Yeah, I'm around. Tentator dragged me in with the news of your return.
Haven't touched the stuff for 3 months tho. Or was it four? Doing CS tech support (3 new users since summer!), but otherwise completely disconnected.
Sangdrax shipped me 3 quite nice cortrons so I could add support for those to CS - but everything just kind of stuck in the middle - mostly work taking its toll (lots of interesting problems to solve). Still some hope for getting back at those - but.. should probably just shipped it all back already
Had CS BLE in the works, got as far as PoC BLE firmware + prototype PCB (cypress BLE module plus LTC-3559-based buck converter for power efficiency) - also paused for lack of interest, both internal and external.
I mean.. I've got there - about 20 hours of full bore operation on single-cell 500mAh Li-ion, promising results on a jury-rigged proximity sensor over my F122 so device knows when fingers are away and goes low power - but also knows when fingers are back while in powersaving and powers up. Not productionized, of course. Will be pretty expensive too - about $30 just for silicon (probably $2 for everything else except connectors - inductors and large-ish caps required by buck converters have non-zero cost.).
Still testing CS attached to an XTant every day (it's my primary driver).
More than a year already, if memory serves. It's quite stable - didn't have to recalibrate even once.
Crumbs getting under the flippers are the problem though. Make sure the perimeter of the assembly is airtight.
