piSmasher reminder, snickerdoodle update


A reminder for all those with outstanding piSmasher orders: If you have not done so already, you MUST fill out the online form linked in the last update…and linked again here. And here:

__If you don’t complete this form, we cannot ship (or refund) your order.__ Note: Fulfillment priority will go to those who completed the form in accordance with the original deadline (July 31). Any orders associated with submissions after this date will be fulfilled in the next production run. Also, there is a comment section at the end of the form for any “special requests” (or compliments/insults).

For those who have already completed the form: Thank you! And rest assured, your responses have been recorded and forwarded to Crowd Supply for processing. It will likely take a few weeks for them to process everyone’s requests (as there are several hundred), but it will be done.

As far as progress goes, production is humming along. The PCBs are due to arrive in the next 48 hours with assembly to commence shortly thereafter (as soon as the CM completes the kit audit and can get the job on the line).

Also, in snickerdoodle news…another shipment of ~200 boards just landed at Crowd Supply and we’ve started the next batch of snickerdoodle blacks. Combined, this will represent the LAST of the preordered snickerdoodles – we made it!!! These are likely still several weeks from shipping, but the light at the end of the tunnel is starting to get a lot brighter.

Finally, if you haven’t already, please check out our new website and let us know what you think:

All snickerdoodle resources have been moved over (including the forum, which is now “live” again). Thanks for bearing with us during this transition. Hopefully everyone finds the new site to be a much more valuable resource.

That’s it for now. Any questions or immediate needs, please email us at and we’ll get back to you as quickly as we can.

Keep on doodling,
