Since a circuit layout tutorial would probably take most of the meeting it
may be better if there was a separate meeting for this topic.
I would be happy to discuss circuit board layout in general and I could go
through an example in gEDA (probably the drawdio circuit that is on my
I have not installed the gEDA tools or my parts library on my new laptop
yet and it may be a few weeks before I get around to it. The gEDA tools
run best in Linux and also run in MAC. If you are on windows I would
recommend getting a copy of VMware and running the tools in a virtual
machine. My Vista laptop is setup with VMs for ubuntu and fc10.
Here are some links to gEDA tutorials and information ---

all EDA files) is at http://wiblocks.luciani.org/remix/index.html

Are there any specific topics planned for upcoming meetings? ?I'd love to learn more about laying out circuits and having them made up. ?I'm tired of working with stripboards...
