There's a slight possible chance that I may or may not be there, perhaps.

Joe,
Thank you for that clear concise description of the possibility and the likelihood that that you could be or not be there. We might look or not look to see if we can figure out if there or not there. Have you ever thought or not thought about running or not running for office? Because with this kind of level of commitment or non commitment I think you would be or not be very good or not good at it.
John

Works great, as in for communicatin', for chattin', etc. Of course an Amateur Radio Operators license is a plus.

I won't be there, have a project going. I did buy an old Dell computer cheap there about 4 years ago. Already to go, was online about 10 minutes after I got home with it. It's my Echolink Node box now.

First of the season, this weekend! (And every third sunday in following months)

http://www.mitflea.com/

Was there really no activity last year in this thread? Eesh.

I didn't make it to too many last year. The ones I did go to were rather boring. At the last one that I went to, I lost a stubby BNC antenna which was passed on to me through family. Here's to having a better season, hopefully! I will definitely be there this weekend, possibly selling.

This is also the first flea that doesn't coincide with Marathon weekend.

We'll also be celebrating the fact that John M is still amongst us.
