    I greatly appreciate your high prioritization of personal privacy. Thank you!

    That said, I would be OK if my information was part of the set you handed to the police. I can understand being one of the false positives if there was sufficient reason to put me there:

    • Bad reason for being included: “you and the perpetrator both live on the West coast”.
    • OK reason for being included: “the crime took place a quarter mile from your house, the criminal was your height, and he drove off in the same model and color of car that you own.”

    The width of that cast net is important, and it sounds like you worked with the police to narrow it to a completely reasonable and defensible subset of customers. I don’t think anyone (including you) should demand more of you than that.

    Before tonight, I’d only used a soldering iron once - to make a patch cable. I built this kit in about 45 minutes and it worked perfectly the first time, giving 3.29V and 4.97V out with the TOL-00298 wall wart. Talk about a confidence builder! Thanks for the great kit!

No public wish lists :(
