Ok, all the rumors aside, I'm still alive and kickin! I won't quit anytime soon, but as mentioned various times before, my time is limited lately.
I have a lot of new stuff ready, but still working on the new machine sides and stuff. Due to demand I will repack a working 128x version for 1.2 without all of the new sides.
Oh and Cobster, the resin will be exactly what you suggested!

Texturepack-related I have to say: excellent - are you planning to create more GUIs?
IC²-related - does anybody have a bright idea how wiring works? The tutorial I read on the wiki didn't help me out in the least - it doesn't seem to be targeted to newbies.
Check out Direwolfs tutorials, he is awesome at explaining stuff!!
