  1. Guess this means I should write up the remaining parts of the process eh? There’s lots of fun & games going on with parts placement that I need to cover. http://blog.omegacs.net/2011/06/07/fully-assembled-anyseistm-boards/ has pics of the assembled boards back from Screaming Circuits.

    Thanks to this walkthrough I now see a lot of wasted star-shaped breakout boards between the actual boards. 😉

    Awesome!
