Blackpool LUG Meetings 26/05/2012 to 30/06/2012

It’s been a busy few weeks for the LUG, so lets recap.

Raspberry Pi XBMC


Les setup his Raspberry Pi with XBMC and was able to watch Iron Man 2.

Windows 8


Mike showed off Windows 8 on one of the many spare machines that he has. To be honest, it wasn’t that bad, but it is quite clear to see the many Linux influences present in the latest Windows release.



Crawford showed how you can make a game using this popular application.
In a similar vein to Scratch, you are able to create basic video games. Great fun!

3D Printer
