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.

I have received messages from a neighbor saying that she is increasingly
concerned about the situation on the ballroom steps. It seems to have
deteriorated lately. She says there are often "lots of people" out there
and loud music is being played at various times of the day and night.
The people are drinking openly and intoxicated. Lee and Danny's health
problems have been getting worse so folks are frequently calling
ambulances to take them to the hospital when they have seizures. She
also believes someone (she did not accuse Lee or Danny) is dealing there
at night. I asked if she could describe the person who is dealing and
she couldn't. She has noticed cops patrolling more frequently and thinks
that other neighbors may be calling them or complaining that they they
I think we need to have another discussion about how to handle this.
There may be new people coming around. In the meantime, if you see
people playing music loud enough for neighbors to hear, please ask
whoever is playing it to turn it down. If you feel comfortable asking
people not to drink alcohol, please also do so. What I say is something
to the effect of, "we don't mind people hanging out on the steps, but if
there is drinking, loud music or yelling, trash, or illegal behavior,
neighbors are going to complain, call the cops, and that threatens
Omni's existence. If we go away, whoever owns the building next is
almost definitely NOT going to let folks sit here. So if it continues,
then we won't be able to let people sit here."
If anyone has any information about any dealing that might be happening,
please contact me directly. I will keep your identity confidential.
I have been encouraging Danny and Lee to get into a recovery program.
Their friend Andrew is also trying to convince them and is willing to
drive them to the program we have discussed.
Re: Timing - A quick glance at the edit history of the Google Doc I linked
to in my proposal
can demonstrate that I've been writing it since last October, knowing I
would need to start generating my household's income this year and acutely
aware of how much time Omni's bookkeeping work has taken in the past. It
should be noted I'm essentially doing the bookkeeping for not one, but 6
collectives (Omni writ large, Sudo, LibLens, partial DIY [they have a
secondary fiscal sponsor as well], The Village [a significant amount of
work], and BAPS [tho they contributed $0 in 2019 and have no expenses]) and
tax season is now upon us.
I am unable to attend the Delegate's Meeting this Thursday as I'll be out
of town, but happy to answer any questions or concerns remotely.

This just came across my radar and I don't think anyone's posted it to the
list, but the annual Musicians & DIY Electronics Swap Meet is this Sunday
at Omni starting at 10am:

We're supposed to have Sudoroom meetings every third Wednesday. I
forgot about it and didn't show up yesterday even though I'm supposed
to be the Omni delegate. Oops.
Did anybody show up? Did a meeting happen? Were any of the Omni
proposals discussed or should I abstain on them all?
