    I think the topic was presented well. Do you know where I can find the presentation?

    Hey guys, just finished dealing with an emergency, so obviously I didn't make it. Please accept my apologies, and I will still pay the $20, just let me know how you want the money.

    Gotta cancel, have to be out of town. I'm still good for the radio, though!

      That's too bad. Well I will hold a radio back for you.

      I _think_ its the same. However, there are a variety of similarly named models out there that may not function as expected. The ones we purchased for the class have been tested and are known to work.

      I wasn't sure if you were providing one, so this is even better news, as it avoids any complications, thanks!

    What's the most stable OS/configuration for this hardware/meetup? I have Win7/OS X hardware, and XP/Linux VMs.

    • Jeff M.

      The software we will be using for the demo is Linux based. We can provide an Openbox VM of xubuntu. If you want to use some other OS, the instructor will attempt to get you up and running during the workshop.

    How about the evening of May 6th?

      I am waiting on the presenter to give me a date for the event. Based on the discussion I had with him, I suspect it will not be until later in the month.
