International Shipping Delays

Hello everyone, sorry for the lack of update, it became apparent an update was necessary upon discovering the international backers had not been sent their boards. After the initial shipments I had rested easy assuming the hard part was over, unfortunately there has been some unexpected export controls compliance required of Crowd Supply that, unfortunately, is taking much more time to get through the regulatory bodies than expected. I had waited a bit after finding this out, assuming (as everyone was) that the paperwork would be done on short order and the boards would be shipping out with minimal delay.

Now that such a time has passed, I want to make sure no one is feeling left out of the loop, the expectation is that the process should be completed soon and orders will begin shipping for all the international backers. Crowd Supply is working hard on the issue, but of course regulators operate on their own time tables, and undoubtedly Thanksgiving here in the Untied States caused some additional delay that would not otherwise have been in play.

As always, I am thankful for your support and now equally thankful for your patience.
