[Baypiggies] Registration & Information for October 11th meeting

Hello Baypiggies.

I'd like to take a quick moment to introduce myself before I ask for a ride from San Francisco to the Baypiggies Google meeting.

I am a new-to-california-transplant that has been here just over a month. I was hired to do Python programming. So, I took my first two weeks going through "Learning Python" front to back. I also have been doing extra "homework": In the evenings, I'd watch a new Monte Python Flying Circus through Netflix, and then send off the DVD to keep the cycle going. I'm almost through the series ;)

I've also since written two applications (although small) with Python. I've not yet gone through "System Programming with Python." (I don't have either book in front of me and could have been mistaken on exact title names). 

I couldn't go to the first Bay Piggies meeting because I had guests in town and was just settling in myself. I was really *really* looking forward to going. 

This morning, while bicycling to work, I decided to be stupid and try to jump a curb at 35ish mph (or however fast traffic was). Worse, I didn't actually "jump" and my angle to the curb was about 25 degrees. Can you say "Gumby." Needless to say, my left shoulder blade is "deformed" (bones aren't in their normal place). 

All of this, including the morning in ER, was fun - my first injury in California =) (Hey, when you're a new transplant, even bike injuries are exciting).

But, I'm suddenly realizing, I can't go to Baypiggies if I don't get a ride. Public transportation doesn't run late enough for the return trip. And, it looks like I *won't* be driving for 6-8 weeks.

Does anyone commute from San Francisco or Emeryville? I don't want to register unless I know I can make it.
