Hi. It’s been quite some time since my last correspondence with you all, and it’s about time I broke the silence.
First off, I want to apologize to all those who have waited patiently for updates with little to show for it. The support for this project has been immense over the years, and I regret the momentum and collaborative opportunities I’ve wasted since its inception. The kind words and enthusiasm you all bring to the table mean a lot to me, and I’m excited to interact with the followers of this project on a more personal basis in the future.
Life has thrown me one curveball after another since this project began, and I can’t say I’ve done a great job finding a balance between my goals and life’s obligations. Since my last update I broke my ankle, got surgery, recovered, graduated with my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, drove from NY to my home in CA, and began work in my field. Things continue to be hectic, but I’ve reached a point of stability, which brings me to the purpose of this post:
I’m resuming work on Project Yedinorog, and I’ll need your help more than ever. While I don’t have as much time or energy to work on this as much as when I started, I’ll be budgeting out some time every week to make progress. This will include weekly (or semi-weekly) status updates, as well as other relevant posts. This is where you come in. Going forward, there are countless challenges that replicating the VSS poses. In the coming posts, I’ll be detailing these problems further - including design considerations, manufacturability challenges, and the massive hurdle of parts acquisition. If you think you can help in any way, please reach out!
I really appreciate the love and patience of those who believe in this undertaking, and I look forward to what we will accomplish.
