Interesting day for me . . .

So I couldnt reach any of my friends, so I went off on my own . . . took a 30min bus to BWI airport, then walked the ~1.5 miles north to the place. Surprised I didnt get lost . . . Managed to arrive around 11am.

It was definitely worth the trip. I spoke to the event organizers and they hooked me up with a display table and everything. I only had time to cram Stampy into my bookbag, and wasnt able to get it to work on the carpet, but still gave basic demos.

I also fixed up some ghetto business cards from notebook paper to hand out =P

Anyway, I also got video and pics that Ill post online when I get time (maybe tomorrow?).

The museum was pretty sweet too, with tons of electronics stuff in it. Ill have to go back again to check it all out. I hear they do battlebot competitions there, too.

Im blonde, and wore a black leather jacket with blue jeans.

I opened up the table around 12pm in the first room after the lobby.

Did you have the big camcorder with the big tripod by any chance? I was wearing a navy blue air force shirt, kaki shorts, and I have blond hair as well (I probably looked like one of the kids even though I'm a HS sophomore  lol). I wish I had known you were there, so i could have met you ;)
here are some of the pics I got-

I couldn't pass by this with out taking a picture

debugging that would be suicide
