Welcome our Newest Member – Q5Sys

The members of Harford Hackerspace would like to extend a warm welcome to our newest member from Cecil County Maryland. Q5Sys was refered to us by a friend of his. I’m not sure who that friend is or how he heard about us but we appreciate it. I had a short conversation in the IRC chat room with Q and he is a young, energetic, down to earth kind of guy who is into every type of project you throw at him.
