New Shipping Service Coming

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

It’s not a secret how much I’ve been unhappy with USPS. Quite frankly, USPS has it’s benefits, it’s cheap, but it’s not reliable. International shipments are where things really fall apart. There are notices all over the website and customer emails, international shipments take anywhere from 3-8 weeks. Why? Because of customs. USPS first class has the lowest priority through customs, and it’s held up for weeks, sometimes 2 months. It’s not fair to customers, but I’ve been stuck between a rock and a hard place, until last week.

I’m partnering with DHL-Express E-Commerce where domestic reliability will triple. On top of that, International shipments will also dramatically improve. I’m told international shipments take anywhere from 4-8 days. We’ll see if we hit those marks when we enter into the program, however, I’m confident as I exclusively use DHL-Express for all distributor international shipments where speed and reliability is unmatched.

Rates should also decrease as well. Sounds to good to be true, we’ll find out if it is.

Been pretty busy fixing bugs and pushing updates.

It’s pretty important at this point to grab the latest version of the GUI and update your second generation flircs. I’ve fixed a number of bugs, as listed below

Firmware

  • Better NEC repeat support
  • fixes issue when host wakes from sleep (still needs work)

GUI

  • ability to show firmware differences between version_x and version_y.
  • NVIDIA Shield addition
  • XBOX remote should not have go button
  • New OS icons
  • fixed an issue with windows upgrades
  • fixed very rare occurrence of firmware getting stuck in the bootloader
  • disable advanced settings for gen2 devices, not supported yet
  • better support for semantic firmware versioning
  • better logging
  • support for loading gen1 configs on gen2 devices
  • lots of bug fixes

Updates are coming regularly. As soon as I solve the last firmware bug, which is the present on waking up from sleep, I should be on to the new features. Make sure you sign up to the news letter or follow us on twitter for announcement to those.

One more thing, Fuck Donald Trump, his corrupt cabinet, and every fucking republican defending him. They look incredibly stupid, keep doing it.

Happy Flirc’ing.
