Mailbag-1

We have a winner for the Adafruit mailbag envelope entity naming contest!. Congrats Stan Seibert! You suggested “Packet”! Stan is a Physicist at the University of Pennsylvania and we’re sending him a nice gift from Adafruit!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Reminded me of this:

    If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
    And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
    And the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
    Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report!

    If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash
    And the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
    And your data is corrupted ’cause the index doesn’t hash
    Then your situation’s hopeless, and your system’s gonna crash!

  2. @Mark – I remember that poem! Thanks for the nostalgia 🙂
