I was thinking, which is often dangerous.
The first problem a lot of new users encounter is out of date firmware in new FEZ boards.
There are lots of cautions listed on the site, and even in the form to submit a question. But in a new users eagerness to get their new toys going they often don’t see the messages.
How about attaching a red label to the anti-static bags of all FEZ main boards telling the user the firmware on the device may be out of date, and a URL to where they can get started with the update process?
You could seal the bag with the label, insuring that the new user would not miss the message.
