For F's sake dude, just stop. Your abrasive style just makes people dislike you. Good job. People are just lining up to help you. This statement of yours, too, is was the Brits refer to as "utter bollocks". Like I said earlier, nobody here has ever even heard of this company, but you expect everybody has been following them behind the scenes and scurrying to program support for their future hardware? And shocked and appalled that nobody has. Are you insane?

Do yourself and him a favor and ask him to get in touch with Derrick. You can't seem to do any good at all.

OK. That's reasonable. Program support for devices that haven't been made yet... It's just not going to happen for ransacked parts out of broken cabs, no matter how many thousands of them you think there are out there waiting to be bought up by people just dying to spend a week figuring out the wiring and whatever else. So keep kicking and screaming cause you look pretty sweet. People can just build a prototype and approach Derrick as a human being and see if he'll add support for them if he gets one for free and then if it works out, go into production. This simple little idea is difficult for you to understand.

You're pretty much out of the question at this point, I can't imagine why anyone would want to work with your militant ass.
