    Hi all
    After the failed attempt at getting a full on mini organised it's been decided that a meet and greet is the go. This will be held at Gerrys place ( http://auschristmaslighting.com/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=6095 ) in Surrey Hills in Melbournes eastern suburbs on Saturday 8th of August 2015.
    There will be no formal schedule but the plan is to talk about the main sequencers including LOR, LSP, Xlights 4 and Vixen 3. The controllers there will include Raspberry Pi's, Beaglebone Blacks, J1Sys controller, my controllers and probably others. Lights will include P10 panels, pixel nodes and strips and some fairy lights.
    There will also be multimeters, soldering irons, crimpers, cable strippers and various other tools there.
    1 of the guys with a 3D printer might bring 1 along and demo if they could (hint hint)
    If you can make it and would like to turn up then post in here so we can get numbers. I'm sure Gerry will post some further info in here.

    Thanks for the venue and organisation Gerry.

    That's great Andrew,

    When you come , would you be okay to discuss network security for a show setup ?

    As an example , I am planning this year to have a separate show network to the home network with wifi (separate thread) , but am puzzled as to why I should set it up that way and what it achieves or does not achieve (eg security , access points , multicast) . Hopefully by then , I will have the two Falcon players (PI and BBB) talking to each other via multi synch and the ability for people to have text (eg names) play on it in real time demonstrated , but I don't wish to be hacked in Dec if I can help it...

    hi All,

    My wife is going to cook us some lunch . Is there anyone who does not eat meat ? Or cannot eat something specific , then please PM me.

    Whilst folks are welcome at any time , perhaps 9 am for a 9.30 start ? We will of course wait for Alan.

    Is there anyone attending who would be able to demo Vixen ?

    Anyone else coming ?
