Rapture Cafe to see Urchin at 9:00 Sunday -- Meeting Place Idea Jun. 27th, 2007 @ 02:20 pm
Ok, I know that MUD while successful had mix reactions. Some liked the place, others have not. This does not mean I have not stopped looking, and I think I found another place.

Rapture Cafe (http://www.rapturecafe.com/) is located at 200 Avenue A between 12th and 13th Streets, on the site of the former Karova Milk Bar on that venerable avenue’s northernmost stretch. It seems to have good spacing, free Wi-Fi owned by the place, independent cafe, independent library and performances/parties on certainty days.

The only possible "negative" side I can see is that some of the late night programming has gays/trans, but considering the open nature of our meeting and with a few gay/bi members: I see this as not a problem unless fist fights occur.

Coincidentally, the last debut of the movie Urchin (http://www.urchinthemovie.com/) is screening there Sunday July 1st at 9:00PM.

I am personally going to there at 8:00pm to check the place out, ask questions, and see the Urchin movie. If anyone NYC2600'ers or anyone else would like to meet up for this, please feel free to do so.

The other reason I am going there is because if Rapture is as good as it sounds, then this could be ANOTHER alternative spot for alt.coffee. Free Wi-Fi, books, coffee, space and also location as seen here:

If that is not convince I do not know what is.

So that is the low down. I hope things work out, and go Urchin!

P.S. Why every time I post here the page a splodes!?!

Computer Parts Ahoy for April's Meeting! Mar. 26th, 2007 @ 12:32 pm
Hello, Sidepocket here. You know me from the meetings and for being an asshole and if you dont...then WTF is wrong with you son!?!

Anyhow, as many have known I have lots of old computer stuff. Towers, drives and circut shit. Some were so shot after the flood in my basement I had to scrap them. Lost alot of good parts that way. My life...

Anyhow, I plan now that in each meeting, I will now be actualy usefull and bring in parts to sell.

Here is my first one: A PS/2 Type 8555. Er no, not Playstation 2. This is made by IBM.

When I get off my ass to my tool set, I will open the case and post pictures of the parts.

» It was bound to happen.

It's still a bit shaky, but I do like how it's starting out. Feedback from local nerds is required! Thanks in advance.

(I am aware that the stylesheet tends to go buggy as hell in MSIE. This isn't intentional, but perhaps I shall advertise it as a feature.)

Citigroup Fading...
» Driving NY/NJ area to DEFCON
We will leave NY/NJ area on or around July 31st. We will get a rental car and drive. No it's not cheap but we think a cross country trip would be fun. We will stop along the way as we see cool stuff along the way. We will be in Vegas in time for toxic BBQ.

It will be about $140 plus gas. If we take only 1 other person be prepared to chip in for 1/3rd in the very unlikely event we take a van instead of a full size sedan and if the other 3 people agree maybe we will consider taking a 4th person so be prepared to chip in for 1/4th of the rental and gas. Ideally if you and a friend want to go this might work out.

We do want to meet who ever might go with us. Being weird/strange is fine and in fact encouraged but if we are uncomfortable being around you sorry we rather go alone.

Please don't post sob stories we'll just laugh about them next time we drink.

Added: you will be of legal age!!! I do not want to explain to an Arizona state trooper why there is some 15 year old kid from NY in a back of a speeding car going to vegas.
