Nice job. I've done some wire-wrap projects. Nothing that large for,
I'm sure you can see why, obvious reasons.

One question - I noticed the large soldered "wire" running around the
outside of the board. From the way it looks like it goes, doesn't that
cause ground-loop problems? The books I've read on electronic design and
layout have substantially different geometry.

Cool. BTW, your link to www.sparetimegizmos.com has a typo in it - you
need to put an "http://" in front of it. The way you have it, it's a
relative link to your own page.


BTW, where'd you get the rack-mount case?
