thats still good news.. the fact that you said you have not abondoned it because other factors have taken over :)

Anywho.. winter is coming and usually for a lot of us that means a little more time.. so maybe you will get back to it then.

It's not abandoned :)
I'm actually working on manually routing most of the new PCB, which takes time. And will try to get them partially assembled so that I don't lose time on this (for the SMD, I'll do the through hole myself as there are not a lot of them) even though I have a reflow oven.. to time consuming.

rpineau, if you are confident it is at a usable stage of the development. I would be willing to buy in for one or two boards if that would help reduce your cost to get pre-assembly done. Through hole stuff I can also do myself no issues. This is assuming the plan is still to get TT ram add-on this .. as first for me is the Ram to allow me to run Multi tasking with desktop etc.. or Mint. then of course faster is better. Let me know.

The board is still not done routing and then the CPLD code to manage interrupt need to be added. So nothing is in a shape that can be build right now, at least with the current version.
Atl-Ram is in the plan and I have already routed the board(s) for this.. but we need the main board before anything else can be tested.
