Hey everyone,

Just checking this out for the first time. Looks interesting. I should be able to make the meeting tomorrow and find out what this is all about.

Welcome! Tomorrow night should be a low-key meetup, with discussion of wacky ideas, brews, miscellaneous interesting parts & components, and an absolute minimum of drama & procedure. ;)

sounds great.

I haven't done much since school (2 years ago), but I want to get into doing DIY projects with microcontrollers and other small electronics projects. I've seen a lot of cool things out there like the guy who built a device that sends out a tweet on twitter when the wash machine was done.

I have some other ideas of larger projects I'd like to work on, but I doubt that I would have enough free time to complete them.

I did a bunch of stuff with data aquisition controllers, building circuits and writing programs back in college. Just looking to get back into that kind of stuff.
