Here’s a cheap & cheerful (or in the American vernacular, crappy) panorama that I just did with the open source Hugin software package. Yes, there are some obviously bad stitches, but it gives you an idea of what my newly updated shack looks like. I added the KADA 852D+ rework station, upgraded the shack PC, and got a shiny new 24″ TV/monitor. Wish I had more free time to play with Hugin, as I love panorama images.
On the “Project X” front, progress is continuing. The firmware is just getting going, but as soon as I have a barebones firmware, I’m going to send out for my first PCBs for beta testing. Hopefully that will be within about two weeks. Please feel free to send along any questions or suggestions in the comments below!
