Back to the plot...

I am told they should be here on Monday. So hopefully I will be able start testing them shortly after.. Assuming they are actually the right parts it is always a concern..

There is also a possibility I may have found a source for another "interesting" chip.. But I don't want to say more about it at this time.

These will be heading to stock soon.. Unfortunately I have ran out of stickers :( as there is only about 10 glitters left I probably won't bother the more made.

So this is a side which may never be seen again in history...

So a nice top shot...

Now in stock. I'm sorry about the high price though these were very expensive to obtain.

As mentioned before, these are likely the last stocks.. I will keep on looking, though it has taken me about two years to stumble upon the ones I have now, so I do not see me finding any more in the future.

I think the price is fine, all things considered.

Hopefully you'll have a couple left next week when I get paid
