    it was a very good one.

    the pizza was so good. when i took my first bite, i told myself that pizza made in burlington is really very delicious --- it must be pizza++, or pizza #. it is really very good.

    thanks a lot.

    Aperture Science??? Where's the cake? Sorry I had to leave early at the last meeting, I wasn't feeling that great. I tried to make it through at least the intros but it wasn't happening (the thought of my intro didn't help). However, I have put my blog back up http://briandm82.com and I will definitely have something for show and tell at the next meeting. I'll keep adding projects to my blog this week so if you want to see something or if you want me to work on something let me know. I was thinking of demoing an Android accelerometer and a servo for show and tell but if you want I could do a complete project of something...
