@johnyma22 That's great news! Is the 8 weeks for the Kevlar fiber, the blask plated rings, or both? Either way, it's definitely something to look forward to.

RE: Any updates on shipping?
@Lokki Why don't you post information from thes "queue" you've been talking about? Better yet, email me privately about the history of my own Kickstarter order. I'd like to know how many times it's been kicked back because or problems and where it is now in the queue. That would help me a lot more than a bunch of generalities.
Kickstarter Status Updates
Hi there. If you've been over to the comments thread on the Kickstarter project, then you realize how frustrated several of us have become about getting updates about the status of rings that have not been shipped yet. People have been begging us to stop using the comments and to discuss this on the forum, so I'd like to open up the discussion.
First of all, what is the current status of fulfillment? (number of rings shipped, number of rings still outstanding)
Second, what is the current status of The Collection? (number of collections shipped, number of collections outstanding)
Please feel free to answer any of these questions or add your own questions to the list.
RE: Unlock app improvements list
I requested using the tag ID for unlock months ago. It appears that others here agree. It would certainly solve the problem of overwriting actual message data when registering the tag for unlock. Does anyone have any idea if this is even being considered?
Unlock app only works with reset ring
I have been using the Unlock app with some tags I have while waiting for my rings to arrive. After locking myself out a few times and being forced to enter my secure password for my email account without the help of my password manager, I have managed to get what appears to be a stable configuration. I'm still having problems saving any sort of message on the tag though. Once I have updated the tag contents, it no longer works with the unlock app. If I unregister the tag and reregister it, the Unlock app clears the tag content during the unavoidable reset step. I don't understand why this has to be the case.
Does the Unlock app register the tag ID, the NDEF message(s) stored on the tag, or both? If it is using the Tag ID field, which cannot be altered, then it shouldn't matter what is stored in the NDEF message. That's the way a lot of access control systems work and I would suggest it would be the best way to manage one or more NFC rings. I'd really like to use my ring to store an NDEF message AND be able to unlock my phone.
The tags I've used so far have been NTAG209 and Mifare Classic. Some of my Mifare Classic tags can hold up to 8K. It would be wasteful to have a blank message on them.
The app itself is difficult to learn how to use. We're presented with a whole bunch of options with little explanation of how they work (or don't work) together. An app like this should have help screens to guide the novice user.
