18 01 2016

Last minute trial of our possible mid-month meeting location The Arleston Inn.It worked out very well with 7 of us braving the cold and snow at short notice, food and drink were excellent . SDR(software Defined Radio) show and tell was the topic of the meeting using a few DVB-T dongles for the demo. A couple of intrepid members bought one to experiment them selves more available at next meeting (28th of Jan) see you there.

January meeting 28/1/2016  meeting up at  7pm for 7.30 start @ Cock Hotel Wellington

  • RHEL/Centos experience talk by Angelos

Christmas Outing

13 12 2015

The Christmas season has started out well with the SLUG Christmas do we had 10 turn up from both Shropshire and Wolves LUGs. Many thanks for com20151212_231140ing along, especially those who had travelled quite a distance to get to Wellington. The Cock Hotel provided an excellent range of beers as usual which got the chatter going both of geeky and gossip variety :).

Second location of the night was the Taj Mahal Indian restaurant who looked after us very well and the food was excellent every one had a nice time some of us even got Tux themed ice creams for sweet yum yum….see you all next year :)


November Meeting review

13 12 2015

Unfortunately the Greek Gods had forsaken us and Angelos was unable to deliver his talk. However we had several of the first batch of Raspberry Pi Zeros robed of magazines and from CPC orders. Project development and progress reports filled in the gaps with at least 5 projects currently under way. Plans for next years balloon tests and Christmas meet up kept us all busy. Hope to get Angelos back soon for his (hopefully enhanced) talk.

Usual time 7.00pm, usual place Cock Hotel Thursday 26th of November

October Meeting Review

31 10 2015

Thanks to Lee who is currently replete in frequent talker miles :) for an informative talk on Motion the camera motion analyser software. With Many dozens of options and tuning parameters it can be daunting for beginner and expert alike as  Lee and the group found out in demo when forced to use a random USB camera for the demo. The demo became a live debug with the group chipping in “advice” fortunately  after sometime Lee noticed  he had left the VLC attached to the camera, corrected his school boy error and got Motion all fired up.


Thanks to all those who turned up, we had a good turn out of 15 members, many of which were new recruits, so many that we couldn’t get them all in shot and the room was pretty much full !!


Success viewed in the SLUG ‘Portal’
