Hi Les.

I would like to congratulates you again. eChucK is a awesome project and the
applications are unlimited. I think we can use it even for educational

I would like to receive the board. I think we can replicate it here in
Brazil (we have a PCB prototyper here at the university) and send some
copies to people around the world. What do you think?

Yes. We'll try to use Arduino instead of PICs to power some UGens.
