Glad you found the wiki useful. If you already have HW-accelerated graphics running on Panda, I can assure you that I have no desire to lug mine up to Portland in my suitcase! I’m shifting to the Snowball for a bit, anyway. I’d love to have dinner/lunch with you and discuss more. See exerciseforthereader.org to find my email. Looking forward to your session at any event.
