  • Do repairs

 

New routine

6 december 2020

As you may have read in the underneath post, I’ve taken on a fulltime job again.
I’ve been doing my new job for three weeks now, and I’ve been working hard to find a new routine.
I know it has taken too long, but am now once again back on repairs and production – during the workweek in the morning and afternoon mainly, and more in the weekend.
So ByteDelight unfortunately gets a little less time, but still has my dedication!
Check out my live streams every week!

One other reason that it took some longer to continue work for ByteDelight, is that in the last week of November, my son was diagnosed with diabetes type 1 – the type that strikes without a cause, and potentially on any age.
So that is quite a change, but we’re doing relatively well now.

ByteDelight and being employed

21 October 2020

Because of the worldwide pandemic and economic impact, people are starting to get more careful what to spend their money on, which is totally understandable.
Then also Brexit is around the corner.
This is making doing ByteDelight for a living a lot harder in the near future.

So in October 2020 I’ve decided to take an software development  job for a stable financial basis for my family.
I will start with that job during November.

But don’t worry – ByteDelight will continue!
However, first I need to process all open orders, repairs and other custom requests – preferable before I start at the new job.
So many products are ‘out of stock’ to achieve that.
After that’s done, I will produce batches of products which I will offer by raising the stock levels again when the products are actually available.
