Hi Chris,

great to know, that it can be opened. :) As I sent the data to a manufacturer yesterday I will have to wait a few days.

Today I began to write a driver for fVDI. It's a bit more complicated as thought. But this is mainly because the simple functions make use of internal structs and variables which are yet unknown to me. Thus I have to dig more into (f)VDI and other parts of GEM.

What a surprise I had when I got home from work, there was a Kiwi hiding inside a box on my desk :o

Thanks Simon, and also for the additional extras. I shall be putting one of the Kiwi stickers in my car in the morning. I had forgotten how small a 30pin Simm was. Now I just need to wait for a few more parts to arrive from China.

Party On Dudes :lol:

You are welcome, Chris. :) Good to know, the first Kiwi reached his new eyrie. :D Then Matti should receive his soon.

Yeah, I have one of those stickers on my car. The answer to Apple stickers. :D I work hard to get all done for a small batch series of Kiwi kits. With SMT parts pre-soldered. Thus my rev. 2 prototype board will be reflow soldered this time. :)

Hope your parts will get to you soon.

Party on! :mrgreen:

Great! :) I still wait for my reflow oven. The controller arrived today. :)
But as I have vacation in the last two weeks of March, the soldering probably will have to wait another week.

Did you get solder stencils made for the board?
