This was an interesting meeting. We had 3 Raspberry Pi computers. One we hooked up via a internal router and accessed remotely. One was hooked up to a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and we showed how to get python idle up, load a python game on the computer, and run it. Someone explained how he tried the raspberry pi, adruino, and ? boards to get various readings. He explained a lot of the background for his project, and why he wasn't able to get the readings he needed. Several suggestions were given by attendees to possibly help his project along.Oh yes, we had a real raspberry pie to eat. It was delicious!

Well that was interesting... not! (quoting Wayne's World). Re: the gentleman in the back of the room. He had the coolest Pi setup. I'd loved to have heard more about connecting to his Arduino, or connecting to the various sensors and gizmos he had. You know, a rasberry pi lesson in expansion via devices? The hour long + doctorate chemistry lesson was interesting. I really felt I could get into that discussion, but tonight wasn't the place for it. Typically, we don't have long to make a presentation and move on to another member. It is usually around 6:30-8:30. This was a chemistry discussion for exactly half of the meeting (7:30-8:30...+?).
I think we missed out on something really cool tonight. I'd rather he switched tracks back to the Pi and showed us how he used it.
Instead it was:- background on why I needed a pi- chemistry lesson and theory- explanation why he cannot use the pi.
That was pretty selfish if you ask me.

sorry, with all the ranting I forgot to thank our host for bringing an actual Raspberry Pie for desert. That was so cool.
Ok everyone, I just found out family will be in town sooner than I expected so I won't be able to make it at all, sorry.

I'm signing up, but I might have to leave early as I have family coming to town for the holiday weekend.

Just wondering if I should bring my monitor/keyboard/mouse with my pi or is someone else bringing them?

I would bring them.
Asimov fans will know what "Rob-Lock" is. I'm experiencing that right now for Pi Projects. I have so many thin project threads to follow, thin on money and instructions that I'm not certain what direction I want to take my Pi.
