Well a bit behind the curve here but here finally is the NW Meet Report.
We met up at our usual location, Fred’s pad, and there was plenty of tea, biscuits and cake as Fred spoilt us. Probably because he actually had a few visitors at his place and proved to the neighbours that Ole. Curmudgeon actually knew real live people that were not stuck on the internet.
Timelord gave his reloading shotgun cartridges chat and it ended up evolving into a medieval staff discussion where he again demonstrated his knowledge of old style weaponry and tactics. TL is always educational in these discussions and he is always well worth listening to.
Scythe then gave his talk and showed us how to convert an ordinary digital camera to night vision. Basically the premise is every digital camera is NV capable and a filter is inserted to stop the camera whitening out with UV radiation. Take an old camera, remove this filter and you have a NV capability for £20. Took him 10 minutes to do while showing us each step. We spent more time talking about it than it took him to do it.
We then, as we always do, moved on to more general subject in a free for all. One topic was the forum, as you know I was looking at what to do with it. People here were pretty much in alignment with the views I had already received so nothing new came out and we discussed what I was proposing to do. They seemed happy with it.
A few other minor topics were discussed and all in all it was another interesting day. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and we discussed having another one towards the end of the year when more of our regulars could attend.
