Next Meeting: April 30, 2010

Our next meeting will be held at 6:30pm on April 30, 2010, at HobbyTown. (Note the new earlier time!)

We've finally got our meeting schedule in order! From now on, we'll be meeting regularly on the second and fourth Friday of each month, at HobbyTown, at 6:30pm, with any exceptions announced right here (and on our Google Calendar).

Last meeting, Frank showed us how he'd got his parallel-port AVR programmer working, and Joe borrowed my USB-based AVR programmer to try out at home. This time, we'll continue sorting our donated supplies, start stripping an old laser printer, and talk about our personal projects.

Next Meeting: April 16, 2010

Our next meeting will be held at 7:00pm on April 16, 2010, at HobbyTown.

This meeting, we'll finally have some proper storage, so we can organize and inventory the new stuff we received two meetings ago. Also, Joe picked up some parts and supplies, and Frank has been playing with AVR chips and learning how to program a bootloader, and I've been to a few tech-themed local events lately, including a robot competition and an engineering expo for high school students. We'll discuss all this and more at this Friday's meeting, please come join us!
