It's not a waste of your time, because I will alert the folks at Opal Kelly and ask them to respond to your comment :-)

I signed up for EEtimes and wasted my (expensive) time only to write this comment: I don't understand why the Opal Kelly drivers (FrontPanel) are not accessible online. It's the third time in three years that I'm stuck without those drivers and they're intentionally not available online (you have to sign up for the forum, get approved, request access to the downloads section, wait for approval...). lab computers are replaced every once in a while. do you really expect me to physically keep the circle with the hole that came with it (CD) two years ago?? that's a very annoying approach and a big con for Opal Kelly products.

I really like the Opal Kelly concept of creating these little modules so that designers of larger systems can focus on what they do best ... if you've used any of these modules and would care to share your experiences I'd love to hear them (max@CliveMaxfield.com)
