Well I guess it’s about time to get off my ass and finish the humidor project. After completing the proof of concept (and blowing up two Ardweenys) I ordered the components I would need to make the final board.

Everything but the resonators came in promptly. I ordered them on the third of June through an Amazon re-seller called Uxcell. I got an email from them stating they were shipped out a couple of days after I ordered them. As they were coming from China there was a considerably longer shipping time than I’m used to with Amazon. The latest estimated delivery date was July 16th. When I still hadn’t received them by the 17th I sent them an email. It worked out that since I work second shift, and sent the email when I got home, that it arrived during their business hours and I got a prompt response. There was no hemming and hawing, they simply asked if I wanted a refund or a resend of the product. I requested a resend and it arrived in a couple of weeks. I assume my original package is sitting in some customs warehouse somewhere. For something that cost $2.66, with free shipping from the other side of the planet, I certainly can’t complain.
