Well...not much has happened. I've been swamped (work, classes, DBF, etc...).
I got my hands on a pair of Ground Industries Bionic Spring trucks...arguably the best trucks out there (too bad GI seems to be going out of business).
I also bought a bunch of metal stock (for hub motors and battery box). EHB will happen eventually...just not as fast as I'd originally hoped...so no, you can't ride it yet.
