Long distance travelers include Oblivas from the Nard, Pisto from FL, Cindy from DC, Furry from Chicago, Sister Artemis from the Oregon coast, just to name a few. So if you're local to PDX, get your butt down and show these people some fucking respect.

After party will be at the Nite Hawk, Rosa Parks and Interstate Ave. They pour good there.

We'll try to have some food and drinks but to be honest Dr Jenn isn't showing up this year and we're not nearly as organized as she is. But we'll try.

Sunday there will be a brunch hosted by Oblivias (I can hear her scream now, no, she's not picking up the check, who do you think she is, Fukui?) at the Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel downtown where she's staying because she's too good for the Comfort Suites near the airport.

THIS SATURDAY in PDX will be happening the PDX WonkMeet, once described by Our Dear Editrix as the best WonkMeet ever, but don't expect that much this year, it's fucking hot out.

ANYWHOS, we're gathering at Peninsular Park in North Portland (Albina and Rosa Parks) so get your cute little hinny down there and look for the WonkMeet flag. Activities start around 11am and go until we're tired of it and want to get somewhere air conditioned, so like about 3-4pm.

Listen friends I need your help. I'm deeply attracted to these various kinds of enclosures and have a deep need to buy them and instal LCD screens and big click-y knobs and such in them... but I don't know what the heck I want to build.

I'm in danger of just getting one and "figuring it out later" this is madness.

I gotta find the right project!

Maybe some kind of obscure calculator? #electronics , #projects , #help , #enclosures

We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teacher, leave them kids alone

Holy fuck balls shit, this is what the MAGAts are saying.

Somehow this feels like a wholesome moment in a streaming dystopian netflix series. But it's in our world now.😂
