Yeah I know the feeling. I had some time to play with it at first, but now I'm busy as hell. Right now I'm in new york for a couple of days checking out some colleges. Getting into college is extremely time consuming.
On my sheeva, I'm just going to reload the kernel. I also have a CAN-USB connector now which uses FTDI as well. I'm also going to be setting up 3G internet which would probably be another issue down the road.
