PFAQ (Predicted FAQ)
Q) Why is there a picture of a cheese sandwich on screen at the beginning?
A) A cheese sandwich indicates that this is a quickly-assembled video with few frills. There might be the odd dodgy edit and/or sound glitch. Sites (including, but not limited to Amazon US/UK/DE/ES/FR/NL/IT/CAN)
Q) Why are there comments from a week ago when this video has just gone live today?
A) Patrons usually have early access to videos. I'll show the first version of a video on Patreon and often the feedback I get results in a video going through further revisions to improve it. e.g. Fix audio issues, clarify points, add extra footage or cut extraneous things out. The video that goes live on youtube is the final version.

  • Why, why, why the hell would they use IPS displays on this, instead of OLED?

  • Ebay seller update. I did receive my clock from seller cybereveryday. They did indeed send two packages. They just failed to tell me and others they were sending two packages. So it seems that cybereveryday is a legitimate seller. I would assume the other sellers with negative feedback about receiving tassels are probably legit too.

  • Be aware there are several ebay sellers of this clock sending tassels instead of the clock. Probably the same seller with different accounts. thefineshop topcyberday cybereveryday are a few i found with the same negative feedback about receiving a tassel. Maybe more out there. I got scammed by cybereveryday. Trying to get my money back as we speak. If anyone knows a reputable seller of this clock it would be appreciated.

    • @Simon Stroud I received my clock from cybereveryday. I recommended that they notify buyers of the two packages before they receive a tassel and think they got scammed.

      gurbymurblegurbymurbleVor 7 Tage
    • @Simon Stroud I also got a second tracking number from cybereveryday with the same message about small gift. The tracking says it arrives today. A lot of confusion could have been avoided if they had simply communicated. Still would have seemed suspect. I will update if I get my clock today.

      gurbymurblegurbymurbleVor 7 Tage
    • @Peter Curd The seller has been in touch and says that was just a small gift and that the actual item is still on its way - they also provided a new tracking number (tracked via a totally different website). Will await further devlopments. In the meantime, I ordered another one (quite a bit cheaper) from Banggood, which is also apparently on its way. I did open a return with Ebay so I think there is plenty of time to get them to sort it out if it does turn out to be a scam. Good luck!

  • Maybe I'm crazy but I'm pretty sure I saw an ESP32 module in there...which means all the things it can't do, you can almost certainly make it do. Bluetooth, wifi, whatever you can get an ESP32 to do. It's supported by the Arduino environment too so it's fairly easy to get started with it. Incredibly powerful little chip.

  • When I built my Nixie clock 3 or 4 years ago the IN 8-2 tubes were about $10 each. My son broke a tube and I could not believe the prices have almost tripled. This clock won't have the same wow factor when people first see it, but it comes close.
