We moved! So much has been happening, the news may lag behind a bit.
The new rent is 4 times as much as our previous space, so we're currently in a spending freeze until we can make up the subscriptions. We can currently support ourselves for up to 3 months maximum.
Space Warming Party
We had a space warming party and barbecue to celebrate the new space, with a huge number of people visiting.
We've had people in the space every evening since we moved in, and we've finally got a cool hacker entry system for members.
Jonty installed a new pan/tilt camera
After a failed eBay bid a new way of purchasing high-value equipment has been pioneered. This has been necessary for coping with the spending freeze.
So far we've received pledges for:
- Laser Cutter
- MIG welder
- Bubble Etch Tank
