If it's in L.A. then I might go.  Depends on which freeway and how's the traffic.  :)

Hey guys,

Things got a little busy for me (work/personal) and we were unable to finalize anything for spring.

We'll be aiming for winter, just like last year. Looking into either the same venue, or something larger.

If you're interested in seeing what the meetups are like, here are some photos from the last MKC/LA Meetup

A bit random, but is anyone here in the Los Angeles area and would be interested in doing some desoldering? I have cash/paypal. I messed up my first build and I need to fix a stabilizer bar that wasn't properly installed. I tried desoldering, but I can't seem to figure it out and I'm scared of damaging by board. Would rather pay someone to help me do it at this point than risk it.

Yeah would really like to know that this is locked down before we drop the money to fly across the country. We need to buy flights soon before prices spike.
