@GMISoft, Goon on you commercializing supposedly prototype equipment; don't let them tell you can't. However, products going out of life unexpectedly is a fact of life, just take some bereavement leave and keep on trucking. Further, always have more than one way of doing something: if one vendor craps out just fail over to the next vendor. Between GHI, Sparkfun, Adafruit and others you can replace all the modules that became discontinued. I believe that because of the general availability of such components that GHI decided to discontinue their line of those types of products. Last, GHI will most likely build you any discontinued product of theirs anyway if you reach out to them; they are reasonable like that.
