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?
Hello Sudo folks!
Food not Bombs your neighborly collective at the Omni is looking to
purchase a table/I-pad to better track food flow and inventory. The goal is
to have the tablet installed on the main Fnb fridge downstairs but we also
want to make it theft proof. Does anyone have advice on how to installed a
locked tablet to a fridge ?
We'll have a meeting tonight at 6 pm both virtual and in person
Here's the link for online participation:
Cel may also provide a mumble gateway.
Maybe we should make it a bit of a work-meeting around re-opening and
fundraising? We can do a quick round of intros and updates and then proceed
to our todos?
# Covid safety info for showing up in person
Some of us can meet in person. I can't find any specific guidance for
hackerspaces so let's follow what CCL has been doing which is 25% capacity.
The room's capacity as per fire inspection is 49 people max and we share
the space with CCL so that's 6 people for sudo room. I'm just gonna declare
that we probably won't have that many people showing up so we don't need to
have people announce if they are planning to show. If you show up and there
are already more than 6 people then you should wait outside and let us know
and we can coordinate with people in CCL to ensure we don't exceed the 12
person room capacity.
Everyone will need to wear a face covering even if you are fully
vaccinated. Don't bring in any food, though a personal beverage is ok.
There is a non-contact thermometer mounted by the entrance to CCL, please
use it. Do no show up if you or someone you have been in contact with has
had symptoms in the past 14 days.
If you have hand sanitizer or electronics friendly disinfectant spray (e.g.
70% or higher isopropanol) then please some.
Your access cards to Omni may have been deactivated. We will be monitoring
IRC and of course the jitsi call if you need us to open the door for you.
We can re-activate people's cards after the meeting.
We'll have a meeting tonight at 6 pm. I won't be there to let people in so
I guess virtual only unless someone else shows up.

Does anyone have an animal trap to lend suitable for trapping a 5 to 6 week
old abandoned kitten? She has been crying-meowing on and off for almost 48
yes i contacted feral foundations and animal societies, although if you
know one that will lend a trap i must have missed them.
thank you so much.
*Be seeing you.*
I think this might be my first time posting?
Just wanted to let y'all know that I run a
cyberpunk/post-cyberpunk/bio-punk, etc. movie night on the bay area anime
and gaming discord and that we are actively looking for some new members.
Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to learn more.
< Hello sudo >
I signed into IRC and u:jerkey recommended I send out an intro email, so here it goes:
I'm Eric. I live in Oakland (near Grand Lake) with my partner and our son. I lead platform engineering and product security at Fivetran. In my free time I've been working on a DIY kitchen remodel and brush clearing (for fire season). I'm interested in federated computers/networks, sneakernets, multi-user computing/sandboxing, data analytics, climate change, energy & water infra, prescribed burns, and renewable energy. Currently reading "Fall, or: Dodge in Hell".
Looking forward to meeting you all!
Hi people of Sudo Room.
There are two blacklight fixtures sitting in sudo room near the cables and
adapters bin. If they aren’t already part of someone’s project I’d like to
use them for a personal art project. If anyone knows please let me know.
I have list. Jake said to send it to the group..
1. My older HP laptop, Windows 7 has problems that need fixing.
2. I got a Dell client laptop with Windows 10 and need to move legacy
programs from the older laptop onto it. IMMEDIATELY
3. I also need to get Windows 10 under control..
I've been handed the pleasure of directing the 50th fungus fair for the
MSSF in January 2022 and need to generate material for that project.
1a. On the old one I have dragon and adobe CS which could remain there
but whatever is wrong with the HP makes it difficult to run those programs.
4. Out of principal I don't "do"social media, but we need to have a
website site and some kind of social media site or suite of sites. Is
there someone who con help set that up for the fair?
The CLUB needs a re-do on their website.. work on this project might
lead to that..not sure.
Is there anyone there who could help on anyone of these problems? There
will be a budget... and there are passes and perks for the fair to
come... ;- }
