10:00  --- COFFEE

Please note that CH Ting has been called away and will not be able to attend.

      We need to discuss ways to rev up the monthly meetings and start thinking
about Forth Day!  Perhaps we'll discuss the pros and cons of alternate venues.
How can we institute outreach to hobbyists,  students,  and robot builders?

11:00  --- FORTH ON THE INTERNET  --- All
      We'll flip through a few back issues of Forth Dimensions, look 
around the
Webring,  Google "Forth" and generally poke around,  provided the Internet is

Some folks bring their lunch, some folks go to Togos.


14:00 ---  Interesting Items - Volume 7 --- Dave Jaffe
Dave will continue his survey of interesting newly-introduced
microcontrollers, I/O peripherals, sensors, products, and
gadgets that can provide useful and unique capabilities to
Forth embedded systems. If anyone has come across
anything that fits this category, pass them along to him
for inclusion in his presentation.

14:32 --- BREAK

15:00 ---  Part 1 of DVD  "The Fairchild Chronicles"
We may just chat instead of watching this,  but it might make for a worthwhile
use of our time in lieu of actual content.

16:00 --- ADJORN
