    ďIt canít be any worse than the best machine out there today....thatís a factĒ. If Iím understanding that statement correctly and it is meant to be interpreted at face value, thatís quite a statement. This is saying that this new ďmystery machineĒ will ID coins better in general than a CTX3030? Is this something thatís been tested/compared/confirmed? This is going to trump EVERYTHING out there? Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, I hope to see that one day. To ME, because it is SO far out there...Iím a complete skeptic, and as a ďscientifically mindedĒ person, itís hard for me to accept spoken word over the scientific process. I hope someone has stumbled upon the ďhidden keyĒ, itís just not likely with ALL of the electronics engineers and physicists already having had a crack at science as we know it.

    I prefer to hope for the best, cheer the guy on and have fun while Iím waiting. Itís none of my business how he wants to market/promote/ produce his machine.
    Frankly I donít care whoís going to test it /when/ if ...updates or not. Itís not like we never had to wait on something before in this hobby.

    If this machine turns out to be all that and a bag of chips, Im going to feel much better about myself knowing I cheered him on rather than trying to swallow my own foot because of impatience or skepticism.

    The proof is in the pudding ... we have to wait. It would be nice to see a machine that has it all... donít care how long it takes.

    As a matter of fact, take all the time you need to get it right.

    I wasn't talking about sales and frankly couldn't care less either whether or not you turn a profit or are profit driven, so feel free to ignore my comments on promotion opportunities, that was not the focus of my post.

    My point was that you have designated your TNET associates as "testers" yet they are not going to even get their hands on a unit to test until JUST BEFORE you have committed to production of over 1000 units (your statement). I may be dense, but when someone is designated as a tester, that means they are using the unit, presumably in a pre-production iteration, and then providing feedback, presumably to address technical issues or to suggest improvements that can be factored into the unit. How does that work if you are already locking down the design for mass production? Are your "Associates" merely reviewers then, just giving their thoughts about your delivered product for the benefit of future users or are they an integral part of the design team? I get that you can probably address some issues through firmware updates and the like, but sometimes the mechanical packaging or user interface is flawed and that affects the production line, so if you have to change that up, will that result in additional delays?

    As I stated previously, I don't want you to betray your IP, so that is why I am steering clear of asking about the unit itself and focusing on what you have said about how the machine will be brought to market and there just appear to be some inconsistencies and perhaps minor concerns from my vantage point that could hinder having a successful product roll out. That's my only concern. I don't really expect an answer at this point based your response MO regarding extreme secrecy, but if anything I am saying can help you think about potential flaws in your run up to production preventing delays, that's why I am putting it out there. I just want your game changing machine to be ready for prime time. Thanks and good luck.
    Thanks very much for your concerns. Try not to worry so much it's bad for the blood pressure, believe me I know There is a plan for everything but of course something could always go wrong, this is not my first rodeo except for the mass production piece which from where I stand is completely under control. Besides the punch list of production requirements there is also a rather long punch list of electronic tests and calibrations to be performed, they begin in days not months.

    We have a great team of dedicated people helping too, and if I am reading right, it sounds like you are asking about internal FT's (field testers) assignments. If individual FT's wish to discuss their assignments within the scope of the NDA's that is their business but assignment categories have not been chosen yet nor has individual responsibilities as internal testing will happen first. Test parameters for them have not been completely defined yet though much of the physical requirements (including durability & waterproofing) are set in stone after much debate.

    As internal testing is checked off, FT testing parameters will be completed and assigned. Our design methodology is such that ANY electronic change required that slips through initial testing can be done with relative ease up to and including plugging a part into a socket put there just in case for even 1000 units.

    Also, some of our FT's that possess various skills will receive pre-production machines based on need and the passing of AviTech internal requirements.

    Hope that helps with your question(s) though it sounds more like a labor union dispute to me. Read my signature

    PS: I think we have a contingency plan for every single piece of the machine, literally.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond in detail. We may be talking past each other a bit due to nomenclature of the internal FT's, which I take to be separate from your "in house" qualification testing team, but it sounds like you got the gist of what I was asking and have the potential concerns covered, so I'll let it go at that. Good luck, can't wait to see what your team comes up with.

    Thanks A2 - that means a lot. Giving back is a great thing and like I said - it can't be worse than what you can buy now.

    Update

    As promised - a periodic update. First let me say that I hope everyone is coping well with the current state of affairs and our prayers are with our country and in fact the world. We will get through this so hang tight and this will be over before you know it! I would add one more thing, we are fairing much better than other places in the world right now but more importantly, when the going gets tough the tough get going! When we needed to supply our guys with ammo on the front lines the elderly (that's me now ) and the women went to work in the homeland making munitions and helping to care for the country while those that were charged with battle did what they had to do about a century ago. We pull together regardless of all the diversionary tactics thrown at us normally - God Bless!


    As life would have it I am self quarantined in the lab away from family who are also self quarantined literally states away. Lab results will soon yield a prototype which our field testers will bang away on! Some suppliers are slow right now very much understandably, but things will pick up soon and since I am stuck in the lab - oh well!

    Stay safe, elbows only! We will ride this out and come out stronger than ever!!!!!!!!!
