    I'm in the process of drawing up some plans for a singing Santa Claus face. When I get something good I will start a new post and hopefully have something to show by the mini as well.

    I'm still really unclear on all of the electrical aspects of lighting, power supplies etc. I would like to see somone demonstrate how to check voltage, use a multimetre etc. Just a practical session.

    Cheers

    I hope we keep the afternoon free so indivisuals can get more one on one assistance on the things they want to know as that worked very well last year and think everyone got a lot more from that than all sitting around watching presentations.

    Just wondering if there is anyone that is willing to share a room that they already have booked or wanting to share a booking over the mini weekend?
    I only started looking for accommodation today & prices are high with vacancies few & far between.
    Thanks
    Doug

    Just booked a room here http://www.woolbrokershotel.com.au $80 a night (budget rooms) only a few hundred meters from the fish markets. They also have ensuite rooms for $130

    They said they usually onlt take bookings 2 months prior to arival, but I managed to swindle my way in.

    If anyone is interested I would be happy to do a talk on building your own pixel light controllers using $15 Arduinos and custom software.

    Just realised that the mini doesn't start till Saturday arvo. Needless to say i arrive in Sydney at 7pm Friday night. So I have an extra night/day to muck up now :)

    Is there anyone that needs help on Saturday that can entertain me or anyone else around in the same boat that will be looking for something to do?
