On that note, does anyone know if this counter project is still active? Some
time ago I asked about this, but never got a reply. Maybe the e-mail got
eaten by a spam filter, or maybe I just didn't ask nice enough, I don't
If there is still an active project, I'd be interested. If not, I'll just
keep doing my own fpga based counter thing.

They look interesting, Tristan. Gee, nobody's "in charge" of this, I'm not
sure it's even a project at this point, and AFIK there's no out of turn
:-). I too like the Arduino, in fact I've settled on them or the Propeller
for projects if I can, so the boards you propose may work just fine.
