Has anyone moved the repository to GitHub or another repository for future development/ preservation?

Re: Dual Cameras on Kit with Canon + CHDK

Thanks! That seems easier than soldering or hacking the ca-1
In your version are you just setting the one push or doing a delay?

I found a splitter that seems to work, but waiting for the second camera to fully test it out.

Traveling with the Book Scanner - Thoughts / Problems

Hello, I have the standard kit build and interested if anyone else moved their scanner often? Are there anythings I should consider? I like the ideas of the t bolts for the inside. Should I blue/green loctite the bolts? Have people had problems with glass breaking enroute due to potholes/ vibration ?
