Very well done indeed Sir's.

One comment, to the CNSP team.

Considder puting a full international dialing code phone number (+1 408 
...  or 001 408 ...) on the next one, just in case.   Not just a US only 
phone number (408 ...)

Also full (http://www. etc) website addresses, and full email address 
perhaps too.  & Posably a postal address (again, full international 
format, not just a zipcode and name) too?

Don't assume it'll land next to someone who knows what it is, or more 
importantly where it came from, or that they would know how to recreate 
the correct contact details from the generic USA format on the box.

Perhaps also in a few select non english languages (as well as English.)  
French & Spanish would ge good choices consdering the likley landing 

Make it easy for the finder, and there's a much better chance of it 
getting reported, or even returned.

73, and seasons greatings to all.
