Watch out for the MiB.  Talking about building a fusion reactor could attract the attention of No Such Agency and I don’t think they would be interested in joining the LUG.  The weather in Nottingham isn’t known for being hot but I wouldn’t trade it for a holiday in GTMO.

Good to have you on the list.

There is good cross-over for what we do. We do use a lot of electronics
and 'made-thingies' for computing. Unless that is you go Babbage-style
or Turing-theoretic-style or recreate Logopolis! ;-)

There's lots of scope for added interest.

Similarly so, the Hackspace people are very welcome over at our meetups
on Thursdays. (We might even get ahead to give more than a few days
notice of what we're spontaneously doing! :-) )

Good to keep in touch and connected.

Note that we certainly like our beers (hence the venue) but non-beer
drinking people are equally very welcome!

And 'tis good that Nottingham supports a few good geekie groups. There
may be hope for high tech yet!

Speaking of which:

Our next talk is on making and controlling your own garage fusion
reactor. And on why the "big boys" are using different much more
heavyweight tech instead. (There's only one medical source reactor using
this tech that I know of.)

Note, this is NOT one for your kitchen table for obvious reasons!!!

All welcome,
