We are taking a break from our winter break to do an “Ask an engineer” tonight 10pm ET 1/9/2010 – our location is remote, our connection is flakey, but will be broadcasting (or trying to) tonight! Ladyada has made a Wifi amplifier from coconuts, so we think it will be ok.
Visit our new “chat” section on Adafruit at 10pm ET, Saturday nights
There will be a trivia question at the end of the night as always!
Lastly, if anyone can save a text log we’d appreciate it
Orders placed between 1/4/2010 and 1/11/2010 may take 4-5 business days to ship (back orders or in stock items). Adafruit is taking a one week winter break to recharge 🙂

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
Streaming from the beach?
A well deserved vacation! Thanks for all you do for the community!
