I had a table in Huntsville.  Pity I didn't recognize you in person or you didn't introduce yourself.

I would have been easy to find, I guarantee I was the only VE3 callsign there.

Cheers, Wayne

I spent a day and a half at the National Museum of the USAF, then went back and spent another two days. If you are going to spend only one day, check their web site first so you don't miss something. Although if you make Dayton an annual event, you can go back to the museum each year also. When I was there, they had just received the Hexagon KH-9 spy satellite, so there is always something arriving.

As I'm sure that you know from personal experience by now, you can have as much or as little as you wish of EVERYTHING.  The philosophy of churrascaria is no concept of too much.  YOU control the serving by means of a disc with RED on one side, GREEN on the other.  Green means feed me, red means no more (for now; you can flip back to green anytime.

@mhrackin: They're about the top of the food chain price-wise but excellent food.  Hope you're REALLY hungry!

I am REALLY hungry ... now (armed with your info), I'm hoping that someone else picks up the bill LOL

PS I've been looking at their online menu -- I'm drooling over my keyboad -- I hope you can get smaller portions of multiple types of meat, because I'm soooo tempted by the picahna, cordeiro, and linguica (to name but a few)!

It IS a chain with units all over the US in major cities; I guess Huntsville isn't one!  They're about the top of the food chain price-wise but excellent food.  Hope you're REALLY hungry!

@mhrackin: Are you on your way to dinner in Brazil?

I'm literally poised to walk out of the door -- I'm going out with a couple of the conference organizers to a Brazilian Steakhouse called Fogo de Chao – I looked it up on the web (it might be a chain) and the food sounds fantastic (www-DOT-fogodechao-DOT-com-DOT-br)

@GSKrasle: Just use something like a tack hammer and record the sound.  I suspect some of the other (eerie) effects can be found on the internet in appropriate formats.

I'll be more than happy to make any plans and any code freely available. I'm already planning a blog on how to control the meters from the MCU (in general terms) -- then later blogs can have the code I use for the clock.

One thing you have made me think about is that the code should be written in such a way as to facilitate swapping one meter for another (this might be trickier than you think if the meters have a non-linear resoponse ... hmm, food for thought :-)

There are a wealth of free soundclips that you can download in MP3 format -- and, as you say, I coudl record my own.

I've been thinking about this a lot -- maybe when I grt back from Brazil I'll write another blog with my thoughts on the effects I could use along side various operating modes...
