Windows 10 on Raspberry Pi 2

Apparently, later in 2015, those who have signed up for the Windows Developer program will be able to get Windows 10 for Raspberry Pi 2 for free.

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.

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.

Got a Raspberry Pi today

After the last meeting I ordered a Raspberry Pi, SD card and WiFi dongle. They came today. Had a little issue getting it to display but the web came to my rescue. See my post in the Raspberry Pi forum.

Plugged in an ether net cable and it was immediately through the router and on the web.
