Finished testing the first articles from our manufacturing partner and they look good to go.  We're giving the go-ahead to build the remainder of the boards.  I also finished regressing the firmware and have loaded V1.0 onto the programmer for connection to the manufacturing test fixture to program each board.  There are over 7000 lines of C code (and even more headers) in the PIC micro-controller on the Pi Platter.  Almost half of that is the USB stack and the remainder the actual "guts" of the Pi Platter's functionality.

Next up: assembling the manufacturing test fixture once boards arrive and writing its software...
