For the past 2 weeks, I have been working myself ragged building what I have now called Switchzilla. Here's what I have accomplished so far.
Stage I. I had to do this 64 times.
Stage II, again 64 times.
Stage III, yup. 64 more times.
All hand soldered. Yes, it took a long time to do this.
Now that we have what clear what I've been up to. Stage IV will be mount the above work to the main board. Stage V will be to sandblast, paint, and prep the enclosure for stage VI, which is to attach switches and connectors to said enclosure. Stage VII will be testing and debugging. And hopefully I should be finished this thing by mid to late march.
