I was trying to get some information on buying an Applesauce FD controller. I've had no luck in this endeavor and I thought maybe someone on this forum could shed some light on it. The project was definitely active as of a couple months ago.
Basically if you go to the main web site https://applesaucefdc.com it talks about the project being active with a new software release as of September 6. There is also a teardown and review video. But there is no where on their web site to place an order. There is a search feature on their web site, and I tried searching for "order", and the search results had a pre-order web page with a form. However, on this hidden pre-order form, there is a required field for "Order Code from the email you received from us". Obviously, I have no such "order code" since when I attempt to email them, I never receive a response.
Applesauce also has a facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/5251478676/permalink/10157597145223677. Here they talk about taking pre-orders as of June 6 by emailing email@example.com. I tried sending an email to place a pre-order, but received no response.
You can also go to the wiki that ReactiveMicro hosts at https://wiki.reactivemicro.com/Applesauce. Here it talks about ReactiveMicro being an authorized Applesauce service provider, where they offer to ship refurbished Apple II drives with the Applesauce controller. However, I emailed Henry and he replied saying that they don't sell Applesauce.
So I guess the project is dead? Or it's an impenetrable secret society? Can anyone confirm?
