TriLUG Install and Hack Day, will be kind of like an install fest,
where members can meet to share ideas and skills. The theme for this
hack day will be on running Linux (OpenWRT) on Wireless Routers. This
topic keeps re-appearing on the TriLUG mailing list every few months,
so why not get together and help each other do something fun.

The hack day will be on Saturday 21st January 2012. All day 10am - 5pm.

Techshop RDU located at 5905 Triangle Drive Raleigh, NC 27617.

The activities for the day include:
* installing OpenWRT firmware (linux) on peoples routers
* learn some embedded linux skills
* build and customizing OpenWRT packages
* take apart routers to add serial ports and other electronics
* fix bricked and broken routers if we can

What to Bring
* laptop/desktop for building and deploying code
* wireless router or other funky equipment to run OpenWRT
* CAT5 network cable
* serial cables, usb-serial adapters, jtag pods

Food and Drink
Bring your own lunch, or team up on the day and order a pizza.
Techshop has a kitchen with fridge and microwave next to the meeting
room, and there is a drink vending machine.
Roth Brewery is right next door, if people want to share a beer afterwards.
