For December's meeting, Mike Umbricht is going to give a talk about the recent historic preservation work that has happened at the Ladd Observatory at Brown University. They've been rebuilding the telescopes, pendulum clocks and telegraph system to their original 1890s working conditions. This is the kind of stuff that Steampunk wishes it could be. This should be a really cool talk about some very old tech.
ATTENTION!!! NEW LOCATION!!! NEW TIME!!!!
Agent5 has offered up The Brain Tank as a place for us to meet. We're going to try it out in December and see how everyone likes it. It's not as centrally located as AS220, but it has ample free parking and allows us to have a later start time, which will hopefully allow more folks to make it to the meeting after work.
Since there's no bar from which to buy beer, we'll be free to BYOB. Since our extra funds aren't going to be going to the bar, show your support for The Brain Tank by taking a rummage in your misc electronic parts bins and bring some parts you aren't using.
Date/Time: Dec 1, 2010 - 1830-2000
