Woke up this morning and wondered where those new kit orders suddenly came from. It turned out that right at that moment Dave Jones was building a board in a Youtube live stream with many hundreds of viewers looking on. I caught the last half hour or so. I couldn't stand the suspense when he was searching for a cable. He didn't use the manual, skipped all tests, still it worked 1st time. "This is disappointing, there is nothing to troubleshoot!". Greatest compliment ever! THANK YOU

Edit: the live soldering turned out to be a prelude to more to come. The Gigatron is now honoured with an official EEVblog episode! We’re truly and utterly flattered.
