    wen I try to read all this code to try to learn how to understand it ,I just get so confused and have to stop reading ,I have so many Browser bookmarks ,and so many repeated ones it useless ,I have to delete them all and start over right now !
    I can usually figure out what a "block" of code does, but a lot of times I have no idea how it actually does what it does? For me that's usually not all that big of a deal, I know where to put it in my code to have it do its thing. It's when I want to change what it does that things get tricky.

    I hadn't planed on ordering anything for a while but the PICO Breakout Garden Base was showing, 1 in stock. And I've been wanting one since they announced it. It was showing as "coming soon" for what seems like forever? I also wanted a BME280 or BME680 but they were out of stock, so i went with the new BME688. So far just an ordered received e-mail. I'll know tomorrow if I snagged the last PICO Breakout Garden base. I would have ordered this instead of the Explorer Base if it had been in stock.

    yea, when in school i had to pay attention in class because verbal learning is the only way I remembered anything on test day! I'll have to search google for some verbal code classes
    No more Pimoroni ordering for me ,unless I really need something once I get started doing things with the hardware Items I have now ! enjoy!

    In case your wondering why I ordered the Mote Module Cables. I plan on using them for power cables. They have heavy gauge power wires in them. 22 AWG power lines for low voltage drop. I'll cut them in half and pigtail (solder) them into the cable from my 5V 10A Power supply.
    5V 10A switching power supply : ID 658 : $29.95 : Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits
    I'm also planning on replacing the barrel jack with this for my portotyping rig.

    One 10A 5V supply for multiple Pi's. I should be able to run at least 4 PI 3B+'s at any one time. I'll have plugs for 5 devices and likely will have 5 connected.

    Just got the order shipped so it looks like I finally snagged a Pico Breakout Garden Base. I got the last one, its showing "out of stock" now.
    Hurry up and wait time again, lol. I'll get a free PICO with it so that kind of makes up for the wait. I have way more PICO's than I need now though. I have 9 now and this new one will make it 10. And a Tiny 2040.

    They are just USB cables with nice thick power wires. I can just cut them in half and get two Micro USB power cables. I'll just leave the data wires unconnected.

    I was hoping this would happen, it's the same screen that's on the PICO Explorer Base. Wish it would have happened before I placed my last order though.
