Alright, the project has started! Put in my first orders for the microscopes and raw materials from the flume. You can see them updated on the expenses page.
Already creating problems, as I'm waiting to hear back from McMaster on the price of custom-cut glass sheets. I'd like to have a glass bottom for the spores to settle on, but if McMaster charges me through the roof, I'll have to settle for some scratch-resistant acrylic or something lame like that. Fingers crossed!
