From the mail bag!

I ordered two of the Adaboxes. wanted to for a while
but never pulled the trigger on the subscription. purchased 001 and 003.
Opened 001 and followed Lady Ada unboxing and was disappointed when didn’t
get the Feather Pin. Then read website (okay so I didn’t read so good the
first time when I ordered..finally caved on buying Adabox didn’t need to
read anything) anyway got over it when I read the website and totally get
the exclusive bonus to subscribers…my daughter agreed. “dude did you read
the website”…Anyway this is a positive story. I was over it. happily
playing my feather and lighting up the Neopixel wing…yay….then wanted to
go all IoT and opened up Adabox 003. Had already read website, accepted no
cloud pin and no Digikey Ruler. My guys at work have ordered from Digikey
and have the coveted ruler already. so lots of ruler envy going on
but…hey I read the website, I’m cool with that. ….but I opened my back
order no subscriber box and what was in side……A DigiKey ruler…of my
own. Thank you so much Adafruit. I am going to subscribe now…so my
daughter can have the highly coveted exclusive pins. I love your stuff,
love your guides…We have successfully built a bunch of the projects. All
top notch. Great job. Lady Ada you Rock and your team are awesome too.
Thank you all for doing what you do.
