It's a great topic, but I thought this week was OS/9 part II. I assumed
people were already gearing up for a different topic.
That said, I am happy to help, I have 2 webcams, a camcorder that can be
routed through a digitizer to the pc, and a microscope that can be
pulled into skype to show boards and such. And, I think I can show
Xilinx ISE on my screen and write some Verilog. Ed Snider might have a
similar setup he can offer, or Mark McDougal (I know that's wrong, but
can't see his name in my inbox right now).
I cannot show an FPGA right now (I can, but there's little more to show,
it's a bigger chip, but the tools are the same, and my dev board is in
use and not easy to demo right now)
