Having spoken and had email from a few people I've suggested to blinken and
adrian that I bring along some bits and pieces of construction paraphernalia
and bounce around some ideas. After a big purge a month ago :-( I still have a
few little prototypes left; enough left to give the general idea.
Calandar now setup for 7pm this Wednesday (tomorrow!) since that's about as
early as I can get there with the stuff. Praps people could pizza beforehand
so we can get busy at 7.
Probably best to stick with wire-wrap and boxing it up and do soldering in a
week or so when Adrian has his PCB made.
If you're interested, see you there :-)
