...since i posted here. Not so much for want of updating so much as I've had a number of my physical projects not work. I refer of course to my pursuit of completing my monome controller (www.monome.org) first.
It seems the fault may be corrected soon but the real bane is or has been the wiring and buttons for the keypad. As soon as I'm paid now for some written commercial treatments i've recently done then I can buy the sparkfun solution for my monomes.
Currently, we continue waiting...sigh
