Closed for Canada Day (July 1st)

Well now. When we told you to "drop by and say hello" while we were at the Vancouver Mini-Maker Faire, we weren't expecting that big of a turnout. It seems like half the people in attendance were there just to see us. We were thrilled to meet so many of you, and although we were constantly busy, we enjoyed spending a bit of time to chat. If you were there and somehow missed us, we have PROOF! Chekkit out (you can see us at the 2:35 mark):

In other news, tomorrow is Canada Day. Being that we are, in fact, Canadians, we'll be doing our patriotic duty by slacking off all day with the rest of our fellow countrymen. And to celebrate the 144th anniversary of our creation, we'll use 144 hockey sticks to eat 144 pounds kilograms of Canadian bacon, before wiping our mouths on 144 beavers and washing it all down with 144 gallons liters of maple syrup. We call the whole thing the Great Canadian Bacon-Beaver-Maplethon 5000 (alternatively, for our French Canadian compatriots, "Le petit-déjeuner grande de castors et de nombreuses traduction de Google. Pamplemousse."). It's a pretty packed schedule, and as a result Solarbotics will be closed Friday, July 1st. Afterwords we'll apologize for the inconvenience and a bunch of other things that you didn't think needed to be apologized for, then head back to our igloos to get back to work on Monday the 4th. At this point our pals in the US will be celebrating their Independence Day, which as a polite and considerate Canadian I must refrain from joking about in the same manner that I lovingly jest about my own country. But Canadian or American, either way you look at it, you're about to start a long weekend. EVERYBODY WINS!
