@Crusty1: as I have had to buy a new laptop today, because XP is no longer being supported.

Ha:  I have a working windows98 machine.  Their are drivers that were older hardware never ported.

For me it is always about the drivers. Otherwise I would use a Mac.  I have some old ones of those too.  There is a MIDI program that works best under OS9.  Apple removed finder MIDI (Well all of real Quicktime*) from Mavericks. If it was not designed at NeXt, It was not designed by Apple. (But I digress)

*Quicktime player should be called Quartzplayer now.

Thats about as likely as getting Farther Christmas there in person with his elf.

I am in the dog house as I have had to buy a new laptop today, because XP is no longer being supported.

Should mean some of the programmes will work a bit faster. But purchase cost, lowest was the only factor.

May be I can emulate Icarus and drop in all fired up next year after a do it yourself fly past the sun. LOL

@Duane: ...A Raspberry pie with a small Adafruit LCD...

It's not the size of your LCD ... it's what you do with it that counts LOL

So, can I take it you will be joining us on Friday?

I have two Arduino Leonard-based projects, a few PIC-based projects, A Raspberry pie with a small Adafruit LCD, some FPGA projects, two game wardens, seven hunters and a cow. I might be able to chat about one or the other of those.

(Bonus points to anyone who gets the reference)

@kfield: Max, would my experience using the LilyPad Arduino (for sewable electronics) quaify me?

Well, that and the fact that you pay my wage LOL

Are you sure that you are actually sewing something in that hat -- I thought that was where you kept your secret candy stash?

Expect me if you see me Max, much as I'd love to attend, 3 AM is not when I am at my best......

Incidentally I could not get your time zone converter to work properly, here is a more user friendly one (read: friendly to old farts like me):
