Update.
The heat sinks showed up this afternoon. I will start packaging tomorrow. Some kits will go out tomorrow but I am leaving Friday for a couple of days. The rest will go out Monday and Tuesday.
Thanks to all of you for your patience.

Update.
Some packages went out today. I updated the list on the first page of this thread.
I cannot ship through paypal. They remove the shipping option after 90 days and I have to manually create the shipping labels so most of you won't get an email with the tracking number. 
I will be shipping the rest of the packages on Monday and Tuesday.

none of our business really, but im sure all our thoughts and prayers are with his family and himself.

No, if he doesn't want to broadcast any details of his situation, then we must respect his wishes, and merely keep him in our esteem without knowing.  Either way, I hope he will take heart from knowing we are both grateful to him and concerned for his well being.

All packages have been shipped except for 1. I lost a PCB and I am waiting for a replacement. Should be here in a couple of days.
I will update the list on the first page tomorrow when I get back home.

Thanks John. Received mine yesterday but I didn't see the extra free time to build them in the box.

Must have been out of stock. Is there an substitute part number for extra time?

Thanks again.

Tony

Got mine the other day, thanks.

Started to build today and found the the holes for the connector strip are to small for the connector to fit in, am I the only one having a problem?

I got mine last weekend and spent about 3 hours building it.  All seems to be working, except I didn't have a way to actually check DMX operation.  I need a pair of connectors for a wireless module.  Once I get those, I will finish the board, install it in a case, add the wireless module, and attach all the power connectors.  At that point I'll check the board for complete operation.

I'm a happy camper!

Oh, and BTW, rainlover, you sent me an extra 6-32 screw.  I feel rich.  Unless, of course, you want to send me $0.35 so I can put a stamp on an envelope and mail it back to you.   >:D

Are you sure?  They are a bit tight, for certain, but I got them to fit.  I had to tap on them a bit with a pair of pliers to get them to seat into the holes, but with a little care and persistence I got them to seat fully.  Don't hammer hard on them, though.  If you really whallop them, you risk breaking the connector or the board.  A few firm raps with the board solidly sitting squarely on the desk with the holes barely clear of the edge of the desk is all it took.
