My kids and I want to thank you for the amazingly fast amazingly packed and amazingly awesome packages we received today. You made our day Amazing in all the best ways. Not only did the Lulzbot 4 work on the very first printrun but the books are already being devoured and the Pi’s are being snatched up for Piboy projects. We will be having a ton of stuff to show off on the Show and Tells…and it is thanks to all the AdaPeople who made it possible.
It makes an old pheezer like myself so damn happy that a company like yours with the ethos you foster exists. You are a welcome part of our geek family.
Yours in happiness,
-Tom, Ben and Isaac
