I encourage all the cooks we can fit in our kitchen (which is small).

I don't expect to be at the space tonight, but I will be there tomorrow
evening and will be happy to hand out software and instruction.  Rubin, Josh
and Tony all have the ability to use the thing and provide instruction as
well.

You'll need your own windows laptop in order to make the thing work, and
there are a bunch of drivers to install.

If you want to try to get the Linux emc toolchain working, more power to
you, but I think for the time being we should get as many people as possible
up to speed on how the tool works in its "native environment" so that we can
all recognize problems and Bad Ideas with  a more custom setup.
