My guess is that most of the 130 people who've committed would be prepared to do the same, which would be a powerful incentive for someone to take on the project.
Totally agree. I'd be happy to wait if there was any chance that the LX500 could be finished.

Does anybody know how close it was? There have been very few updates over the last couple of years

ARHPG - I'd opine that LinearX will not be the only such company - essentially one man operation - from which we hear similar new over the next few years.

Why not try & copy the data/files etc, from the linearx dongle onto a USB stick for eg ? Might be worth a try, especially as USB sticks are cheap. Plus i doubt if you would need a large capacity one.


Sad & bad news about his death. I don't have any of his gear, but i hope someone can take over the business etc for the sake of others. As at least one LX500 exists @ LinearX, plus i expect circuit diagrams & PCB's etc as well, it should be possible to duplicate them.

WOW! This is very sad news. I did not know Chris nor his family, but I recently acquired a used copy of LEAP (and dongle) and have just begun unraveling the mysteries that this software hides. My deepest condolences to the family as I am sure this is a very troubling time.

I am wondering if anyone from Physical Lab, or any members here, are willing to provide informal tech support for LEAP users...? I'm having some configuration issues and could use some troubleshooting help. Please message me if you have intimate knowledge of the software.

If you have problems with LEAP you can contact us and we will try to help you. The company is not sold yet so I have no news. As you know such things need some time...

Considering the circumstances, the Moderators feel those who are concerned about business dealings should do that elsewhere. This is a thread about someone's passing.

Thank you for your understanding.
