  1. Brilliant design and what an attractive case:)

    I’m working on the new version. A small test of 10 new PCBs is on order. You can send me an email if you fancy one.

    I’ll post the complete details and a better description on how to order one once I have verified the new version. For the time being, an email should suffice.

    Greetings Bertho
