    Honest feedback about first meeting; although I hustled to be on time at 6pm, only Lucy, the meeting leader, was on time. She was very sharp and enjoyable as we talked for almost 2 hours when others, including DestinyA arrived. Much geek chatter amongst small 2 people groups and other than introductions nothing was even started when I had to leave at 9PM, after 3 hours. The venue was nice but the noise level was a bit high, particularly because there were multiple conversations going on at the same time. Not much like an actual meeting. No pizza or meals available in the venue and after being told me MUST buy something I enjoyed a $6 brownie. It seems like a very sharp and knowledgeable group, if focuses. Also being told several times I must bring my laptop and I had screwed up and I must signup for JotHere, just to give this feedback I'm not sure if I will return. I probably will in the future if this honest feedback doesn't get me banned.

      Sorry to be so slow to respond, but we definitely like honest feedback, Larry, and hope you'll return. This wasn't a typical meeting in that our main leaders, Destiny and Bill, were trying to double up and catch part of another meeting being held in the same complex. Even though they announced that they would be late, it caused some difficulty and probably isn't something they'll try again.

      Another thing that was atypical about this meeting was that it was held at a new venue we're trying out -- and, yes, our hosts do expect patrons to buy something, but it doesn't have to be "a $6 brownie." A $2 cup of coffee would do. As for the geek speak, I let it go by me when I don't understand it. Usually I do learn something at every meeting, as I did from you at this one. After all, this is a techie group.

    Bill, thanks much for taking photos and videos at my party Sunday http://1.JotHere.com/MELucy­ . I'd love to get access to them asap for a New Year's letter I'm sending to family and friends. Can I talk with you about that at this meeting? Please click "Reply" on this thread.
