Mega-processor is not your typical CPU. When complete, it'll be 2 meters high and 14 meters wide. This will be an interesting display of how processors work. http://www.megaprocessor.com/index.html
Why ? - short answer : Because I want to. Why ? - long answer : Computers are quite opaque, looking at them it's impossible to see how they work. What I would like to do is get inside and see what's going on. Trouble is we can't shrink down small enough to walk inside a silicon chip.

Sure does.  I've got a reel like that in green.

So, I got my first quote from Bay Area Circuits. $450 for 10 boards with v-grooving, $275 for a framed stencil. Any tips/tricks for getting the cost down? I looked around and saw Stencils Unlimited does them for $185.

Sizing up the panels is a double-edged sword. I want to be able to test the entire assembly process, but I also don't want a full-sized panel with $800 in components as a test run. Too small, and the testing stencil wouldn't be fast enough for a first production run and I'd be wasting that first stencil.

That definitely sounds more reasonable.  I'd still get a quote from the others, though.  I recently bought 10 - 10cm x 10cm panels (400 PCBs total) from Seeed for <$80 shipped.

I recently heard about the ChipWhisperer Lite - a solution for reverse engineering with some unique features. It comes to about $183 US if there's a group buy for 10. This chip is capable of uncovering undocumented features and decryption (AES-128 in 2 minutes).

Is anyone crazy enough to actually ride this? It's about 900' above the ground.

My project has 44 wires to connect to 10 headers. If I'm going to make more than one of these, I'll need automation. Does anyone have automation experience? I found a product listing with over 15 pages of automated tooling for stripping and crimping: http://www.wire-processing-machine.com/full-automatic-terminal-crimping-machine-1.html

I'm trying to keep this equipment under $5000 if at all possible. The only thing I've located so far is over $13000.

It does up to 2 layers on a side, no drilling or milling.

Chevy Volt spotted on I-440 this morning, government plate EV-00001. Proof they exist, although $40,000+ is too expensive. My 2001 Prius seemed about the same size.

Lol, he drove like a grandma. The Prius is pretty quick from lights with over 250 ft lb of instant torque.

The 2 bedroom condo was spacious, right by the aquarium, and had a full kitchen and 2 full bathrooms. The wifi password is available at the front desk and 4g picks up fine as well. There's also a creek to wade in. No breakfast, but head to the pancake pantry, bring cash.

Service at this location is nonexistent. Plan on 10-15 minute wait times. The current manager (new person) is hiding the real times by making the customers wait up to 5 minutes to place an order. A drive thru order taker and grill assembler are needed before 7am. Ideally, both drive through booths would be staffed, grill would have 2 people, and the manager would run for both while taking front counter orders. Two people can't handle the breakfast rush by themselves without losing customers. Update: much improved, slow at times but not bad overall.
