Well, here we are, supposedly in spring, but Mother Nature isn’t co-operating. We, like many parts of the world, are still having snow, cold temperatures, freezing rain, and basically unfriendly cycling weather. Brad is getting anxious to start cleaning the garage, but the backyard is still full of snow and mud spots, so hope the sun will shine all week long. Maybe we will actually have a nice spring after all? Let’s hope so, although last April we got several feet of snow dumped on us.
To cope with this seemingly long winter, we worked on and launched a new Support Forum and Atomic Zombie store. The new software are much more user friendly, organized and loaded with features. But, we were unable to import previous forum members and customers into the new database, so you must re-register (it takes seconds) on both systems. Sometimes old and new technology don’t get along.
The store doesn’t require that you log in to your customer account get your downloadable project links – you will receive them automatically in an email from the store once your payment is successfully processed. The entire ordering, checkout and download link receipt is quick and easy.
We are working on some issues with the second payment processor (hope to have it fixed this week), but for now, you can still pay with PayPal. You can pay with a credit card, and don’t need to have a PayPal account. If you aren’t a fan of PayPal, rest assured, you don’t have to become a member of that payment processor to pay for purchases.
Many projects on the Atomic Zombie To Do list, but have had to push up tentative release dates due to the late spring. Here’s what’s tentatively coming up this spring, summer and fall:
Marauder Reloaded (April)
Lode Runner Delta Trike (May)
Black Pearl Chopper (June)
Tandem Inline Delta Trike (July)
Tandem Electric Motorcycle (August)
HQ SWB Lowracer (September)
Winter Vehicle (October)
Bike, Scooter and Chopper Projects for the Evil Genius will be out some time in May. Keep checking the Support Forum for updates and announcements. This is a book, and we cannot offer it as a download, since the copyright is owned by McGraw-Hill.
We have had some problems getting a steady supply of Atomic Zombie’s Bicycle Builder’s Bonanza and 101 Spy Gadgets for the Evil Genius, so thanks for your patience while we work out supplier issues. Unfortunately, due to insane shipping costs and delays, we cannot ship books outside of Canada and USA at this time. We’re not a multinational conglomerate that can negotiate cheap shipping rates; just a Zombie, a Kat and a dawg!
Also, working on updating the Builder’s Gallery – sorry it’s taking so long. We decided to do some much needed home renovations that became a bit of a nightmare. Almost got the main stuff finished, so will finally have some uninterrupted time to sit here for hours to upload your latest creations. Great work, everyone! More amazing builds will be posted in the next week.
The latest Atomic Zombie newsletter is also online, www.atomiczombie.com/newsletter/april2008.htm.
Stay warm, friends.
