If you're sure Ian, that would be great - I'll happily bung freebie cables in with each one.
I had a small fraction of this pile download/file.php?id=41806&mode=view
(I think that picture was after lots had already been taken).

I'm never likely to use them all. I'll stick 30 in an envelope and leave it in the car, remind me of your address and I'll put them through your door next time I'm in the area.

Late to the party as ever, please put me down for one and a VFS, please. (If you do another run, that is...)

Hello, parts are now on order - I'm just waiting to hear back from everyone above the line to finalise, if I don't then I'll start moving down the list.

Everyone above the line's paid now. Most parts have appeared, just waiting on the resistor packs and the 74AHC125Ss which should turn up today. PCBs have been cleaned down so with a fair wind behind me I should be able to make a start on these this evening.

Best,
Daniel

20 CPLDs later... I think I can safely say I'm not going to have the stomach to do any more of these after this batch for quite a while...

Thanks Paul - I note that my eyes are somewhat less forgiving than they were 12 months ago!

Got one :? - it's the focussing through that, then not that's the absolute git... (these are just standard two layer boards)

Four completely put together now. Two of those misbehaving. One, I think I know why, the other is going to take a bit longer as I've exhausted the obvious...

A bit frustrating when that happens, but huge credit to you for taking on this task with so many very tricky SMD components to install. I don't know how you manage it. I struggle with anything more complicated than standard thru hole stuff!!! Eye sight isn't what it used to be!

And they're all made and tested. Just cables to make. I will try and get them sent out the first half of next week!

Just to say that all the cables are made and i'm in the process of getting everything boxed up and organised (inbetwixt dealing with the kidlings on school holidays). I should have everything sorted and ready to go tomorrow.. But it's good friday. I strongly suspect I will get it all in the post next Tuesday as I don't see logistically how I'm going to manage the post office on Saturday :( Apologies.

Obviously, anyone who wants to collect at Wakefield is welcome to and I'll refund the postage!

I’ll grab mine at Wakefield if that’s easier. No problem.

And postage buys you a beer!
