Well, my remaining controller just crapped out. I have no more controllers, alas.
[mention]Scouter3d[/mention] is your design at the point where you need beta testers? Otherwise I might need to look at building something EVIL as an interim. :-D

Hi Chesh,

i guess i will send my Layout (V1) to PCBWAY this week... a few days of shipping later i hope for a working PCB :0)
Then you are welcome to betatest :0)
We decided to go OpenSource, so i will post all the neccessary files, as soon as i find the time and the PCB is working :0)

Cheers, TOM:0)

Excellent work!
Let us all know how it goes :-D

I'm also interested in playing around with some "remix" ideas :-)

That's just amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I upgraded the resize to 1mb per file is that enough?
There is no "pixel size" limit actually...

Dear Luca! You are the best!

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

I thought there was a 800px limit... then it was just filesize that matters ;0)
