Did you ever figure out a solution for your padless QFN chip mentioned here?
I may be using the MPU-6150(http://invensense.com/mems/gyro/sixaxis.html) for a project soon and although it has a center pad, it specifically says not to solder it to the PCB. Fairly strange... I'm thinking a little *very* precise hobby knife and tape work might work but was wondering if you had found a solution already.
Also, you're the guy that made the shot counter. Very cool project, I saw it posted on reddit a while back.
Also, that question mark was supposed to be an exclamation point. Damn iPad keyboard...
