The shop is now closed since we cannot manage shipping single orders (a lot of practical things broke due to the bankruptcy, such as our deal with the shipping agent), but there is still 100+ B3 (no wifi, no disk) in stock, and the bankruptcy administrator is eager to get them sold. So email me with a bid if you are interested. Preferrably higher quantities, or he may not bother..
Crap, and here I was set to order another one... Would it be possible to order a single one, and pick it up in person, as I'm local?

Sorry, not at this stage. If the entire stock doesn't get sold soon it will move on to some auctioning firm who might be able to sell singles. I'll keep you posted on progress.

I suppose that was the case to keep down the administration and feel free to post the details.

No it's because when in bankruptcy you do not have ownership over anything anymore. The stock of B3s is now the property of the liquidator. (well it sort of boils down to that, the reality is more complex).

Not the exact amount, but 140-ish.

I guess if I would like to buy 3-5 units, it's still to small amount to be intressting?

Thanks

How much money is needed to buy the whole stock of b3 ?

As many of us I am interested in getting one or two (this hardware box is really nice and have no equivalent on the market) but can not afford to buy them all. So maybe we can start some kind of short crowdfunding campaign in order to buy them all.

Just let us know if there's any way to buy ourselves more b3s.

Commiserations on the bankruptcy. I hope everyone finds new jobs easily (preferably better paying and more fun).

As ever, procrastination is the thief of time: I had decided to buy a couple more B3s, but not got around to it, so now I have to hope that sales from Canada will start soon!

I really hope this is just a road-hump on the highway, and not a dead-end. Low-power, quiet, efficient and effective home servers seem like a brilliant idea.

I was hoping that the media player would become freely available - the hardware looked excellent, and I would probably have bought two or three or four - ah well.
