Power Switch Location

  1. I find it unhandy to have to power switch in the back.

    It might be good to move it to the front or a side toward the front, or top front?

    Yeah, it used to be near the SD card slot, but we moved it to the back so the power cables could be shorter. It was actually quite a challenge to manufacture them (for various silly reasons) that long.

    I've thought about adding that back to a future revision, possibly with a relay on the motherboard so the switch cables aren't carrying to much current.

    Hopefully as the software becomes more reliable the need to touch the switch will diminish.
