Due to pancreatic cancer, Marty will no longer be able to continue developing and releasing new hardware designs on FreeIO.org. The site will be left up, and it should run until the domain registration expires, or the server dies.
Marty (Diehl Martin) has run this site alone since Winter of 2000. He financed all of the projects, and hosted the site at his own expense since then. He has been fighting pancreatic cancer since September of 2004, and the cancer seems to be winning. As such, he is putting his energies elsewhere.
