Thank You


Sometimes I sit in my LEGO lair and look at all the stuff I have in there and I realise that a LOT of it has been given to me by kind-hearted souls and companies (which are obviously run by kind-hearted people).  I have received letters sent to me by physical mail to thank me for the Driver Suite, for that I am also grateful.  Receiving a letter like that, an email or a few kind words left on my blog, really makes my day.  Earlier this week I wrote a support post and got a great response.  To those who donated, thank you, the money will be well spent, I assure you!

To all the great companies, Dexter Industries, Generation Robotics, HiTechnic, Holit Data Systems, LEGO, Microinfinity, Mindsensors and Robomatter, thank you for sharing your products with me, allowing to play with your toys and be part of the development of exciting new things.

Thank you to the ROBOTC community for actually using the stuff I write; when I started writing these driver, I never figured they’d be useful to many people other than myself and perhaps a handful of others.

Last, but certainly not least, my wonderful wife, Tammy, who, at the time of marrying me, had no idea I was going to get back into LEGO at some point and accrue such an extensive collection of bricks, beams, pins and other robot stuff, a big thank you for having the patience to put up with my obsession.

To all all of you, thank you!
