the mouser rep provided you incorrect information. circuitco has been 
shipping weekly to mouser.

when mouser receives a product such as the minnowmax, it is not 
allocated for one division or another, so if you have order from 
mouser-uk, it's still mouser.

the last 300 unit build went extremely well and the green light has been 
given to ramp up to the 1000 unit builds for the next 3 to 5 weeks.

the amount of pre-orders that were placed was completely unexpected and 
circuitco is pushing the schedule forward to meet the demand.
