Re: hackable consumer electronic products with ESP32 ?!?

Wow, very cool pythoncoder/peterhinch! Excellent explanation. Honored you took time to respond. Have perused your github with relish :) Vars pass value, structures pass reference. This and many other intricacies. I enjoy them all. Thanks again for your input. 8-)
