Hey man, I am one of your original supporters. I bought two Flircs way back in the day when they were $35 or so plus shipping and only available from your site. Now they are on Amazon for half the cost with free shipping. A steal! I have lost count of how many I have told ppl to buy after they saw what can be done with an HTPC (probably close to a hundred is my guess).
Anyway, I have seen that you have done a lot with firmware, software, compatibility, features. But the one thing that bothers me is the form factor of this device. I know you need to keep the casing clear to be compatible with IR signals. I am fine with that. But I wish that you could shrink down the footprint of the Flirc so that it does not protrude from the receving device as much. I have several SFF PC's that I use this on ranging from RPi's to an Intel NUC. Each time I look at how elegantly small these devices are, I can't help but to be left wanting for smaller USB dongle-type form factor for my Flic. Someting along the line of this:
If you ever pulled this off, just take my money all over again....
