>>Remind me how wonderful a 80 resistor ∗L F O ∗ is again....<<

My thumbs got sore just doing the lead bending for my two LFOs. Not to
mention the amount of wasted time it takes to bend resister leads one at a
time for 10 modules at once. Isn't there some kind of device I can just drop
the resisters in, turn a crank and have it spit out resisters all nice and
ready to insert? I have seen in the past, resisters that are pre-bent. Why
doesn't Synthtech use those?

>>...while I soak in a salt bath and dream of high-powered model rocketry:<<

Is it just me, or do others think Paul has too many side interests. As
customers, I think we should demand his attention be paid to Synthtech 24
hours and day, 7 days a week. Or at least until he gets the damn Mixer
module done ! :)

BTW, something I wanted to do years ago was develop some kind of guidance
system for a model rocket and write the software to guide it. But I have
heard that it is illegal to put a guidance system into model rockets. That
kind of takes the fun out of rocketry.
