How long has it been?

Okay... Let me start off this post by saying sorry to all our followers. This update was due for weeks. 

But the delay by no means imply that we were idle all this time. In fact, it's quite the contrary. We were really really busy.

So, let me update all of you about  what was going on within the last few weeks...

First of all, our circuit is working!!!!! and not just on a projection board, on a PCB!!!

Well, let me tell you about the journey so far. It was by no means easy. Creating a PCB is really really tough. You need to make one to understand for yourself. Well, perhaps it gets easier with time, you know, like most things in life, but at the moment, it is a really tough thing. Well, needless to say, we had to create more than one, in fact we created four separate PCBs.

Before creating anything though, we had to combine the two circuits together. The indicator and the charger. Afterwards, we used orcad to create the schematic and eventually the PCB print. This took a whole lot of time, but in the end, turned out to be just fine.

Soldering  was the fun part, well, let's call it fun... but still, it was a really good experience, even though, some of us got a few 'burning' memories to share with our kids someday...

Well, to put it in a nutshell, remember the post on the HUNT, well, within these few weeks, there were so many hunts... so many, in fact, I've lost count!

Well, to wrap up this post, I'll just mention what we need to do, before the 31st!!!

1. Presentation needs to be finalized

2. Casing needs more work!

3. Proof reading.

4. We need to do a talk time evaluation, if possible

5. Maybe we need to pray as well, not that we do, but still, I fear we'll be hammered at the final presentation, who knows, some might find it an enjoyable experience. 

Well, think this would work as an update, just... well, don't think an update before the 31st would be possible, but if possible, an update will be made on the 30th, just to let you know our progress so far.

Till then, cheers!
