Has anyone received their Tinker boards yet? I'm eager to try them out.

@Caleb....you're too kind....but really don't worry overmuch, especially if it's something your lawyers (or Karen) would frown on....   but then again, I've got stuff like that before from EET.....

@MKolb: Agreed. Don was among the faithful in the golden era of print captions when all you got for your efforts was your name immortalized in the weekly newspaper. Go Don!

haha, I'll personally mail you one if that is the case. It will be fairly cheap, they're flat since you have to solder the headers on!

@Caleb - shouldn't have opened my big mouth :-)   Send it to Max if you can.  Otherwise I'll just never talk to you again!

I'm working on octobers! I didn't realize you were in australia. I think that might exclude you from getting a dev board from Adafruit.

Nice choice Caleb and thanks for my "mention in dispatches".  But where is October's - it's already the 3rd  here in Australia!

Just speaking for myself, this comic lent itself to all kinds of interesting things that I have seen over the years.  I was excited to see Don Swaab still submitting captions.  I remember seeing his captions from when I was a young engineer reading the paper copies of EE Times.  That has been a few years.  This was a lot of fun.  I look forward to October's caption contest.

I love the caption contest. My personal favorite is: AbramsonCraig: "Yes, this is the version of the SHARC that has an ARM in it. And a few LEGS. And a SNORKEL. "
