When I received my nerdkit for a late Christmas present I was ecstatic. I laid out the parts. I realized I was missing the crystal oscillator, one of the yellow LEDs, yes I'm aware there are easily found replacement parts but still. I’m a little put off by nerkits for now.

I would be happy to send you a yellow LED if you like.

Actually, I thought I didn't have the crystal at first as well. I was looking for something about 5 times taller when I realized it was that tiny little metal can. I have ten more just like it now, just in case I lose it again.

Well I just ordered a few more LEDs thanks though; I also was confused about the size of the oscillator so I thought I didn't get one.

Hi Punkrat,

Glad you figured out the oscillator issue. Our parts come from different suppliers, and sometimes they just run out of a certain part and we have to find a suitable replacement. Sorry about the confusion.

I'm sorry about the LED oversight. I just sent you an email suggesting ways we can replace the missing part for you.

Rick, thanks for the kind words. We do make customer service our number one priority, but it is you and the rest of the NerdKits community that really complete the educational experience.
