Project name: Tah: Open Source BLE Arduino-compatible Board
Back to crowdfunding page.
2021-07-03: I re-created this page on my self-hosted web server.
2015-04-19: I got the bill from FedEx too: value added tax: NOK 144.- handling charge: NOK 120.- which is a total of NOK 264.-. The tah istelf cost me USD 39.- which is about NOK 303.- at current rate. So now this little project has a total cost of about NOK 567.-
2015-04-10: the package got delivered to my work. It is a nice cardboard box, with the logo and "tah.io/start" written on. Inside is the Tah board.
2015-04-09: I got a text message from Fedex - they've tried to deliver a package to me while I was at work. Later during the day I called the Fedex service centre and had them change delivery address to my work address. FedEx' own tracking looks like this:
