HallowedThanksMas

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------

It's warming back up post hurricane Sandy, 
I expect to have a fire or two outside, 
and of course, there is always indoors.

-----UPDATED:

Thou art invited to celebrate AllHallowedThanksforEverythingMas.

WHY:    A "lets celebrate" holiday: HallowedThanksMas
         Create your own aproporiate fashion and decorations and rituals.

WHEN:   Friday, 2012-11-02 from 7pm until sometime very late.
         That is THIS FRIDAY NIGHT at 7pm.
         (some invites said 8.. whatever..)

WHERE:  1031 Lower Brow, Signal Mtn TN 37377
         Advice: Park on street and walk up the driveway.
         The driveway is for the brave and/or foolish
         Directions for the map challenged:
         Take I27 to Signal Mtn. Take the 2nd right
         past the Space Ship house onto Sunset.
         Take the first left onto Lower Brow.
         First house on the left on Lower Brow Road.
         House will be well illuminated,

WHAT:   A mostly geeky get together, but as always, there
         will be some fun and interesting not so geeky people.
         (Warning: Actual living breathing females of the species
         will be attending, bathe and dress accordingly)

WHO:     You. Yes, You.
          Add spouses, significant others and interesting
          sociable friends. Crashing in style is expected: Introduce yourself.
          The party, house and deck are not apropos for small children.

PROVIDED: Some beverages, some food, some background music.
           A great view, some chairs, some fire. Other people.
           Some people are more "Other" than Others.
           Micro-mini-rave scene on the deck...
           Feel free to plug in and be D.J.


BRING:  As much or litle as you want,
         Consider a toy to show off, an idea to share.
         A swimsuit for the hot tub?

LEAVE:  Axes to grind, bad attitudes, boring drama, fake pretension.
         (Interesting drama we can all participate in or ridicule is allowed)

=============================================================== From: John Aldrich ------------------------------------------------------ I will be there. Supposedly a female acquaintance will be coming with. 'Course she bailed on me once before and we were supposed to go out tonight when she texted me and asked to reschedule, so we'll see.

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ Y'all have fun... I will stay home and watch my axe get smaller... plus I have to get up very very early Saturday morning and head to Atlanta to pick up a revolutionary mobile device, so I need my beauty sleep Oops I said revolutionary... big brother's watching me now ------------------------------

=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ It must be an iPad Mini *- Chad W. Smith*

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ I wouldn't be caught dead with something as bergeois as an ipad mini The device I'm getting is much cooler, and should be able to run Linux (there, I'm on topic) Perhaps I'll bring it to a chugalunch show-n-tell someday... ------------------------------

=============================================================== From: Adam Jimerson ------------------------------------------------------ Now we are going to hold you to that

=============================================================== From: James Nylen ------------------------------------------------------ Implying they weren't already I probably won't be able to make it to HallowThanksMas, so I'll share my cool new toy here. I got my isostick ( http://isostick.com/ ) in the mail a few days ago. It eliminates my last use for optical media: bootable CDs. It's a flash drive that also emulates a USB CD drive and lets you choose an iso image to load into the fake optical drive. Based on the limited testing I've done so far, it works really well.
