LOL!

It looks like the parcel is moving along very fast! I refreshed the page and it looked like it had been passed 2 or more times...

I've been wondering about the way the parcel is passed....

So, the formula is 2^n right? What decides the value of n? Is it decided before the parcel can be passed, or is it affected by the number of passes?

Also, does the number of passes/the value of "n" reset at the end of monday, or are they carried over to the next monday?

Reset "n" and wrap some of those cool DSOs up (that were in the 1000th member parcel) ;-) They looked great!

Well, I got back to home yesturday :)
I was the winner of the monday's parcel, and I received finally the parcel's content :) Thanks XMOS.

Everything is ok, and extremely well packaged.
Just as a notice, Sparkfun sent the solder station but didn't took into account that I live in France, so we have 230V instead of 110V. While the power cord is not a pb (can be changed), the solder station has really a true 110V transformer, so impossible to use it out of the box. Hopefully I have a 220v<>110V adapter.

Will be trying this thing next weekend :)

Thanks Jason and thanks to XMOS Team !

I received my DSO Nano V2 a couple of days ago!

A great little scope especially once you have installed the BenF firmware upgrade. I won’t be throwing away my bench scope (150Mhz, 5GSps, 4 Chan) but the Nano will be a great addition to my tool bag.

Many thanks to Jason & XMOS for putting up these parcels!

Regards, Roger...
