Hi Allan: I hope to see you on Sunday. The fact that your grandfather was a Freemason is interesting. Perhaps you can tell us a little bit about him when we are together. I look forward to it. Best, John
I would absolutely love to, but I live four hours away, sold my car for extra cash (only need the bus to move around town), and can't afford to visit due to working and school. Once I transfer, hopefully to the L.A. region due to having a multitude of friends living down there now, I should be able to attend these type of meetings and be more active. I live in Visalia, CA and not many people are into tech. Those that are aren't organized enough to start a group such as this.
Not sure what the best way to reply to your greeting, but no I haven't really. Always been interested in robotics and hardware but never gotten around to it. Then I saw that video of Arduino being used to get snail mail arrival notifications and got me interested in it again. I'm going to be grabbing a board soon + playing around with it. Figured I'd find a good meetup too and see what I can learn :)
Welcome to LA UPA, Allan. Looking forward to meeting you.
Hey, thanks for joining!
