It does exist - you have to go through google or some other website or type it in directly into the browser - it seems any links coming over from diyefi is banned....

WOW, just wow. That's some new level of madness the likes of which we have not seen before!

To fix that, you get a plugin for firefox that removes or changes the "referrer" to something else. It is just info passed on automatically by the browser to conform with the W3C standards.

Amazing.

if you wanna click the link without the referrer quickly, just open it in a new tab, then refresh the page using the green arrow on the address bar :)

Its been crazy on my end with all of the boards coming together at the same time (uS, sequencer, GPIO)... But the box is on its way to Lance as we speak....

- Bruce
This posted a few days ago, does this mean GPIO will be available soon? That would be cool to see :-)

I, the cynic, was WAY too optimistic about the GPIO, and the sequencer. Both of my dates are long passed. This puts my MS3 and router guesses into the realm of being totally unrealistic so I'll probably fail there too. This thread was an interesting experiment! At least I guessed realistically for the UMS and PWC :-)

Late breaking news... posted on the 29th, one day ago. We'll see how long it takes him now :-)

Fixed! :-) 2 full months and no boards shipped as far as I can tell. Not only that, but 7 months since Bruce said he had them being manufactured right now. ROFL.
