A short update on the mouSTer project 🙂
A lot going on lately and not only with mouSTer. Which is good and not boring 😀
As you’ve already noticed, the mouSTer is out of stock for nearly four weeks. Everything that could go wrong … went wrong. First, we’ve had issues with orders from Mouser electronics which is located in Texas. Due to the snowstorm, everything was slowed down including postage services. Later, some other ordered parts were stuck in Belgium customs. Then we had issues with PCBs and the list goes on and on. However, finally, I’ve received the first part of a large batch. Fortunately, the assembly plant is located nearby so I can go there every day and pick up a part of the whole order of still warm mouSTers so I can start shipping 🙂
I will be putting it back in stock shortly after this post goes online.
Official retrohax re-seller on eBay
Here is a link to retrohax.net’s official eBay re-seller. It is run by our friend who also has more retro goodness. Yes, we are aware that prices are higher but please note that eBay and PayPal are not there for charity and they charge quite a lot. Also, there are very good shipping options through this store and other solutions that some people choose eBay over this website.
Some of you may have noticed and signed up for an in-stock notifier. I have an in-stock notifier list displayed in front of me now and I already know it is going to be heavy package lifting as there are tons of orders to process. SO PLEASE don’t shoot emails at me if there are one or two days of delay as I am processing shipping single-handedly. I will do my best to process shipping as quickly as possible but I need to sleep too 😉
There was one, but major firmware update since the last post and another update is going to be released soon with even more cool stuff.

This time we were surprised by a YT video that was released by Steven Combs.
Turns out that Steven tested the mouSTer with MEGA65!!! How cool is that?!
Have a look at his channel and this review of the MEGA65 project is a pure awesomesauce!!
