I've spent a little on the motor and you could argue that having a 3D printer might forever factor into your projects.. but since my moob removal surgery (if I just say surgery people ask anyway) I wasn't up to my tinkering game and wasn't working on this. It feels dishonest not to share this and I've made sure an awesome project, the #ZeroPhone - a Raspberry Pi smartphone  from this platform got the money instead. @Arsenijs lives for that project and that dedication is what I envy and sometimes lack with my projects. Hope that levels some karma :D

Thank you for your help! It's a tough time right now - I'm buying parts, assembling and shipping things, and it's the exact moment when expected and unexpected expenses crop up. Just had to order a panel with fixes and lacking PCBs, with DHL shipping to make sure it gets here ASAP, as well as a batch of audio jacks, TI amplifiers (that I put on the board for some godforsaken reason) and FETs - your donation helped immensely in making sure the crowdfunding happens as soon as possible!

I wish I were as dedicated for ZP as you think =) I have plenty of problems - depression, procrastination, other health issues that crop up all the time for some reason, and it's all quite distracting. I stay on ZP because I believe in it, and I still have a chance to work on it - until I'm financially forced to settle into a job and lose whatever productive time I have remaining in a day, not making change I believe should be made. So, I'm trying to do my best every day - and thank you for your immense help!

Last but not least, I wish you a speedy recovery! And, just in case - recovery tends to be unproductive, that's normal. So, make sure you don't blame yourself for inaction or something like that - your health is important. Will be patiently waiting for new YouTube videos and worklogs =)
