User groups are certainly a ton of fun. If you guys end up running a Code Camp then let me know if you'd like to use the website I created for ours:

Just curious: Based on the logo does it have anything to do with Cingular phone service? And based on the name is it related at all to Lego Mindstorms?

Thanks Lorin for your query.

The user group is a new thing for me, I'm not all that fussed about doing any presentations, I like listening.

The Code Camp is a cool idea, I will pass it on.

Thanks for bringing the similarities in logo to our attention. Cingular isn't a provider here in the UK but there is a likeness.

Nice idea about the code camp - we'll have a think about that for next year.

The logo was created by a graphic designer, who wanted to show droplets of water joining together to be stronger (a community) and also to look like a person.

I said 'hey an orange man' i like it...
