Thanks, in particular, to everyone who gave me help and suggestions regarding my Teensy project. I am hoping to organise another event at the same loca...

I can bring an old Projector along - it's a Panasonic AE100E. It's not very bright, but it will be better than nothing. I have a usb c hub with HDMI out on it, will bring with me. Brilliant!

Re: ABUG SOUTH 1 to 3 June 2018 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD

In terms of extensions, if you have both, please bring both. But I think long leads are likely to be the more important. It is a big square room, with power points only on the walls. I don't yet know how we will lay out the room, but as the number of people is fewer than I had hoped for, we will hav...

As we still have places available, I just mentioned the ABUG meetup in the Dragon FB group, as a lot of them seem to also be into beebs as well......

Hope this was ok to do.....

It's a part-time Crown Court judge. The key points to understand is that everyone now needs to refer to my as 'Your Honour' and I have the power to sentence people to very long prison terms.
