Once again, I have bought something to play with in the name of "for school," because I teach technology so it remotely relates to my curriculum.

And I did this knowing full well that the PICO-8 website is blocked by our web filter, but oh, well.

Pocket C.H.I.P. Ordering Experience 

Got an order confirmation email and a separate Thank You email from Gabriel. Pocket C.H.I.P. hasn't been shipped yet, though I'm told I'll get a different email to confirm when that happens.

If it doesn't go out this week I might have regrets about having it sent to my school address instead of my home address.

Progress!

... of a sort.

Pre-Shipment is a wonderful word.

I might start calling some students' projects "Pre-Finished."

I'd already have it in my hands, except the USPS tried delivering it to my school after 6pm ... on a Saturday.

In retrospect I should have had it delivered to my HOME address, but hindsight is 20/20.

Better luck tomorrow?

I have it! Yay!

But the charger cable (which I did not order, as it's a standard USB) is at home.

It's for the best, I've no time to play with it today.
