We are likely going to be in our usual room - 197 A and 197 B
Marked in red on this floorplan:
10:00 --- COFFEE
10:15 --- MULTITRACK MIDI --- CH Ting
Knowing Ting, it'll probably be Bach in Multitrack MIDI.
NOON --- LUNCH
Some folks bring their lunch, some folks go to Togos.
13:30 --- INTRODUCTIONS, ANNOUNCEMENTS, RUMORS, RANDOM ACCESS
14:00 --- COOL STUFF AT THE EMBEDDED SYSTEMS CONFERENCE --- Dave Jaffe
Dave will describe some of the cool products that
impressed him at the recent Embedded Systems Conference.
14:45 --- BREAK
15:00 --- MEETING VENUE
Cogswell suits me fine, but some might prefer TechShop and
Ting has suggested Gospel Operation International in Burlingame.
Nobody seems willing to discuss it on the SVFIG list, so we'll
talk about it at the meeting.
15:30 --- THINK OF SOMETHING FOR NEXT MONTH
This means you!
16:00 --- ADJORN

*** IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT GETTING INTO THE MEETING ***
Cogswell in cooperation with DHS, ICE and BATFFCAPB* now
secures its doors on weekends. There will be an SVFIG member
stationed at the door from 10am to 10:15am to let in recognized
attendees. If you are attending an SVFIG meeting for the first
time, please bring along a printout of the agenda to identify
your interest in Forth and gain admission. If you arrive after
10:15am, there will be a number for you to call to alert someone
of your presence at the door. The front door will also be checked
at intervals of 20 to 30 minutes to accommodate those without
cellphones. Those attempting to signal with semaphore or Aldis
Lamp will be barred from attending last month's meeting.
Do not under any circumstances let any stranger past the Cogswell doors.
Those who are authorized to be inside have key-cards.
