There's no need to fear, there'll be another round next year!

Unfortunately with the matches already thrown out, I wouldn't be able to easily match you up with someone. The only exception would be if someone else voices they'd like to join late and I could pair up you two.

The game theory of Secret Santa spices up when you *know* your Santa will be judging you!

When you’re giving to someone else in the pool, your main incentive is not to be a dick. You want to give the right amount: certainly not too little, but maybe not too much, because others in the group would be jealous.

When you’re giving to your very own Santa, your main incentive is to get competitive! You surely don’t want to cheapskate him, looking small and petty. Indeed, you kind of want to go all out and bury him in loot: “match that, Saint Nick!”

The elves expect a fight…

I missed today's mailing cutoff. My package should be outbound by tomorrow at lunch, my time.

It's alright, I didn't exactly give a super long time there. Just as long as something gets out before Christmas 2020.

I unfortunately won't be able to ship my package today as well, I'm really busy with my thesis which has to be finished until Christsmas.

Ho Ho Ho!

A little delayed due to Santa's Workshop catching fire and being snowed in.

(Santa wishes he was joking about the workshop but isn't - the elves are waiting for replacement parts to arrive from amazon so he can continue where he left off) - ugh.

The most important thing is that Mrs Claus and the Elves were unharmed (although the smallest elf is still having nightmares about the workshop burning down since her bedroom was right next to the workshop that had the fire).


... (and to drop character for a moment - everyone is fine, the building is fine... the equipment that caught fire is what I'm waiting for replacements for)

I opened mine yesterday but wasn’t sure if I was supposed to wait for Christmas.

I’m on the train now but I’ll post photos when I get home!

Mine arrived just as I started the Model F / Beamspring PCB design video - tormenting me out the corner of my eye the entire time...

I've been a naughty, I've been very busy this week had not been able to ship the gift, so I'll be only be able to ship it Wednesday, sorry !! but it'll be shipped for sure :)

So, I'll post pictures a little later today.

I will say two things as a teaser.

1. Presentation-wise: 10/10 - Really nice touch ;-)
2. I am so VERY VERY VERY confused by what I found inside.

I mean - I'm sure it will make sense to a whole bunch of people on this forum because I'm a BS² fan... but I just don't understand at all what I saw/felt in there.
