Hi all
It's just under two weeks from our meetup in Wigan.
As well as the Raspberry Pi meetup we have The Centre for Computing History with a great selection of retro computers (including Spectrums!)
Plus Linux user groups, XBMC, Windows 8 and lots of other stuff.

We are meeting September 22nd and would love to see you there

I might come along if I can get my I2C microtroller board talking to my Pi and PWMing a 6v DC motor so that I have something to bring along...

Oh sounds interesting! Don't worry if you don't have it running there should be lots to see anyway

I have lots of video and a special podcast out later this week.

Thank you to everyone that turned up, I really enjoyed the day and I think everyone had a good time.
It was great to see young Mathew's face when we gave him the Raspberry Pi
