I'll be there on Sunday along with a few the very well received 'Cyntech deluxe Raspberry coloured cases' and some accessories - available via our online store http://shop-cyntech-co-uk.myshopify.com/

Checking with SWMBO as a possible family day out. She wants to visit Bletchley so the timing is perfect.

What's the situation with small kids 6,4 and 2? Is it OK for them to be in the Jam.

If going would I register as 5 or just 2 adults.

I'll make an executive decision and say that your children are young enough not to need tickets :-)
Hope you can make it....

Permission received.
See you Sunday. I'll do the registration tomorrow at work.
If I get time on Saturday evening I may finish my Arduino controlled by a webserver hosted on Raspberry Pi.

I've it working with my computer as the web server so need to install LAMP on the Pi and test it.

It was great being at the Third Jam. Thank you Peter and the team for organising it.
The how to solder session by Peter was great. Ends up I've been doing it wrongly.

I brought along a Raspberry Pi controlling an Arduino over the network using a web server with php and mysql installed on the Raspberry Pi. A fair few people were curious as to how it worked.
With the cobbled together servo controlled flag (OK, a re-purposed cardboard catapult, chop stick and paper flag) surprised some people when it moved or just fell apart. . Note: small screws in cardboard isn't a great way to hold things together.

I spent about an hour talking about it so missed the chance to ask others about their very interesting work. Looks like I will have to make a return visit.

Again, thank you and a great Jam.
