Allow me to introduce myself briefly

I work as a software engineer, with a background also in electronics. Once upon a time, in a universe far far away I was a child who like many others played with Lego, and put a Lego motor in some of my model cars and lorries.

When I saw the Lego NXT article in February's Wired magazine I saw the toy that I wished I had as a little boy!

Readers of the NXT STEP may have noticed my comments from time to time; often complaining that the UK (like the rest of Europe) has to wait until September or later for pre-ordered NXT kits to ship.

Well I have been very lucky, and received a NXT Educational kit on Friday: strictly speaking a bundle of the Educational kit, a charger and the software.

Very lucky indeed that the distributor used one of their limited supply to complete my order, rather than to send it as a partial consignment to a school or college that had ordered lots of kits for their classes.

I have mentioned previously, in a comment, that Lego have a tool to find the educational distributors for each country:

I cannot promise you will be so lucky, schools & colleges in Europe have placed lots of orders and teachers and techicians are trying to get the NXT kits ready for the new school term in September.
