We broke our Propeller propstick usb. As it is the only one we have, things have kind of slowed up until I can get a couple new ones ordered. Maybe we were too clumsy, maybe it was just not well built, but the surface mounted usb jack popped right off. We tried re-affixing it a few different ways, but to no avail. The chip will still be useful, but we just can't talk to it.
On a positive note we redid the cable situation. Unfortunately until we get the new propeller chip connector in the mail, we won't be able to test things out. We are so close to making big progress. This has been frustrating, hence the lack of posts.
