I’ll start out with the juicy stuff. If you head over to the main flirc website, the buy link has been replaced with ‘store‘. It’s no coincidence that flirc has been extremely popular in the raspberry pi community. So it only made sense to help customers by giving them the convenience of purchasing the raspberry pi and it’s accessories at flirc. However, if purchased together, there is a 4.00 savings off the order. That’s awesome!
New Support Site
I’ve also added a new support website. I’ve decided to go with zendesk which will be populated with as much information as possible to help solve common issues. If you had recently emailed me in the past, my response time was hit or miss. As Flirc has grown, so has my responsibilities. I do this on the side of a full time job, and I’m a new father. It’s getting extremely tough, so I’m redirecting support questions to a knowledge base which will most likely answer your question. If not, there are the forums, and then me. I’ve been pretty active on the forums, but I can’t keep up with the sheer volume of emails that hit my inbox. Nearly all of them are easily answered somewhere on the site. I’m just making them easier to find.
Okay, so the theme for today’s post is the raspberry pi. I’ve got some exciting stuff coming out for that, it’s going to make some waves. More updates soon.
I finished a new bootloader that will be shipping on newly shipped devices, more details on why tomorrow.
