Nice! Where do you have your PCBs manufactured?

I just wanted to tip my hat and say what a simple and sensible solution, especially if they can become an item in your shop or a made-to-order offering. Top work.

May I ask what your source for the DRAM is? I understand if you don't want to reveal it... just thought it would be worth asking at least.
