    Thank you everyone for coming! We apologize for the setup and miscommunication from Microsoft. We will make it better for next time, but I think the demo was pretty awesome!

      It was definitely worth the trip down there, despite the setup. Thanks for all YOUR efforts to make this happen!

    Great demo; too bad we were cramped into a little corner.

      No big deal. I was just trying to explain why I rated it a 4 instead of a 5, and didn't realize this particular comment would be captured for public display. I thought the presentation was great and was impressed with the friendly nature of the Geeks! I will certainly be back.

    This was my first meetup with Geek Girl, and I had a lot of fun! Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. Windows 8 is definitely user-friendly, but it's nice to have an orientation anyway.

    I just realized I have a class until 6:30 on Monday night. Is it ok to arrive late, or is it a closed session group?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
