Gittip, our primary funding mechanism, doesn't notify you when your credit

over the past two months (we're now at $338.40/wk, and not long ago we had
tipped $500!). I signed in today and my card had been rejected, so I had to

Sudo is not rich. We are losing money. I'll be working on setting up
alternative donation options this week. Send me suggestions if you have

Cool. We should host the next one at the Omni.
I know many people on this list have deep Oakland ties, so I wanted to be
sure you knew that Oakland is hosting the *National Poetry Slam* for the
first time in over 20 years.
Sudo along side the Bay Area Public school have been a huge supporter of
the arts and especially poetry.
People have flown in from all over the country to be in Oakland. Many of
them have never been to California or The Bay Area. This is their first
experience with the city you hold dear.
If you see one of the 500 poets please welcome them to the Bay!
Many have excellent ideas and vision, it may be a great way to spread
whatever project or message you are working on
Here is the Press Release - They are not sold out as of this email
Hope you enjoy it!
I dumped out some 'inside' trash bins (i.e, non-Waste Management bins) that
have been quietly rotting away in the basement, sudo and elsewhere
throughout the space..
No problem really except people's penchant to not remember to put a bag in
If you are throwing away something that does not get totally nasty, maybe
you think, why even use a bag? Good point. I guess its because that others
do thoughtless things like toss their half-eaten burrito into the bottom of
a clean (or at least not totally nasty) bin, together with a pile of
unwanted chips, and all of that gets mixed in with the non-nasty garbage.
Now the bin, even emptied, smells really nasty, and needs to be cleaned.
But, I don't feel like cleaning it, so it will just make whatever space
it's in smell nasty, too.
The point being, every bin should have a garbage bag. Bags mean that when
you empty the bin, the bin doesn't need to be cleaned every time, or remain
smelling totally gross.
If you can't find a garbage bag, ask someone. If we are out of bags, go buy
a box a block away at the 24h walgreens. Save the receipt, and the OOC will
pay you back!
If you are too broke or unmotivated to do those things, please take your
garbage with you.
To prevent rankness, and the fact that WE DEFINITELY HAVE RATS, please do
not use any inside bin without a bag. Please? Thank you..
Yar, thanks for you input.
I like your idea too. No, we don't have any hacker asking for it. But I came out w that thought since NoiseBridge donated SudoMesh a couple of hundred of so wireless routers (boards).
Chris, Sudomesh member, would be best to answer the question about who the racks where donated to.
