It looks like I set too aggressive of a deadline, and I burned out well shy of the finish line on my project. When you're overnighting a few yards of Polartec 200 to finish something, it means your project has run out of control.
This is not the end, but I'm going to slow down and not worry about the rush to completion. Another few months isn't the end of the world, and it means I'll have time for some Nintendo and the Professional Engineering review course and won't have to make the durability compromises that come from hasty completion.
I will still be doing a daytrip to the Cleveland Comic Con with :devCrystal-Circle:, so if anyone in my audience is a local, see you this Saturday.
