So it finally happened. WTPA is out! I officially dropped the marble at Bent 2009, which was a real blast. To come clean and be totally honest, I actually released WTPA on the Thursday before BENT to the list of faithful WTPA-heads who have been blowing up my inbox for the last few months. You know who you are, and you rule.
To continue to be honest, I have already gotten word back from the first (AFAICT) nerd to not only complete, but MOD WTPA — Mssr Pete Edwards of Casperelectronics. So get crackin.
There’s still plenty of stuff I need to deliver on this site: The operation manual and MIDI implementation chart, the Theory of Operation Manual, schematics and source. They’ll be here this week, at least some of them. I also, more physically, have to get all the orders I’ve gotten out the door. One piece of math I neglected to do: if I’m flying along stuffing parts bags at the rate of one every 5 minutes, and do not pee, sleep, or flip the record, it will take 17 straight hours to stuff 200 bags. Given that it took like One Million hours to get the program and hardware done for WTPA, this isn’t all that significant, but man, is it boring.
Then again, I suppose it’s no more boring than waiting on a whinging prima donna emedded systems nerd who’s too busy making a new prototype analog video synth extention for WTPA to get off his duff and SHIP ME MY ISH.
