Hey all! So random thing happened on Wed. We decided to enter tomorrows DNA
Lounge Robot Bartender Challenge. Things are going surprisingly well. One
thing that isn't going so well is the speed of making a drink. So hoping
someone might have 4 match(ish) brushed DC motors with ~2mm shaft. HALP!
I have it on good authority that tonight's meeting will include:
* A variety of mac & cheese (including vegan and gluten free)
* Chocolate chip cookies
* One or more new members signing up!
Also: Last night quite a few people put in many hours of effort sorting the
sudo room south wall shelves. It's still in process so excuse the temporary
increase in mess in some areas. The goal is to put everything (ALL THE
THINGS!) in labeled containers!
I just looked into this more. The September 10 date (and the URL
above) is from a similar action that happened in 2014. I did find a
page for this year's action https://www.battleforthenet.com/july12/
... but it's not linked to yet from the main page, and it says:
sharing the code for them soon!"
So I think maybe it's too soon for this. Let's check back next week.
Sudo will have to abstain as this was not discussed on this list or at a
sudo meeting (and as an aside, would anyone like to become an omni delegate
for sudo? - https://sudoroom.org/lists/listinfo/omni-delegates ), but fyi
this is up for consensus tonight:

Proposal to Ban Running Wolf from the Omni Commons
Submitted by Laura, 6/14/17
PROPOSAL: Running Wolf has continually disregarded posted Omni Commons
rules despite being warned both verbally and in writing. These violations
include using the Omni for personal storage and sleeping. His behavior is
volatile and at times constitutes harassment. He should be permanently
banned from entering the Omni. If we pass this proposal, we will need to
make a plan to prevent Running Wolf from vandalizing the Omni in
REASONS: In our most recent basement clean out, I found a large duffle bag
with items that appeared to belong toRunning Wolf hidden in a pile of other
stuff. I placed it in the pile of items to be hauled, but it disappeared
before the hauler came. There is currently a dresser in the den that
contains clothes and other personal affects that I believe are his. There
have been multiple occasions in the past when I have placed warning notes
on piles of personal belongings in the den/computer area that appeared to
belong to him. These notes have included the reminder that personal storage
is not allowed at the Omni.
Daniel has seen Running Wolf sleeping in the den area twice in the past 2
weeks. He wrote up what happened in an email, referring to Running Wolf as
*"Today I arrived to OC about 7AM and when checking the areas where I may
wanted to work, I came across a person sleeping by the computers. **This is
the same person I have found about 12 days earlier late night wrapped up in
what I said it was a blanket (can be a sleeping bag). *
*Anyhow, because I felt unsafe to wake the person up by myself, and since I
have seen (anonymous) downstairs in CCL, I went to check with (anonymous)
about what should we do. We ended up going upstairs and wake this person
up, and remind him that Omni its not a place to sleep.*
*(Anonymous) had to clap his hands hard about 4-5 fives to get him to wake
up. This person quickly claimed he was not sleeping, even though he was
rolled up with blanket (or sleeping bag). -This person increased his tone
of voice and tried to change the subject. He continue talking loud, even
after we have left him alone." (Daniel agreed to have his email included in
Running Wolf has also violated our Statement of Solidarity. He recently was
observed shouting "Fuck immigrants! This is my land" within earshot of
several people, at least 2 of whom were immigrants. This constitutes
harassment, and is one example of how he creates a hostile environment. In
addition, when he is asked to reconsider his behavior or is reminded of the
rules, he often yells at the person in a threatening and derogatory manner,
expressing a sense of entitlement to exemption from the agreements of the
His presence in the den/shared computer area discourages other people from
using the area because he leaves the area he uses dirty. He speaks loudly
and aggressively, disturbing people working in the area around him, and
sometimes arguing with them. He continues to need reminding to speak in a
normal tone even after being asked multiple times.
Unlike most members of the Omni community, Running Wolf contributes almost
nothing, often not picking up after himself or helping others who are
working on Omni related tasks around him.
Running Wolf's attitude toward the Omni is that the rules don't apply to
him and that he doesn't need to contribute anything to our community.
Requests to change his behavior are met with hostility.
I propose that he be permanently banned.

Greetings from Battlemesh in Vienna!
Before I left a few days ago, I sorted the ewaste pile at the entry to sudo
rough tally of components in it. Our new recycling company (which is a
nonprofit, actually), Civicorps, has a free ewaste pickup program.
Would someone be willing to fill out the online form
<http://www.civicorpsrecycling.org/e-waste-pick-request-form/> and be the
point of contact for the day of pickup?
* Laptops: 20
* LCD Monitor: 1
* Fax Machines: 2 (tho i think they're just handsets)
* Hard Drives: 10
* Printers: 15
* Other electronics or small appliances: 22
For 'designated parking area' you can mention the loading parking spot
(yellow curb) on 48th and maybe put some cones out the day of to reserve
Plz reply to this thread if you're willing to take this on!
