All three topics are interesting.
Plex holds more interest for me currently as I plan to soon build a new
home NAS for professional, personal and entertainment data. Would want to
include Plex in those plans.
RetroPie is interesting too. Built one with my 10 year old son. He
learned a lot. Dad can still win at Atari Combat. I could bring it and
talk about it, but would likely be a relatively short discussion.
BitCoin for me has less interest. Technically it's harder to mine for
BitCoin prime numbers every month. As a financial currency it is not very
strong, not quite taking the world by storm. I like it's government
independence, but prepper friends prefer precious metals.

Before the next meeting suddenly appears and we're scrambling for a topic,
is there something that people are burning to know about?
We talked about doing a talk about plex, I'm not sure how interested people
Another topic that came up was a talk about setting up a RetroPi system.
Another topic that came up later was BitCoin. Personally I've always found
bitcoin an enigma. If anybody in the group understands it I'd love to
learn about it and possibly what tools there are on linux for mining and
I am leery of the allegiances of any politician who refers to their
constituents as "consumers".
