Be there, or be... elsewhere.
No, really, it'll be fun.

Sadly, I shall be elsewhere. Probably asleep on the couch -- it's been way too long a work day.

Heh. Looks like we might not take over the whole cafe, this time. ;)

Cool!

We had a pretty good turnout for an unstructured meetup which sounded like lots of Maker folks weren't going to get to. As expected, we did not take over the whole cafe, but I did see four new faces (well, at least new to me) -- Jon, Steffin, Wayne, and Adam. The "first Bob" showed up again (Obi-Bob here on the forum), as well as Nick, Jude, Jim, Michael, Krista, and me (Theo).

We discussed Spoonapults, Trebu-Foshays, LED photo-mosaic Peggy-driven video frames, pyrotechnics, cobbling together PCs from old parts for homemade CNC, CAD... crème brûlée... uh... surgery... and beer & stuff.

If I missed anybody, my apologies; y'all just jump in if there's more to add. Cheers! :D

I wish I could've been there.

I got last-minuted to California by my company this morning. I am sitting in literally the dead center of Silicon Valley and I have the slowest network connection on the planet.

My internet access from Tunisia was at least twice this fast. It's ridiculous.

I'll be back in time for next week's meeting, though.

Sorry I couldn't be there. I was attending a Minnesota Woodworker's Guild meeting. I learned more than I thought possible about shellac.

Great seeing some of you at the science museum for make:day.

I was missing not being there, but hopefully I will have some new toys next week.
