Welcome to the newsgroup, and our creative group! Usually, there are people
around during the weekends at the 757Labs.
If you check the website: http://757labs.org/
There is a calendar of events posted (on the right-hand column). The Open
Hack nights are a good mix of characters.
See you around the Lab sometime~
Also, unless Hell freezes, I will be there on Friday night.
