When Darwin (ddg@) posted the "last deed" email, I wrote to my contacts at 
Electrix. I got an answer back while the thread was still hot, and that 
response is what I had posted saying that Electrix is in fact 
their old product line in favor of being able to focus on new looping 
products, i.e., Repeater.

My contact also confirmed that Repeaters are built, packed in boxes, and 
waiting for final code so that they can ship. They're still looking at 
shipping very soon.

It's pretty common these days for a small company to consolidate their 
resources on where they think the market is. I think that's what we're 
seeing happen with Electrix.
