My MacBook is totally over-heating right now. It's driving me crazy, and yeah I need to get down there. Prefect opportunity here…Last year they gave away an Iphone, but they have BBQ and ice cream this year. Still, on the day that is the greatest event day in Portland events.

Portland, Ore.— MacForce Summer Blast 2008, the 5th annual NW Macintosh event of the year, lands in Portland on Saturday, August 16.Ãƒâ€š This event boasts a coming together of like-minds to explore all things "Macintosh," preview new products, share stories and ideas, learn, experience and play.Ãƒâ€š For the love of Mac, this is the "can't be missed" event of the summer.
From 10:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m., attendees will be dazzled by more than 20 vendor booths—including such big names in progressive technology as Apple, Adobe and M-Audio—while enjoying free BBQ hot off the grill, as well as frosty drinks and ice cream.
