The 1st Saturday Sidewalk Sale stops for nothing!  It's a pretty good
sized Computer/Electronics/Junk/Hamfest-type flea-market atmosphere
that covers a bunch of parking lots in downtown Dallas the 1st Saturday
of every month.  You'll find a bunch of us Robotics types listlessly
searching there for that elusive idea-inspiring old part.


There usually are several DPRG guys down there and often a few of us
will meet at a designated point/time to chat and show off our finds.
There are sit-down places to get coffee, doughnuts, and the occasional
bratwurst.  I'm planning to try to make it down there around 9:00-sh
and would enjoy meeting you there or somewhere else.  For that matter
if anyone north of downtown needs a ride or wants to carpool to the
sale just let me know, as I travel in from the Great White North
(The Colony) I'd be glad to swing by pick you up.

To avoid short-notice scheduling changes, I think we can plan ahead
as Dan suggested and come up with a suitable calendar chiseled in
mud that will help avoid this kind of confusion.  We can coordinate
things with the Metalheads and Alan to generate a meeting schedule
for at least several months/years in advance I would think.
