Off course you should join us Ted.  This is an open event for people
interested in CAD and CAD tools.  I should be there a bit after 6PM, I'll
set up the hackitorium big screen for presentations and demos until 8, then
work on the machines until around 10 or 11pm.

I'll set up the PA and the projector.  We have a projector umbilical with
almost every dongle imaginable on it available for video output from your
laptop.  I don't have live streaming running well yet but, if someone's
able to set up a huddle with Coreyfro, that would be great.
