Weekly Meetings
  • Tomorrow night 9/7 – Meeting @ Republic Coffee 7pm. (As always, non-members welcome)
Space News (not that space)
  • Thanks to Brandon, we picked up 42 Pentium 4 computers, and a very nice SAN and Server rack.
  • We’ll be working to go through the 42 Desktops so we can inventory the hardware.
  • We’ll definetely need help working on the machines, we’ll let everyone know when we plan on working on them.
  • The goal for the PCs is to set a few aside for group use and then possibly sell (cheaply) the rest with proceeds going to the Laser Cutter Fund.
  • There is a leak by the back door, we had to pull up the carpet, we’ve got the landlord involved and currently waiting to hear back from him.
  • We have some new members and a couple of pending new members. If you haven’t been to a meeting in a while, come see the new faces.
  • Claudio has started a thread on the email list for those wanting RaspberryPi cases printed on the 3d printers for donations to the laser cutter fund.
  • Rachel is prepping info to do a class on Stained Glass.
  • We have bought a storage rack and The Artsy & Crafty among the group have begun plans for storing and sharing various arts and crafts supplies at the space.
  • Ben is going to pickup the storage rack today so it should be at the space for anyone who would like to go put it together.
Next Board Meeting: 9/24
