But too, want to use it in Win7 native for CAD applicarions or space-gaming
Kenyee: most of the components are 0805, but unless you're just wanting it I'm not likely to offer an SMD kit (too many fiddly bits); the kit version will be PTH with the ATMega already in place (I can reflow and program it here, so when the kit goes together it should "just work").
The idea for the case came from DP, but as is my usual contrary way, I just learned how to write a program to generate them in OpenSCAD, and this way I can change two numbers in a file for dimensions and get the case to fit whatever board I'm making. The same file with a few tweaks generates enough to fill a page for the laser cutters, and I can add whatever holes I need (I guessed wrong first time round, but I did get what I asked for). Much easier and cheap as chips in the long run because the laser cutter guy charges by the sheet and this just fills up a sheet.

Now I'm actually wondering if the components are really 0805, because you describe them as being easier to SMD solder and I still find them hard as heck!
