    Sure do, it was in the November meeting thread Chris started. Here we go all in one thread. /DesktopModules/ActiveForums/themes/_default/emoticons/laugh.gif
    *******************************************
    What about Thursday December 4th, 6 PM at my office again? Does that not work for anyone that wants to come.
    Please take the survey if you haven't already. Presently controllers and automation are winning, that one I should be able to add some good content. Although I will need to think about how to demo without a controller present. Obviously I can't disconnect mine.

    I'm good for the 4th. If we do any automation, I wouldn't mind learning more about auto topoff automation if anyone has done it. I don't have a controller yet, but I wouldn't mind a compare/contrast between your software and Neptune's software.

    Vegas? What is there to do in Vegas? We've got gambling right here in Iowa now! And that Riverboat puts that silly LUXOR pyramid to shame.

    Not to be a stick in the mud but 99 times out of 100, I can't make it to meetings during the week. Work schedule doesn't allow it. I work days but I get calls up until 11 pm.

    We can always think about doing an availability poll to get an idea of people's availability. I think one reason joel likes to host the meetings during the week is because he lives an hour away from DSM and we have the meetings at his work after business hours.

    New added possibility: JJ may come and talk to us about his setup. I will do the DIY automation with an aquacontroller and he will do the commercial methods. If he can make it it will be quite interesting.
    So yes, my office Thursday December 4th at 6PM.

    Dave, as long as you pack it in your suitcase you will be fine. I brought back some pieces from Maryland with not a question. They won't let you take it on board though, so put in heat packs and hope your luggage doesn't get lost.
