Firefox defect found in Dexter

I've confirmed that the publicly available firmware for Dexter does contain a defect where the audio will be squelched for 1 field every time Firefox performs a skip.  I'm currently working with testers to validate that my fix actually works before I release this to the public.  Update will be available via Dexter Manager.  If you have Firefox and Dexter, you will want to get this :)

Dexter power supply problem found

I am sorry to report that we have discovered a problem with some of the power supplies which I have shipped out with Dexter.

They look like this:

The symptoms include a buzzing hum heard over the game speakers and possible lock-ups of Dexter itself where the system needs to be restarted.

Here are two replacement power supplies that I've tested and verified work much better:

This one by imbaprice and this one by TICTID.

Dexter shipping estimator is live!

Wanna know whether your order has shipped, or when it will ship?  I've finished the shipping calculator tool that I've been working on.  It isn't much, but it works, and it is pretty accurate.

Again, I ship in the order that I received payment.  At my current velocity, I will have all orders shipped out by August.  Ouch!  I will be trying to increase my weekly average to improve this number, but I believe in giving people real estimates, not telling them what they want to hear.

Update on Dexter shipping

I've begun shipping out Dexter packages and some people have reported receiving them.  I have been working on a web app that will dynamically calculate when you should receive your order which I had hoped to finish today, but I had some family/personal problems come up which demanded urgent attention.  I should have this app ready within a day or two (or else I'll have another update here).
