    Yikes ladies I double-booked my night. Today I invited the lovely Miss "Pinocc.io", Sally Carson. She's the CEO and co-founder of a nifty little microcontroller board (think Arduino-ish) that is so handy that we will all be using in some way or shape in no time. I hope she has time to attend tonight.

    I tried Installfest on my own and ran into problems (SSH-related, I think). I'm hoping someone can help me out with that.

      Yep, one of the organizers (or someone else) can help you get it sorted.
