I have 14 BeagleBone Black computers I am willing to deliver to interested parties at the Expo.  This will be on a first come first served basis.  The cost will be $45.  Cash is preferred.  If you have interest, please post here.  I don't want to bring them if there is no interest.  Deadline is Wednesday 7/15 at noon Eastern. Thanks!

I'll take 1.  I think you will be there Wed for set up so will technically catch you before the Expo then I can spend 3 days learning more about what I just paid for (I'm behind on the BBB part of Falcon).  May take 2 if I learn quick enough and have uses for 2. :-)

We don't get in to Love Field until 10:45.  See you bright and early Thursday though.

I'll be there Wednesday and can share what I've learned about the BBB. Currently using the two I own for a P10/Octoscroller and a F16-B.

I'll take 3 also. 

Jon - I'll be looking to pick your brain some while we are setting up on Wednesday.   I've already built the capes I bought but had never gotten around to picking up some BBBs to actually mount them to.

The amount I know about Linux and Debian is limited, but I have had great luck with the Pi and BBB.  Great tools, each with their strong and weak points.

A BBB-Cape-P10 mini-session would be great. 

I've got the pieces but had a problem getting a BBB to load with the cape attached, and put it off in the corner.
So, some debugging and part-swapping to verify parts against a known working config would be nice.

I will have an alpha version of BBB SD and eMMC images with me at Expo for testing.  They still need refining, so they are considered alpha instead of beta, but I think they are good to get the P10 and F16-B/F4-B working.  We can try those or at least get the normal BBB image installed so the FPP_Install.sh script can be run.
