TingARM - CH Ting

TingARM Project - Since Ting will be providing our lunchtime nutritional sustenance, we're also hoping he will sustain our love of Forth through his presentation of further developments of his TingARM project.

Digital Oscilloscope Project Update - "I got the prototype PCB back and have all the surface mount parts installed. However, nothing seems to work yet. I will keep on probing these boards and report whatever I will find at the meeting."


Lunch - BBQ lunch courtesy of CH Ting
