    You'll have excellent support.

    Any update on this project? I was busy this weekend, but may be able to come up tomorrow to catch the last day of VCF.

    Just got home from VCF East with my 8085 singleboard Glitchworks computer. very nice board indeed.

    Thanks for making them available at such a reasonable price.

    Cheers!

    It's a gorgeous kit; I can't wait to put mine together.

    Glad everyone seemed to enjoy building this little kit! Everyone who built one at the show left with a fully functional board Full writeup, schematics, source code to follow -- I just have to find the time to finish writing it up and do a manual.

    I look forward to it! I sprung for the bare board, so the scavenger hunt for parts I don't have on hand is already underway.

    This is going to be fun -- glitchbus in particular is relevant to my interests.

    Yeah, I need to get some sort of little Interfacing to Glitchbus document put together, too.

    I wasn’t able to get up to the show. Are there any kits or boards remaining?

    There's a handful of VCF XIII Special Edition boards left, I don't currently have any parts kits but I can order another round of parts for them. There won't be any further production of the special edition boards, but there will be a similar SBC available when the special edition boards are all used up, in addition to other Glitchbus boards.
