I got my first arduino a year ago and started tinkering away, today I received my first parts orders with totals in the thousands ;D
The Arduino team unleashed a fluffy bunny gizmo trojan horse of Open Sourcery.
It is both a blessing and a curse ;D
More info on my Arduino derivatives the Acore and Evolution after the beginning of the year.
I hope they add something back to the community that has already given me so much back of my past tinkering and fun.
