Re: [PLUG] Speaker for PLUG North meeting on 14 Dec

Looks like we don't have a speaker for the upcoming PLUG North meeting on
December 14.  Eric Johnson has offered to give a talk on's
Enhanced Machine Controller project (EMC2).  Eric describes it as follows:

   The talk will be an overview of EMC2, a Linux based hard real-time
   system for computer control of machines such as milling machines, lathes,
   plasma cutters, cutting machines, robots, hexapods, etc., as well as
   associated user interfaces and other related utilities.

Is there interest in this talk at PLUG North?

I thought this was already a done deal. But count me in, it sounds cool, especially if there are toys.

(And remember, this is how Skynet will self-assemble its hardware, once its software becomes self-aware. So we should learn something about it now, while there's time... :)

implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
