From the mail bag!


I just received my Raspberry Pi B+ and your Adafruit case and I am just so thrilled! I wanted to send a few Thank You’s, can you please share them with the appropriate people?
Franklin: Thank you for your prompt response and helping me with a shipping question on your forum. You guys do a great job monitoring these forums!

Jessica: thanks for getting back to me right away when I sent a support email and updating the shipping address on my order!

Phillip (Mr. Ladyada): Thank you for running the Ask an Engineer show! I look forward to it every Wednesday evening and I learn so much from you and everything that you share on that show. You do an excellent job!

Limor (Ladyada): Thank you so much for everything that you do! You are truly talented and your contributions have left and will continue to leave a huge positive impact on our world and the maker movement. I love reading your guides, watching your videos, and learning from you. Also, as a man who believes in the need for more women in the tech world, you are inspiring thousands of young women out there. Keep up the great work!

And finally, a big thank you to Adafruit and to everyone who works there. I love this company, and I love the fact that you guys do such an awesome job educating people, producing top-notch content and learning guides. To be honest, I could have ordered from one of your competitors where I already have an account set up but I intentionally wanted to place my first Raspberry Pi purchase from Adafruit because I am such a huge fan of what you do! Keep up the excellent work!
