  • 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.

  • 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.

We have created an Announcement-only Google Groups email list in order to make sure our official announcements are making it through the rest of the chatter on this, the public list.

Update on the new space progress

by on Jun.19, 2012, under Business, News, omgwhathaveidone

Dan Vacuuming Drywall

Just to give everyone an update, Ben, Claudio, Dan, and Joe have been up at the new space working nearly everyday since we’ve signed the lease. We have taken down all the walls we needed to take down. We’ve fixed the drop ceiling in the community room. We’ve prepped the walls of the community room to be primed and painted. We need to put up a couple of walls and we’ll be ready to start moving stuff in.

We’re still waiting on the AC to be fixed (Hasn’t worked since we’ve been there) and we’re waiting on a guy to come fix the broken glass in the front door.

We are going to be up working on the new space every night this week. If any members would like to come give us a hand we would greatly appreciate it. Let us know when you plan on coming out, we don’t want to get too many people in the space and not be able to get any work done.

Hoping to get our Comcast connection moved over (as well as our servers/camera setup) sometime Friday. We’re just waiting on Comcast to schedule a time/date.

Bartlett Space – Day 3 – Ceiling Fun

by on Jun.14, 2012, under Business, News

Not as much drastic progress on the new space today, however we did a good bit to fix the drop ceiling in the common room. We’re waiting on landlord approval to remove and rebuild a couple small walls in order to close off a small room.
