So how was the meeting?

I found it would be 2am by the time I got home on the Downeaster.

Maybe for the August meeting I'll find a campground and drive down.

That's too bad there is not practical public transportation for
an evening commute.

The meeting was good. One member brought in a self-balancing robot
that was PIC based. He used the controller from his fire-fighting robot
to quickly prototype a new machine.
We brain-stormed the projects other people were working on.

Here are some links that I posted after the meeting. Most of
the links are to things that I discussed with various members.
