It's been a little over half a year since my last progress here. I wish I hadn't taken this break from my hobbies, but at the end of last year a good friend of mine went into a coma and then passed away. It's been a struggle to just go through the motions for a while. 

I'm back now though. Hopefully we'll get Clunke sorted and to a usable state soon.

Finally got around to donating the HaD prize money from last year (should have just done it immediately, I know):

Printing PET-G is still holding me up, so I'm going back to PLA for now, and have ordered a new, nicer 3D Printer that should arrive later this summer. I'll try printing PET-G again on it. In the mean time, I've started printing parts from the Low Cost AT Kit to offer, as well as begun making a test run of LipSyncs. I've followed Neil Squire's email list for a time now and am a huge fan of what they're doing with the MakersMakingChange project, so it's exciting to be making some items from their catalog.

I think that's it for now. I haven't worked up the nerve to try getting back in contact with UCP, but I'll try to send them an email sometime soon.
