The snippet below came across the PCUG group.

Would a specific 'bring and tell' night work @ CLUG?
I'm thinking "lightning talks" from as many people who'll contribute.

If Mikal is in town and can make time to create a talk, I'm sure he's
got a lot of non-obvious stuff at home.
Ditto Bob Edwards.

Andrew Janke drops a lot of interesting snippets about his work env.
And a couple others of you who mention interesting stuff you've got/do
at home.

And that active 'Makers' community would have a lot to share...

> [*] Thursday 13 May 2010. Gadget Night with Mike Dinn.
> Mike Dinn will demonstrate an array of gadgets which can be used to
expand the use of a computer. Most are relatively cheap and he will
describe over 30 items which he will have on show. If you have a novel
or specially useful item, Mike invites you to bring it along and join in
the fun. Let Mike know at the start of the presentation and you'll get 5
minutes or so to demonstrate it.
