Some parts ordered and sent off to be assembled

The rev 2 PCB's themselves will be done within a few days. I've also ordered assembly services from the company who made the PCBs for some of the surface mount IC's. This means that they will place 9 of the ICs that would be very difficult (or impossible) to hand solder. The rest of the components will be hand solder-able.

At this point, it looks like each prototype board with those 9 parts already placed will cost between $80-$90 and that is before buying the remaining parts. As for the remaining parts, I will publish a Bill of Materials and people can order what they want from the list (not all parts will be required so people will be able to save some money if they are only interested in a subset of the board's functionality).
