09.11 - New boards / Projects page updated
« on: September 11, 2010, 07:21:05 PM »
The new projects page has been uploaded, along with the release of the five newly manufactured boards. I've tweaked the page into more of a category style, which I think helps organize things a little better. Also, I've added "archive" downloads that contains many of the older versions of the projects.

The five new boards available are for the Slambox, EgoDriver, Serendipity, Sabertooth and the Darkside. Each project has a new document with both the layouts for the fabbed boards, and for the single sided design. So, now you only need one document. A couple of the single sided designs were tweaked in minor ways, too.

Please let me know if you find anything that's broken. I think I've got everything tested, but I've been at this for a couple of days, so yeah...I'm a little burned :)

Love the new layout, my friend!  Nice to have the pedals organized according to function.  Well done!

And Safari 5 (on a mac). Much easier to find what you're looking for. Why is the thumper discontinued?

Thanks guys. I will get the remaining PCB artwork ASAP. I wasn't able to squeeze that in for today.

I discontinued the Thumper and Fallout only because I'm trying to get away from doing large, hand-made boards. In fact, this is the beginning of my transitioning out of hand-made stuff, altogether. It's time to grow the website and expand the horizon in terms of content. I want to have time to offer more ORIGINAL (and fun) projects that I hope will be innovative in some way. And also, I want to start working on the educational content, too. I have not been able to do these things due to the enormous amount of time it takes to make so many different boards. This week, I had my first day in 5 months with no outstanding orders....that's kinda stressful  ;D

So, you can expect many more new projects released directly as fabbed boards, and many of the older projects to transition to that over time. The Thumper will live on in that I will get the Slow Loris (1/2 of the Thumper) manufactured soon. The Snarkdoodle, too (1/2 of the Fallout).

AWESOME! I have been checking everyday and I didn't realize I had to refresh to see the new page.

If I place an order of all fabbed boards do they ship out faster than the handmade boards?

Mike, thanks! And, yes. They ship as fast as I can put them in an envelope and print up some postage  :)

Since I'm fairly caught up on orders everything will be shipping more quickly, as well.

Sorry, forgot to answer the first question. Mostly the images on the left dont look right. The images are all squished and oriented wrong. Maybe it's supposed to be like that, but I can read any of them other than compressor - I know what they are because I'm familiar with the projects.

I'm sorry, I don't want to criticise or anything, I just miss the old layout. It would be neat to be able to tell if it's new also, so perhaps a box on the left with the most recent additions would be nice. I only check it once in a while for new stuff, mostly I download the PDF for the projects I'm interested in and then work with those.

Jacob,

Thanks. I see that there is a bit of an overlapping issue in IE which will need to be fixed. I'll see if I can preview in Safari somehow, too.

I'm running an older system too, with an earlier version of Safari - version 4. I don't know if that makes a difference at all. I've not found many websites that don't work right though...

I have safari 5.02 for windows on this pc and it looks the same as the other browsers to me.  It must display differently in the older version.  I've seen that happen before.
