  • Noemie (sudoer, The Omni is inspiring from its immense possibilities and openness, so much potential. Gives lots of momentum. I would really like to start to install nice and pleasant lights! I've been making a documentary about sudo room, let me know if you don't want to be on film!),
  • Yar (agree about better lighting, and how about some ventilation in here?? Sediment is creeping. There is nothing about this building we will overlook for hacking!)
