        The customary engineer letter :

        Dear MP,

        In the month of February '15:

        A) Discovered a recently-opened fully-roboticized prototyping house. Commissioned, on the 18th of the month, a test - two (yes, they've no min. qty.) RNG units of the familiar design ('TW'.) Some minor edits (formatting, of no electrical significance) were required. [2] If the sample units prove satisfactory, I will consider a hybrid approach where passive components on the mainboard are mounted at the assembly house, while CPU will be mounted here on the premises where I can see them.

        As of this writing, I do not have the samples in my hands yet. But it appears that they are in the final stages of production, and are to be shipped at the end of this week. If I find no cause for complaint, a small quantity of mainboards shall be ordered.

        B) Much down-time, sadly. But that particular 'death march' at day job appears to be over, and shall not be replaced with another for a good while. The less said on this subject, the more interesting will be this letter.

        C) Spent a considerable amount of time assisting TheRealBitcoinFoundation in its efforts:
        c-1) Produced a set of armv5-compatible binaries for experimental test [4]
        c-2) Eliminated DNS-based seeder fro 0.5.3 [5]
        c-3) Performed an analysis of the current state of seeds found in the original 0.5.3 source [6]
        c-4) Determined process for tftp (network) boot of 'pogo' [7]
        c-5) Ported NetBSD to the 'pogoplug' !
        This OS offers a number of advantages on the kind of machine we are dealing with. In
        particular, the kernel is lightweight, relatively easy to understand, and the build system
        includes the cross-compiler and functions on any reasonable unixlike. However, some
        polishing is still required before the result (patch set for standard NetBSD distribution)
        can be considered publishable. See below:
        c-6) Found bug (and crude workaround) in NetBSD sata driver for the 'pogo' system-on-chip. [8]
        c-7) [Incomplete as of this date] NAND storage driver for 'pogo'.
        c-8) [Incomplete] 'Femto-ECC', a mutilation of 'micro-ecc' for possible future use in a tandem
        arrangement, with the goal of eventual elimination of 'openssl' from the apparatus. [9]
        c-9) Learned the basics of Ada/SPARK, for the apparently unavoidable future project of crafting a
        provably-correct implementation of ECDSA (and perhaps of everything else...) as may be
        required by the Foundation.


        [2] Why: because it is a small part with very well-specified design and test procedure. Total spent (2 units) 70.30 USD.
