The latest from CNN:

The original cable supplier (you know, the one that kissed me off as "small
potatoes") has
had a change of heart. Meaning, he needs $$$.

So, I just faxed over a $1400 order for wire/coax. He says that the wire
needed for the '420s
will be here Monday.

∗ASSUMING∗ he is correct:

a) I can ship the "coax-less" kits this Thursday, meaning that chances are
they arrive Sat.
and you be squeaking Sat PM

b) I can ship full kits Tuesday - Friday of next week (I have 62 on order!

SO: for those of you that sent me email saying you want the kits now, UNLESS
I hear differently
out they go Thursday. Taking manual to printers tomorrow AM.

Sorry for the delays: I just did 4 18hr days debugging 20,000 Xilinx gates
in Verilog for the TI DSP
project. I deliver 3 prototype tomorrow. So, hopefully THAT'S overwith until
late July when the #2 DSP
hits. least I can fund MOTM ∗all year now∗!

On the ∗down∗ side: ZERO relief on getting the pots in sooner for the '320
and '410. So, these are BOTH
delayed until 2nd week of August unless I get ∗very∗ lucky. I will layout
the '410 pcb next week and also send
the front panels to the machine shop in case matters improve (doubtful).
