Fest west is only a few weeks away! Looks, like there will be at least a couple prizes! Some good presentations, and hopefully a good time to spin ideas, and share our 4A adventures.

Speaking of Fest West...

 

Does the Library have WiFi?  It would be nice to have our TI's online during the get together.

I know there is wifi, but I wouldn't expect TI devices like esp chips, uds-10, or TIPI to work with terms of service portals typically found on public wifi.

But I'm sure we can make something else happen. Worst scenario, we use my phone as a hotspot.

Those ToS-first portals typically remember you by authorizing your interface's MAC address after you accept the ToS. You may be able launch lynx from within the TIPI to get satisfy this step. Heck, maybe even from lynx running in a TIPI telnet session? :)  If this doesn't work, you could just ssh in on your Linux laptop with X forwarded back to your display, and run Mozilla to do it.

I can test this out at the Hillsboro Library ahead of FestWest if you want because they have the same thing. doing this with TIPI is something I want to be able to do for when I have to travel. The hotel I stay at back east has this sort of WIFI access.

Please pardon me for my not update the location on April 28th. So you are not plan to set up at The Lion Hotel in Woodland ? You changed a new location to Vancouver, WA Public Library , is that right ? What is the address at that public library ? Downtown Vancouver or outside somewhere ?

Correct, as stated in post-#1. We will be at the "Vancouver Community Library"

That is the branch location's formal name. But I guess maybe that can be confusing. Here is the address:

901 C St, Vancouver, WA 98660

Why move from Lion Hotel to this public library instead ? Any reason why ?

I'm trying to establish a free, repeatable venue. I'd like the event to be sustainable.

Working with a hotel involves making sure they make some money off of us... It wasn't free to the attendees.

This is like Vancouver User Group here in Vancouver Washington.

 

It use a Emergency Rescue Public room.

 

Free is a good price to keep a group going.

Thank you for clear up. Just wonder if anyone will bring their prototype 99/8 into our Fest West 2018 ? I know it had been debated before .... (shh...)

Omega suggested we have a "Flying Shark" contest at the gathering... so we'll make that happen.

Bring your own joystick! 

Your scores could be severely affected using an unfamiliar joystick.

I remember back in the 80's I got set up to fail with a bad joystick.  I crashed and burned, it wasn't pretty, but Ted never laughed so hard.
