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.

A new year has come round,
trash and e-waste abound!
Sudo is not quite solid state,
we must care for its fate.
I'll take out clutter by the bag,
let us now plan to de-frag?
- - - -
With great power comes great responsibility.
there is a small offset printing press in sudoroom which is never going to be
used here, and will probably end up getting thrown out or recycled if it
doesn't go somewhere.
It's an Adana Five-Three and they can be quite valuable:
of course ours isn't as polished as this one in the picture, but it's basically
the same thing. The wood base is not flawless, but the rollers seem soft and
new and the action of the whole thing is smooth.
does anyone want to handle getting this thing out of sudoroom? Perhaps you can
sell it and donate some of the money back to sudoroom to keep the lights on?
sudoroom wont have another meeting before the next delegates meeting
plz, read, comment, provide concerns/questions if you will
This is a GCEA draft proposal, which could be amended, based on feedback
from the delegates at this meeting. Thank you for taking the time to
discuss this proposal.
GCEA as an organization is working to establish itself on firm economic
grounding. Unfortunately this has meant that GCEA hasn't been able to pay
its rent for 5 months of 2018, as well as currently in 2019. GCEA feels
that there is strong value for both parties in the relationship between
GCEA and the Omni, and hopes that the Omni collectives feel the same way.
To this end, we are making this proposal to change the status of GCEA's
As an Omni collective organization, GCEA members appreciate the other Omni
collectives’ willingness to work with us as we solidify our financial
1) GCEA would like to pay its existing back rent to the Omni and is
planning to conduct fundraising event to that effect. We propose that GCEA
be able to pay the back rent at its normal rate, and propose that the Omni
waive the late fees on rent payment. We believe this to be consistent
behavior with many Omni collectives.
1a) GCEA organized a fundraising event, Out The Blue, on December 7th, 2018
in partnership with several University alumnae orgs and groups. We expected
a portion of the funds ($1,100) to go towards GCEA's rent/youth trip to
Africa. This portion would have covered our back rent from 2018 completely.
We have been informed, after the fact, that the rules of the Commons Group
prevent the funds from this event from going towards GCEA's rent. We
believe this is a miscommunication and intend to have a conversation with
the Common's Group in hope that our portion of the funds be allocated
towards GCEA's rent. We will be appreciative if that happens, but if not
GCEA intends to hold another fundraising event in order to pay for its back
2) GCEA would like to propose that the rent be reduced to one dollar, for
the ongoing period. We hope to be able to return to a larger rental rate
in the future, but are having difficulty meeting this need right now. We
understand that there is some precident in Omni history for an organization
to have one dollar rent.
2a) We understand that there are organizations that exist at the Omni who
make payments largely through paying a percentage of their donations
directly to the Omni, rather than a monthly rent. GCEA would like to
propose that it continue to support the Omni financially by giving a
portion of its income from fundraisings and donations to the Omni. We
would like to discuss that level with the Omni. Internally we have
discussed numbers around 30-50% of GCEA donations, but are happy to discuss
the appropriate level for this with the Omni Delegates.
3) GCEA has limited funds at the moment, but wants to continue contributing
to the Omni Commons as much as it is able. To this end GCEA would like to
propose that it take on a distinct project for the Omni. We have
brainstormed an project: to take responsibility for a renovation of the
Disco Room. This would involve organizing and taking responsibility for
creating a working group to hold the meetings, organizing fundraising
efforts (which should be easier as an Omni project, than direct GCEA
fundraising), managing volunteer contractors, seeking input from the Omni
Community, and ensuring that all legal regulations are followed.
4) The delegates have previously approved that GCEA and BAPS have priority
use for the Small Classroom. Recently, some delegates requested that the
lock be removed from the Classroom door. GCEA, in conversation with BAPS,
propose to convert the small classroom from fully common space to
semi-common. We propose to keep the door locked, in order to establish
accountable common access to the room, and to keep it secure and clean.
However, we seek to make the room available to any group that makes a
reasonable request, except when GCEA or BAPS is already using the space.
Please note additionally that we encourage that the Ticketbooth room be
made more accessible to fully common use as soon as possible.
Thank you delegates for taking the time to consider this proposal. We
welcome your thoughts and questions, and hope to be able to return at the
next delegates meeting with a m ore formalized and informed proposal.

Escalating this to sudo-discuss as we really need an answer soon. Thanks.
The place I work is getting rid of three work tables, which might be good
for sudoroom. One is welded together (doesn't come apart) and has a shelf.
There are also two tables without a shelf, the legs of which bolt on, so
they can be partially dismantled. The tables are all 8ft long and in good
One or two of them could replace part of the "island of doom" near the
robot arm, or perhaps the workbenches against the wall.
Pictures attached. We would need a large vehicle to transport them, and
pickup would probably have to be during business hours. I would probably
need to know if we want them today (Friday) or Monday, and we'd probably
need to grab them some time next week.
