I really want to go to this one.
Grumpy_Mike will be showing his hexome here, in case you have not seen it:

Yes, I saw Grumpy_Mikes thread about his cool looking hexome, I'm looking forward to seeing it for real at the faire. I had a chance to visit Mikes stand last year and I was very impressed. In fact there were many great stands last year, here's some photos my friends took:

Wow, I definately do not want to miss that! I was not really sure what it would be like, but all the photos look SO cool!

Just as a teaser, there is something I am planning to show that I have not yet finished yet.
Physically it is the biggest thing I have done, and involves a medieval design musical instrument and 10 scrap CD drives.

It depends on if I can get it working (or part working) and the paint dry before Friday.   ;)

Grumpy_mike, I don't suppose you know where will your stand will be, do you? That is one of the parts that I really do not want to miss! I will be interested to see your latest project, if it does get finished on time!  XD XD XD

no what happens is that you show up and they tell you then. I have requested somewhere quite but I am not very hopefull as the whole place is normally very noisy.

Ah well, I'll have a good look round anyway.
I could try and find somewhere quiet, and start looking there.    : )

I will be going this year. Can't wait. Going up with a gang from London Hackspace. Would be nice to meet some of you guys if you are going too.

Yeah, I'm sure we can meet up either during the day or for a drink after ;) Are you guys up for both days or just the Saturday?

Grumpy Mike has a stand I'm sure he wouldn't mind us using it as a meeting point.

There will be.

The guys and girls from oomlout and sonodrone will be there again this year. John will be showing of his UK101 computers again and probably have some Arduino stuff.

I have only managed to get 5 strings going on my harp player. Does anyone know any simple well known tunes that use only the notes F to C in one octave. A MIDI file would be even greater.
Alternatively, a tune where the majority of notes in this range will do as the computer MIDI sound can fill in.

I am setting off for Newcastle in about an hour but I should have internet connections tonight.

Cheers
