Sometimes you actually need to relax with a beer in your hand on the couch. You'll come back to the solder station when you're ready.

Great stuff. Looks like a high tech witchcraft device.

I'd be down for a few if they were not powder-coated (I like to etch), and if shipping stateside is not too crzy

I think this is the proper way to do it:

I've been keeping an eye out for a good homebuilt alternative for quite some time.

One more vote of confidence for going the vibramate route. It's good stuff.

Maybe I'm alone, but I'm not that worked up about it.

It seems that most of the complaints involve things that at worst relate to a cultural difference with the way intellectual property is regarded. The faux paux of calling things by their actual names, has more to do with our copyright law than morality. What's the moral difference between calling something a 'fuzz factory' and a 'lint fabrication establishment'?

It's nice to give diy designers credit, and is certainly something we should all do--but we have a very nuanced understanding of our own hobby. In their view, credit might exist through using the real name. I could see someone in a very hard-scrabble dog eat dog business environment, scratching their head at why it is ok to use a ocd board without licensing, etc, but it's not for a Ruby amp, to attribute Run off groove, but not Mike Fuller, etc.

To be frank, the Asian understanding of intellectual property (minus the lack of attribution), is closer to the DIY ethos than is often acknowledged.
As for Tayda part quality--in my experience; hit or miss. At the same time the low cost has allowed me to complete a few circuits, I wouldn't have otherwise done. Shipping has been fair, the orders fulfilled as or more accurately than other joints.

Just my opinion.

Now you're talking as long as it's not $25.00. If it is, I need guarantees.
1. Wife will be naked 24 / 7
2. No more debugging
3. 2 words....Rock god

None of those things can be ruled out as a possibility. For sure, none of those will happen  if you don't get the shirt. (maybe rock god, just for a little while).

Well based on that alone, 2014 is going to be an excellent year.

Plus Franz Ferdinand's reanimated corpse approves, so what more could a lad ask for?

I think the silver face of the first knobs are a better match for the enclosure, so I'll vote first too.
