Has anybody gotten their diy MPGuino from fundamental knowledge?

I ordered a kit on 08/24/2009, knowing that it was backordered. I wasn't really expecting a month long wait. I've emailed them twice and haven't gotten any response. I just wanted to know an estimated ETA. Not in a super hurry, but just a status update would be nice.

I'd like to get it installed before I try out a HHO cell in the car.

Thanks!

I bought mine from them last year, and it took over a month then.

I got mine more than a year ago in fairly short order, hopefully they'll get their act together soon though...

Ordered mine about two months ago, took about three weeks for it to come in. They never called or emailed to notify me when it shipped. The only response I could get was by calling their phone number: 866-395-4148. Once I got in touch with him, he was very helpful about my order status and when it would be shipping.

Home built, or $185 on craigslist.org?

Interested to see the result of the test.

If they need about one month to ship it within US, how long may it take into EU?

Sounds not good for me. Are there other shops that sell the mpguino? I would also buy a preassambled version, but I want a USB Port to transfer the program on my own. As far as I know, this http://opengauge.org/mpguino/ one don't come with USB?

It's shipped from Canada, which is why it takes longer to get to the US. It still has to go through customs and stuff at the border. So, it probably wouldn't take much longer to get to EU. Still, I would pay the extra couple dollars for the faster shipping service.

As far as I know, nobody else sells the kit. I would call them before you order and try to get an idea of how long it will take, it seems like that'll be the best way to do it.

Just FYI, if you want USB and don't care about the lcd display, then it is a real trivial thing to take any arduino or clone (kit) and put a couple resistors and zener diodes on it and plug it in your laptop and collect data from the mpguino code.

Kevin likes to take his time, I think he batches the orders a little bit (It's not like there are a ton of orders or anything).

It's not so practical to have a notebook with me on my motorcycle The display is my "problem", I can't get it here. And I don't think I can change the code to talk to another type.

I wrote them a mail, lets wait and see..
