Thanks Fredley, I appreciate the kind words. I run this community forum identically to how I run NewsBlur. Answering support and doing it in public is a joy for me.
You’re right that I shipped the hardware first. The software was actually written well before I got the hardware right. And if you received a prototype device, you know how far the hardware had to go. But now that hardware is nearly shipped (still got all the Rosewoods left to ship, but I’m half-way done with those) I’m coming back to getting the software right.
Pairing is a pain because Bluetooth can be flaky on new devices. But once they’ve done the handshake, it works perfectly.
