A friend in academia is loaning me his copy of Labview 2009 for Mac / Win. Great news. I got it installed on the mac. I could not install it on the PC, as the PC lacks a DVD drive (CD only). I’m scrounging up an external drive.

We got the last of the parts for the coil power supply today too:

Received more capacitors from eBey. Eight total now. The last batch of parts arrive Tuesday the 6th.

Also made progress on the Kickstarter rewards:

Kind of interesting “spending time” with the patrons this way. I took a good look at each address to see the places this project has connected with all over the world. One reward is going to the NYC Google offices!
