    With CONTROL connected, if I shut my machine down, CONTROL stays connected to my BlackBox. if I unplug the USB, it disconnects. Is there a way to change this? I have a kill switch on my machine that cuts power to everything but the computer; when I hit it (or even if I shut down normally) I'd like to be forced to reconnect.

    & what shorthand do you guys like for OpenBuilds CONTROL? Is it CONTROL? OBC? OB Control? I think I use something different every time I post...

    is fine in all caps, then we know its us.. Depends on wording and context

    My controller application isnt working... Does that mean CONTROL or some custom control application someone was working on, for example.

    BlackBox powers from USB too. So will stay connected. Which is fine. In an emergency resuming is very unlikely anyway. ReCAM. Rezero. Start again with a little aircutting if the stock can be salvaged
