Paul,

He might be a nice guy but he is having too many problems, that to me is a sign that you should look elsewhere in the future.
Good Business is about coming up with the goods when you say you will, at the price you agree, with no stress on either side. Problems can happen but they are dealt with quickly and efficiently so that they are only a slight hickup.
Both side should walk away at the end with the feeling of a job well done and a bit of cash jingling in their pockets and happy to do repeat business.
The alternative will send you to an early grave because of the stress and also very little money.
Good Business is easy business

err sorry about the lecture

Sorry Ray, but the problem was only with the printing, so i forgive him.
The most important is he deliver the quality we want.
Its his first run on the board, and all problems will be sorted out after the beta so afterwards everything is ready for the production.
Yes i also didnt liked the little festive period but more important is he is honest.
Normally i really like to deal with my manufactorer, ok he is sometimes a bit inconsistent with the delivery times but did always a good job.
I know other manufactorers but such a guy is hard to find (can talk hours about it why).

Paul,

oh really no problem Ray, i can understand you i also dont want to wait anymore.
Its also no nice feeling for me, i feel a bit like a child who know what he gets on cristmas and have to wait a month for it ( i am also needing more flyduinos here for my copter projects, ASP).
But now its the night before cristmas evening (or your cristmas morning, spend a cristmas in UK when i was a child on which i got some modell rokets)
Just wanted to point out to get a complete populated pcb is a bit more complicated then to buy a liter of milk in your next supermarket, especially on the first run.
I hope i can sleep well tonight
tomorrow i will see at least some pics of the boards and if its cristmas and birthday together he may have some populated in the evening.
Lets us hope, i reply as far i have news.
