More pictures from today.

The first is Yaobing, holding the "desk" Bob had prepared for him.

The second is Hendrik, making sure Bob is paying attention to the cooking.

The third is the whole team.  Starting from the left and continuing clockwise:

Yaobing Deng, John Thompson, Keenan Thompson, Hendrik Leppkes, Brad Mans, Nyima, Deanna Mans, Matt Ashland, Bob Brose, John Stronczer (owner of Bel Canto Design).

Keenan is John's son.  Brad is Deanna's son.  John Stronczer just wandered by and smelled the brats.

Ok, this is a little odd but...

Bob, are you wearing Ecco sandals?  I have a pair that are the best sandals I've ever had; they look just like yours.

We spent the middle part of the day at my house.

We took a look at the lighting system I've built, using Engen.  Then we had lunch.  We took a walk and then had a competition to see who could get a colored light bulb working first.  Keenan's team won.

Pictures are here:

The guy in the orange shirt is an old friend of mine.

This one is of the team watching a Pi boot:



It went on for a while.  Gene brought it to demo what it could do with Engen.

When they left, I said it might take a week to put my system back together.  I'm encouraged that, after four hours, I'm probably half finished.

One hightlight was the fact that almost everyone was on my network and could control the lights.  This, of course, led to some confusion on the part of Engen, and a few things we can tidy up.

Hendrik and Yaobing went home with Id Pi serial numbers 1 and 2.  I think that means we're close to launch.

It's working again.  There was a lot of moaning and groaning and grunting to get here.
