Yeah and I ride a unicorn to work everyday.  There are about 2500 posts and years worth of info deadicated to this topic and still nothing has materialized.  I will believe when I see it! 

I have a work bench covered with shit that suggests otherwise ;)

Developing a quality product takes time.  And then transitioning those prototypes to production with a process that takes a reasonable amount of labor per unit also takes time.  Those hours and hours, and the cost to bootstrap it, all must be put in and paid by someone.   I don't like to think about the time I've spent sourcing components and putting together order on Mouser and the like.  And then someone needs to front the money for manufacturing.  Hopefully you don't screw up - or have a supplier issue - and get stuck with a bunch of hardware you can't use.  In the meantime, life goes on and you work on it when you can; hopefully finding large blocks of time.

I get it but this concept / idea / R+D whatever you want to call it has been going since 2/15/2006.  I know Rome was not built in a day.  I totally get life gets in the way, people drop in and out of the project, 6 years and 8 months is a long time to be developing this.  I guess I have gotten spoiled with the pace in which some other builders have made and brought to market from concept to product in a matter of months.  I am sure once this product hits many people will be happier than a dog with 2 dicks  :P...  I apologize for my ill concieved sarcasm.  OOK

Sure.  Though I've only been working on it seriously since Feb.

Wait, I thought taping was always in season? ???

Maybe I need to pack up my taping gear alongside my camping gear.
