    Default TASL Coffee Meeting Wednesday May 19, 2010

    Jack and myself will be at Starbuck's on Lake Boone Trail in Raleigh Wednesday, May 19 at 7pm. We have no agenda, we plan to talk about anything and get caught up. I'll try to bring an SSR4 and a Mighty Mini.

    Come join us if you can.

    The DC board that LOR had will control 4 of the Mighty mini It can handle up to 60V DC @20amps on each side of the board. More than you need tor the LED's.

    I'll be using my DMX8DC DIY controllers that I showed at the TASL meeting, and probably 2 Ren24LV's that I'm building right now. Waiting on a slow boat from China for a new RS485 dongle to test out with the Ren24LV, and so I can get it talking DMX.

    The LOR DC boards are a good choice if you want to get something already assembled. That was what Vic was using when he showed his LED star. Since it will talk DMX as well as LOR, it will mix well with other DIY DMX boards.

    Not sure I'll have business in Raleigh this week, so probably won't make the coffee meeting.

    I love the LOR DC boards, Good design...The input power can be set to control different voltages and that comes in handy when dealing with LED's.

    I'll try to make the meeting, but not sure just yet.

    I couldn't get the meeting room, so I guess we will sit out in the main room.

    How about one of the Cary locations ? One on Kildaire Farms Road. One near the Cary Mall .. probably others. I don't know if all of the others have meeting rooms, or not ?

    Or the one right off the interstate and Harrison Blvd: http://www.starbucks.com/store/12857

    Not sure where everyone else is coming from. Seems "in the middle" for South Cary, West Cary, and North Raleigh.

    I called and they don't have a meeting room, but we can gather inside or outside, depending on the weather.

    PS - I'm in!!

    Unless we come up with a meeting room at another location let's plan to meet at Lake Boone. Lots of people have met there before. I called Caribou Coffee (Raleigh) and their room is unavailable. If you guys want to call other places please do. I've called several and they are all booked. What gripes me is that the rooms are often reserved and nobody shows up to use it.

    Update: I spoke to Bruce and we might be able to use a meeting room at the coliseum (the one where they play hockey). He is going to check and let me know Tuesday. So, before you leave to come to the meeting, check here to make sure that we haven't moved it. If Bruce can't confirm by 7pm Tuesday, we will hold the meeting at Starbucks. It might be fun having it at the coliseum.
