hahhahaa thank you.

Anyway I also got some things, and no clue as to the santa!! Two packages, specifically.

One contained this!



First, A tin of home made chocolate chip and raisin cookies! Yum!

Then three vials of booze! I wasn't able to get the QR codes to scan, but I already know what's up with Japanese whiskey so here we go!

* Suntory Kurayoshi 18
* Suntory Yamazaki 12
* Oban 14

I LOVE the Yamazaki 12 already (have a bottle stashed away!) I mostly just sip the Hibiki blended when I'm doing JP whiskey! The Kurayoshi 18 is new to me! I will be sipping the Oban tonight, thank you!

And then from this package, finally a R2 tamagochi! I actually never had a tamagochi growing up, so this will be a new thing for me!

But wait there was another package, also unidentified sender and this one honestly I wasnt sure if was a secret santa gift or not becuase i also am into lock picking, and have ordered from CI before! haha



A pick set and a easily re-pinnable practice lock, including security pins! While I have plenty of picks (thank you regardless,) the practice lock is COOL! I did not have one of these yet, so now I can practice my LPL imitations even better! Thanks!

Sorry for not having the time to put a note in the box. I was down to only a few hours when it came time to pack and ship and had like a dozen other packages to mail that day too, hahah!

I had a few of those 50ml vials around so I gave you some of my best bottles. The Matsui Kurayoshi 18 is probably the most expensive bottle even though Suntory's got the name recognition.

The cookies are dark chocolate craisin cookies loosely following this recipe: https://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/dried-cranberry-and-chocolate-cookies

R2 seemed like a suitable hacker substitute until your Dolphin arrives. R2 knows how to hack stuff, right? XD

And the CI dummy lock & training kit seemed like a good way to get some practice in :)

Merry Yosmas sniep - you're indeed impossible to shop for

Iím glad you liked your gift. I also included incredibly cliche sticker packs for the YOSTOP. Iíll also check out the mythical man month. Also check out obsidian for mental maps it used .md files and organizes notes very well.

Stickers!

Probably. Worked the last time I tried using it. I keep the battery outside of the laptop, though.

Hey I've had this for a few days but just had time to post it:



Neito got me a really cool book from a local retro computing organization:



Its got a bunch of cool black and white photography from various old computer bits and parts, very cool. I'll flip through this while listening to this

They also got me a neat looking book on the Commadore 64. I read "On The Edge: The Spectacular Rise and Fall of Commodore" years ago (like wow, probably 15 years ago... I was in college) and am really into history of that platform.

Finally, when they reached out to make sure I had gotten my gifts, I said that I had and apologized I hadn't posted them earlier. I don't talk about my personal life too much on the forums, but my wife and I just had our first child, born on the last day of last year, and today is her first day home. When I told them this, they added on this cool projector lamp, that's so awesome.

Thanks so much, Neito! This is all really great.

hell yeah, got my YOSMAS gift today and don't have to worry about it floating away if it showed up tomorrow.

This is already promising.



Excellent, I'm sure the Postal Police would love to know about this. I should mention they have something like a 98% conviction rate.



im calling the cops



:patriot:



I should get that stock turned into a big sticker somehow then put it on the back of a laptop.



This is technically a dead company so it's going into my rotation of work shirts



you don't know how hard it was to style this

Thanks for all this stuff. Despite my terrible posts, you truly figured out how to gift.

LUCK ???
when i went downstairs this morning, there was a cute little package nestled under the yosmas tree .....


what could be inside????


everything about this is very exciting - but the letter comes first


i appreciate the sentiment but my posting is a lost cause. let's take a look inside


roster:
(1) casio wristwatch (the best watch in the world)
(1) copy of HACK MATCH for the NES (i love zachtronics and this gift and am very sad i only have a SNES at home)
(1) stylish hat for wearing to political events around campus
(2) boxes of some of the best computer software ever sold (i first discovered the joy of computing on windows vista)
(1) bag of delicious coffee that i cannot wait to try
(1) tayne pin. he's going on my backpack

thank you santa fuzzy mammal!! you have made this the best yosmas ever and i cannot wait to wear, display, and use these gifts. i hope you are infected with holiday cheer for months to come (:

Hey I'm glad you like everything!

- The casio I bought two of because it felt extremely yospos as soon as I saw it. I get constant compliments when i wear mine.
- Cafe Vita is probably my favourite Seattle coffee these days and del sol is their medium roast.
- The hat was a goon project back during the primaries I think. still sad the tape was never released!!!
- Here is the story of hack/match. I got to pick it up in person from the zachtronics offices and meet the team :3:
- vista is the most pos of oses natch
- the tayne pin should do a nice hat wobble yea

thats all i sent really, was gonna get you an EEPROM programmer and 5v power supply to go with it but the ones i could find were more than i could really afford :/

there are some fairly inexpensive arduino addons to read and write eeproms and the microchip serial eeprom dev board is pretty decent for dips. soics you'll need a clip or something to touch the legs.
