Behind the Scenes of Issue 36

Behind the Scenes: Issue 35 follow-up, latest progress, PCB design baby steps, layout design & keyloggers, to-do list.


I'd like to inform you that (for the first time after 36 weeks!), for temporary personal reasons, I might not be able to put out new issues on time in the next two weeks.

I'll try my best, but don't panic if I can't keep the usual publication date (which is btw Monday, 14:00-15:00 CET.)

These next issues will come eventually but they may come a few days later.
