Three month ago I ordered a TI Stellaris Development board (aka evalbot) for 25$, 100$ off the original price. I had no idea if it actually was going to arrive, but earlier today it did.

TI (or fedex?) apparently don't know how to handle non-ascii characters, so fedex called me this morning to ask for my real address.

Just because I have no idea what to do with it, I decided to do an unboxing, images follow.

There were two boxes inside the evalbot-box, inside the packaging box, alas there were two boxes in the box in the box.
