Adatesman, any plans to rip a few of the new ones apart?

No plans yet, as I have yet to see confirmation that this is actually true.

Please don't shatter our illusions all over again, man. If Fixe says they're good let's all just accept it, okay? All I care about is if they still feel like Aliens.

Give what a rest, exactly? Empicard asked me a question and all I did was answer him. I have no plans to do anything with them other than possibly fondling them (read: I'm more than happy to put this mess far, far behind me). Now had I responded to the Barrabes report by posting results from the 30+ Aliens and Alien Hybrids I've had sitting here collecting dust, sure, I could see that as cause for telling me to drop it. But as I've said repeatedly, I'm long done with this mess and out of respect for Dave's passing and Nadia's attempts at selling the company I won't be sharing those results.

BTW, as far as I've seen the Barrabes report is the only thing saying Fixe will be making them. And given that there's been no confirmation from Fixe and a very reliable source had told me that they'd be coming from BD, I'm not convinced by the unsubstantiated Barrabes report. And FWIW, my whole problem was lack of QC and process control at CCH, so provided the design is picked up by a company with a history of quality product I don't see a reason to worry about it.

Looks like Fixe is working on updating their site as I type this. The pic and link is there, on their front page, but the detailed listing is not up yet:
