Discussion article for the meetup : San Diego social meet-up
As per this request, we're having a meetup on Sunday, August 14th at the K&B Wine Cellars (same as last time).
This is probably going to be primarily social rather than covering specific topics. (We're still hammering out details for the topics-based one for the last Sunday of the month.)
The locale we're using wasn't particularly picky about when we should leave last time, so I suspect we have pretty much the whole afternoon.
If you have any particular desire to use the projector, either let me know here or be sure to bring a VGA cable. (Last time theirs was missing.) And, of course, if you want to use a Mac with the projector be sure to have any adaptors you need with you.
Also, as Miciaih_Chang so kindly reminded me in the comments below, the sound system for the projector doesn't work (or possibly isn't hooked up to a speaker system in the first place). So if you want to give a presentation that depends on sound and your laptop's speakers are, well, laptop speakers, you might want to bring some speakers of your own. (If you need this but have trouble getting a hold of speakers, let me know. I might be able to borrow some from my program.)
And as last time, I politely request that no smokers attend. This was a total non-issue last time, for which my wife and I are grateful! But just to be careful, I'll repeat the request each time I put these together.
I will attend, and I can offer rides from North San Diego. I live in Poway so as long as your within 30 minutes or on the way. This is my last meetup before I go back to school in San Jose so lets make it count :)
I will attend, and I can offer rides from Lake Forest.
Dibs on that ride.
I had a lot of fun last time, but somehow magically managed to miss out on all the Singularity-type discussions. Or at least, I thought I did. Should make it a goal to talk with someone savvy enough on the topic.
Also, I think the lack of speakers for the projector should be in the original post too; just in case someone wants to show a video too and for some ~mysterious~ reason the laptop speakers aren't loud enough.
Ah, good point! I had totally forgotten about that. Thank you! I'll edit that point in.
Ok, I will pick you up at the same time and place as last time.
I'll be there!
