I am cautiously hopeful…

SOLOSHOT’s Latest: 

It’s been an exciting week over at the SOLOSHOT production line! We are thrilled to announce that final production has kicked-off for SOLOSHOT3 Bases and Optic65 Cameras. Tags are in queue to begin next week, as well as Optic25 Cameras. We are literally jumping for joy at this huge milestone in a long journey, and can’t wait to share the SOLOSHOT3 clips we’ve been stacking with you next week.

Well, the wait is much shorter than it was…


44348269-1e6e-4242-b0b3-b3b92b217cb7Over the past month, the team has been putting the finishing touches on the manufacturing line and getting all the software ready for mass production! Significant End-of-Line test improvements have been implemented, and larger batches of SOLOSHOT3 + Optic65 Camera Bundles have been boxed up and shipped to the US for continued software validation across various activities.

They also say:

aadb8d31-e497-43b7-b4e5-8a1b8348995cMass production kick-off is now set for the week of May 9th.  The only change to the schedule shared in last month’s update is shifting the start date of the window for releasing the very first large batch of units from our California warehouse from May 15th to May 25th.

My estimated shipping date remains mid-June. Only those who ordered between September 15, & October 15, 2015, have and additional delay–10 days from May 15 to May 25, 2017–a very long wait for them.

Blogging ~ WordPress.Com–Theme Twenty Seventeen, 04/11

Twenty SeventeenFinally, we get the long awaited WordPress.Com Core Theme–Twenty Seventeen. In the past, Automattic [WP’s parent company] has released its core theme near mid-December. That was not the case for this theme. I’ve checked daily for it and today–HERE IT IS!

I activated it and had a few dislikes. I reverted to my current theme–Twenty Sixteen which I’ve modified a LOT using Cascading Style Sheet coding. I decided to give Twenty Seventeen another go. Using CSS, I had difficulty making my blog look as I want. There are features I like that are missing in the new theme. Plus, I would have had to ensure it shows the blog as I think it should be seen on mobile devices. That takes a lot of time. For me, Twenty Sixteen is not broken.

So, we continue where we were and maybe for a very long time. I like to keep my theme fresh. I will look for other CSS changes that may enhance the blogging experience.

Stay tuned…
