It’s the first Hacklab AGM tonight (Tue 26th Apr) so the Open night will be starting a bit later than normal, from 8:30pm onwards.
See you there.
It’s software night at the lab again this evening, from 7pm or so onwards. Would anyone be interested in talking about ideas/projects for the ‘Open Data Challenge‘?
There might even be some existing software projects from the wiki and/or Markos’ list which could be adapted for it.
On a more local note, Martin sent a reminder that Culture Hack Scotland is coming up soon too – will likely be some good opportunities there too!
The hack lab equipment list is getting quite long, including:
- Tables, chairs & sofa – tick
- Soldering Irons – tick
- Microscope – tick
- Projector & Sound system – tick
- CNC Milling Machine – tick (Z axis TODO)
- Fridge (with Beer & Club Mate) tick
- Somewhere to hang your coat…… um … back of a chair?, side of the sofa?
That is until now. We have coat hooks! Five of them in total, spread out around the lab.
A delivery of Club Mate has safely arrived in the lab, complete in original yellow crates. A staple drink at European hacker camps and hacker-spaces, it’s a caffeinated drink with less sugar than typical caffeinated beverages. Best severed chilled, the taste is often described as iced tea like.
If your in the lab and fancy trying a bottle help yourself, suggested donation of £2 into the glass on top on the fridge.
Many thanks to Club Mate UK for supplying us.
Made good progress on the speaker cabinet at the Hacklab last night, ably assisted by @tinyblob. Unfortunately, the screws I bought for the back panel are a few mm too short so I need to do some shopping. Getting close now, though.
I still need to chisel out pockets for handles on the accompanying 4U rack box but that shouldn’t take long.
