The point of this project is to rebuild, repurpose and ReVolt! :)

The open source project known as Open ReVolt is due to the hard work of people like Paul,
Sabrina and the global force of volunteers that helped make that free design happen!

Tip o' the hat also to Doug < WebPage > for helping troubleshoot my
Open Revolt 2C.
