      Impatiently waiting for my first alpha.. (yes, I know.. 7 to 9 days. But my mailbox needs its feeding of silicon!)

      Hey you guys can consider kick starting the bear monster for the chip computer... I'd love to one of the Kickstarter to get my hands on the bear monster with my $9 chip!

      Teddy Ruxpin... I still have one of those hanging around somewhere. Wow, that brings back old memories.

      I would hope to see some Ham radio applications- Arduino has been very popular- a balloon transmitting beacon crossed the Atlantic using only 2 mylar party balloons and it went all the way to France and Sweden-

      I see a schematic, above, for the teddy project. I sure hope you publish the source code that runs it. I'd love to learn from it!!

      Should I have received an email and / or tracking number when my Alpha chip shipped? Because I haven't. I have also checked and my BackerKit information is correct.

      I haven't been paying too close attention, but how do things look for being able to buy CHIPs individually post-Kick Starter shipments? As in, will they be available right after the Kick Starter shipments ship out? Or will you need to wait for some orders to build up before being able to do another run?

      Just got my alpha C.H.I.P, now it's time to start creating.

      I still haven't gotten my alphaCHIP. Any way to check if it got out to me, or if there's a tracking number?

      SO PUMPED about Chippy Ruxbin. It's almost exactly what I have in mind for mine when I get it. I'll be making my daughter's toy robot tell knock knock jokes. Can't wait.
