Another banner day!  Anthony and Gian Pablo got some 8" infocasts to boot
and show video using only a USB-Flash Drive, using a debug feature that
executes a script from USB keys on boot.

I have Openembedded working again and I hope to have a chumby build for the
3.5's next week.

And, I have some project ideas I'll announce next meeting.

Join us!
