It has been a long haul getting this project done, I’ve blogged about the progress and done a few videos on my own blog if you want to see the whole process.

I started this at least a year ago, shelved it more than once for technical and creative reasons, but as of last night, it’s done!!!

My latest blog entry has a couple of videos of it in action if you want to hear the noise this things makes…my ears are still ringing.
