Thanks to all those that attended yesterday and extra thanks for those
that got involved in the discussions.

And special thanks/credit to Bob Clough, Bob Ham, Roy Evison and Daniel
Botting for helping with running event.

While looking at Andrew “bunnie” Huang's blog I noticed that he has
released "Hacking the Xbox" for zero price (and its under a CC licence):

As seen on the HACMan tour, if you want to start building some Free
Hardware then I recommend getting involved with HACMan

Happy Hacking!
