Anyone want a free hybrid switch Commodore Amiga? I have 50+ and don't want any of them. They're these boards. http://imgur.com/a/RwY2W

Here's an idea for those who will be in town for more than a day: Does anyone want to get dim sum? I think that'd be a lot of fun. Good way to chat and chill for a while. I think there's a few of us who are going to be in town for a couple of days before and after the actual meetup on Saturday.

You'd school me, my offense is pretty weak because I normally play doubles and I prefer defense. I'm better at scoring with a 2 bar than I am with a 3 bar.  :))

Does attempting a catch and having the ball hit me count as wild ****?

I just need to Kendama every once in a while, I think I've only picked mine up a few times.

If anyone would like, I could provide musical entertainment for the event.  So far I know how to play Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Ode to Joy on the viola, and various other short folk tunes and children's songs.  I'll take requests for any other simple songs on the alto clef D major scale.  Also, I'm not very good, so it probably won't be enjoyable entertainment.
