New to all of this

Yes, I did mention BigJohnT somewhere (well I hope I did!). So his config is here gnipsel.com/shop/plasma/plasma.xhtml

In this case it sounded like there is no other option except using external offsets branch for THC, but there are several.
I did mention them all in my first reply
Tommylight also has a good system that has recently been adapted to use Mesa and the THCAD instead of the Proma150 he uses in europe. BigJohnT also has a config which was probably the original mesa config. Islander261 has got a good robust working PID based system that he says easilly exceeds the performance of his previous commercial controller. I've been using an experimental branch
They are building them now

I then shot over to mesa website and went to order the THCAD10 as well as the 7i76e but the 7i76e is out of stock. It seams like most of there step/IO boards are out of stock. Is this normal and do thy get them back in stock quickly?
