3D printing contest

Hi there,

I'm not sure if you have any 3D designers in your Makerspace, but if you do, we have an exciting opportunity for them. We have just launched our 3D Printed Toy Design Contest (https://pinshape.com/contests/3d-printing-kids-toys-design-challenge) and thought your members might be interested in knowing about it. We've partnered with Pixologic and Wacom for some great prizes and will be 3D printing the winning toys and donating them to the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.

Win a trip to space

Hackaday is sponsoring a contest between now and August 4, 2014. The goal is to "build the next evolution of hardware," an intentionally vague goal meant to encourage out of the box thinking and ultimate creativity. Visit their site for details: http://hackaday.io/prize/mission.

Oink Oink Pi Project


Have you ever wanted to send a quick message to your HAM radio buddies
over the air but then realized you forgot your radio at home? [Troy]
created Oinker to remedy this problem. Oinker is a Perl script that
turns emails into audio.

Great Meeting, thanks Doug and Ed.

Wow. Worth the 2 month wait. If you missed it, oh well, wait for the official announcement.

Some quick notes:

Dynamic DNS - make your dynamic IP static:

Dyndns (fomerly free, now pay) http://dyn.com/dns/

Noip.com FREE http://www.noip.com/

Many others, but this should get you started.

Most routers can auto update if there are any changes. There is also software which will do the same.
