The vending machine now provides some more feedback after money is put in.
Source code associated with my contribution is here. I haven't documented
the other components of the vending machine.
Based on the implementation details, it appears to me that
the bill acceptor is in fact plugged into one board (Arduino Leonardo)
that is connected by serial to another board (Raspberry Pi). Why is
the former board used at all? That is, why is the bill acceptor not
plugged directly into the latter board?
I said "your 'community' space," but honestly, I still want this to be my
space, too. I hardly ever make a fuss about any of this stuff because it's
all so futile, you know? but in this case, I really want to make my point
clear: I think we should rescind our action against Rannette. I think
she's been treated unfairly. Even if she is "aggressive" towards you or
your compatriots, I don't think we need white dudes policing our space of
black women's bodies. Matt, you claim to have acted in another's interest
and you offer an injured third party -- let them speak for themselves,
because I don't think it's your place right now. If there was a violent
incident that threatened our space, let's hear it from a witness or an
involved party. "Something Happened" is not good enough. Otherwise "but
above all the Omni
Commons must maintain a safe, welcoming environment" seems to fly directly
in the face of the lived experience of too many black people.
I wanted to reach out for some feedback. Seeking folks who would want to
facilitate or participate in a men's group.
I've previously participated in small groups like this and found them
beneficial for various reasons. I would like to see if folks have had
similar or different experiences.
The way I'm thinking about this would culminate in something like a regular
meeting for men in the sudo room community to discuss relevant issues
including those of identity, oppression, privilege, patriarchy, gender,
sexuality, stereotypes, safe space, and mutual support.
This may not be the best or even a viable path to approach these topics,
but I wanted to throw it out there to see if there is any interest.
Here's some images of the Seiko SMI 3200 Scanning Electron Microscope that
is in need of a new home:
Note that this is NOT a small system! It's not huge as SEM's go, but
definitely not desktop - more like "small room sized". And it would
obviously need some dedicated person to keep it in good running condition.
It is however almost brand new, and currently *running*, at <5nm resolution!
Beam Services Inc is down in Pleasanton, so I guess interested parties
could potentially go and have a look at the system. This kind of equipment
would be a significant commitment and investment in time and effort on our
part, so let's coordinate on this shall we?

Nope, just finding a good adhesive for reattaching it is hard. I ended up
just using an open cell foam pad to push the header on the glass
Only advice is to not be too aggressive and let the glue take its time to
release. Doingbot while warm would help.

Cool! Hey is there any reason why I can't do that end then just flip the
glass, clean it and re-attach the heating pad on the bottom?
Any tips on getting the heating pad off?

Henner wrote this awesome parts organizer web service, and it's running at
noisebridge (and his house):
here's the noisebridge implementation (type a letter to begin instant search):
i would love to help fill it with information about the stuff we have at
sudoroom, but i am not confident in my ability to install it and get it running
on our network. If someone feels good about doing this, sudo make it happen
and i'll help.
Starting next week (9/4), the trash (brown) and compost (green) bins
will be picked up by Waste Management twice a week on Tuesdays and
Fridays. I haven't added an additional recycling pick up yet, so blue
bin pickup remains on Wednesday.
Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe Phil/FNB have usually been the
ones putting trash cans out on the sidewalk for pickup. Can other
individuals or collectives assume responsibility for one of these trash
days so that the additional work isn't falling on one person/group? In
general, if you are around on the afternoon/evening before a pick up,
please see if you can help with this task.
Please continue to sort your trash and put move it to the correct bin in
the trash room. Events that generate trash as still required to take it
away at the end of the event.
Sudo-room is currently broke. Not taking in enough money to cover expenses nor plan for any future needs.
Who is interested in reviewing the financial situation and brainstorming some recommendations for bringing in additional funds? I’m happy to help set and track goals.

the weakest link in our sound system right now is our microphones
Seb - who's collective own's our sound system - can get 50% off sennheiser
mics (very good mics)
biohack the planet is willing to buy omni 5 handheld mics
for $250 which is doable
if we can get more money we could also get wireless lapels (wearable) -
often requested, another wireless handheld & maybe even a drum kit set.
wireless lapels (wearable) for as low as $150 each
still researching models for wireless handhelds & drum kit set.
plz, let me know if interested in contributing & to what if known
