Thanks Mike, will try again tonight. No fencing tonight, can try it as soon as I get home. 
Was definitely not pulling your new picture in. 
I even checked the timestamp when I downloaded, seemed to be the right thing.
Thought maybe it was keeping the old one, that's why I deleted everything and added in fresh.

cool
is Boston 5 hours behind UK (so it's 9:20 there now?)

what time you get home?
might try and stay up late to get this sorted!

Sounds about right, just after 10AM now.
Usually closer to 5:30, depending on traffic. Sometimes 5:15 if things go really smooth and I can catch a couple of green lights at the right place.  18mile drive, but only a couple of it on the highway - and that usually the slow part!

Looking good!
Now to figure out what that rotation angle was again ...

It was  your new file :)

Either that or I never really got rid of the old file, despite my best efforts.

way back you mentioned a USB that allowed you to connect the ground pads
did you ever find one?

I used USB-MINIB-5PIN (USB-MINIB) from the Sparkfun library

I have one on the board.  Will have to look to see which one it is.

I saw that you had one, but with ground pads floating
the one I mentioned in the Sparfun library allows you to connect them up

I will check it out, thanks for the tip.

What's the status on this board? Any news?
This... is a hobby.

Ahh, the pressure!
Things have been busy at work, its the end of the fencing season, so things have gone a little slow.
I have a quote for boards in hand. Have a parts list nearly complete to place an order for material.
I have an FCI socket and the battery holder now, graciously supplied by Skyjumper (whose board I have also been working on, he is making great progress in getting testing done and details worked for the enclosure - had to do a redesign to add a dual UART for more serial ports when he discovered software serial sucked up too much computing time - still, the 1284 and a dual uart are less than a quad uart equipped atmega).

So, should be back at it soon. Probably not tomorrow being Father's Day and all ...

Its my fault, I have been monopolizing all Crossroads' spare time :-( But on the plus side, we're sooooo close to done!

Happy father's day Bob!

No worries... I just don't wanna miss my chance of putting my hands on one of them. :)

I've been quietly assuming there would be some sort of announcement, asking for interest and/or orders before CrossRoads places his order for boards...
