The PCBs for v0.2 should be waiting for me on my doorstep when I get home tonight. The components and stencil arrived last week, so tonight I'll be baking boards.

I'm so excited that I spent my lunch break pricing larger volume builds for fun. For a build of 100 I can get the price to ~$4/board in components and PCB. Assembly time/cost, QA, shipping, solder paste, and NRE aren't included, so finished boards would be significantly more.

Progress on the browser based programmer is slow. I scrapped my Firefox + FireBreath proof-of-concept after finding out that the NPAPI standard the FireBreath based plugin relies on is deprecated due to security risk. Now I'm trying to find my way around developing a Chrome app, which has the advantage of being driverless and plugin-less on all platforms. Nothing to show for it now, and certainly not while I've got boards to build.

Awesome, look forward to the finished boards!
