Attending: Tony, Les, Barry, Dev, Theo and Mike.

Discussed:

  • Tony showed off some of the model cars he has been restoring.

  • Theo displayed an animation he had made.
  • Dev did a very realistic impersonation of a border patrol Alsatian sniffer dog finding illegal substances.
  • Barry said he felt old because he could remember the CDROM coming out. This of course brought forth mentions of 14.4k modems, floppy disks, tape drives….. And then on to a famous Monty python sketch!
