Fellow Hackers, Slackers, and Code-crackers:
On Friday October 20th at 7pm PST we will be holding our monthly
official Midnight Research Labs meeting.
Happy Hackiversary MRL!!!
One year ago, we held the first "official" MRL meeting. We had a
couple unofficial MRL meetings before that, but this marks the
anniversary of the first planned/scheduled/announced meeting. I
think we've come a long way in the last year, and this last month
things have started to really take off. Thanks to everyone for
making MRL something to be part of (*sniff* *sniff* memories!).
On to the main event!
This month Mike (drifter) will be giving a mini-presentation on
VOIP technologies, and he'll also have a demo on caller-id
For the hands on part of the evening we'll be putting together
home-brew biquad 802.11 antennas. If you want me to purchase
materials for you, let me know ASAP, it's only going to be about
<$10 a person for all materials. It's about as simple as putting
together a cantenna, but it looks a whole lot cooler,
In addition to the MRL hackiversary, we'll be celebrating the
wicrawl and SEAT releases which have occurred since the last MRL
As always, anyone with cool toys, or interesting project ideas,
bring them along.
Light refreshments, pizza and beer will be served.
