Considering it is a work in progress and a device for the aficionado the really interested should have no problem paying before production starts.
Payment is rarely the problem in such cases, it's more of a stalled development process that no one can say will ever complete. Based on the pace so far, you have a good chance that it will be completed around the first quarter of 2023. :lol:

Quite funny. Please allow me quoting what I posted 9 days ago in another thread (similar calls were posted more than once since 2012):
CETERVM CENSEO: We should focus on getting the 43S ready. Who wants to support us is invited to apply.
And I acknowledge laughing is easier than working.

Hello,

Long time ago, I'd bricked my wp34s, so I'm interested to buy a DM based wp43s. You can count me.

Right, but don't worry: it's just the oracle has spoken. Again. :roll:

As I understood there are two separate issues.

1 - software development, sorry I am not proficient enough on the subject to usefully participate.
2 - hardware business case and funding, i am happy to pay for issue 2 if it helps to support development (issue 1), I guess many others will also

My proposal was only for issue 2 and if you want a complete calculator now just buy a DM42 of DM41.

It's quite obvious to me too.

Thanks for your good will, it's appreciated.

Our top priority problem (for Americans: challenge), however, is time for software. It is so throughout this project. Thus, whoever can devote time for writing software will be most appreciated. Right now, our software department consists of Martin and Friedrich working on the 43S in their spare time which is obviously less than 1 FTE (full time equivalent). This department can certainly take support. We will, however, never be able to pay anybody for programming - you can just earn fame in the community, though this for sure.

The other tasks (like project control, administration, documentation, etc.) are taken care of sufficiently so far.
