Much better than a lot of other members can say.
Besides, an hour isn't too bad. Enough to make it a bit more than a regular thing but enough to use "I gotta get going. You know, traffic..." to get away if things aren't going to your liking.:eg:
From where I am sitting it takes me more than an hour to get to Arglaser locally. I have done it though. Bought a DAC from him. Was almost killed twice on the return trip by the local blend of drivers out there too ! (There are definitely drawbacks to having such a populace of ethnicities in close knit communities.)
I guess it all boils down to how much you want to see the others projects.
Could turn into an informal meet & greet with a few of you meeting in a more central location. Could be a good thing.
