for what it's worth, I take pride in my vocabulary.

Re: Arch Linux USB Keys

I'd be in the market for an 8GB one, or maybe two 4GB ones.

Re: Arch Linux USB Keys

I have a neverending dilemma when buying things online: 1) Is it possible to ship it to Sweden, 2) How much more will it cost to get it shipped to Sweden (Are $5 enough?) and 3) How much longer will it take?

He ships to Sweden, I've ordered one of the 8 GB ones and was $45.50 + $5 shipping.

Er... it should have been $45.50 including shipping; did I get confused and overcharge?

Its $40.50 + shipping for the preorder price which ends today. Tomorrow it goes up to $45.00 + shipping. After Simo has shipped the first few keys I may increase or decrease the shipping price if my initial estimate seems to be too high or low.

Re: Arch Linux USB Keys

Hmm. I would really love one. Just thought the design of the pen itself was not that good. Would we eventually see another design?

I really don't know; they are a huge initial investment for me, so it depends how quickly these ones sell. If there seems to be a lot of interest I may get more in the future. We've sold about a quarter of the first batch; unless sales *really* pick up I doubt I would buy more stock until at least a year has passed.

Re: Arch Linux USB Keys

Then I guess I have to order one now, and when new versions arrive, order them as well.
