Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

News for 27th April

Space

The space will be CLOSED EARLY this Thursday, the archers are leaving at 6pm.

Makerbot Mondays are now official, the first being yesterday. If you want to learn how to use the MakerBot, it's a great idea to come, as it's fairly easy to knock the machine out of alignment.

The building will be opening again on Fridays, although the times are yet to be confirmed. Hopefully, it'll be at least the evening.

Solexious has been hacking the stairs. Listen out as you enter the space on a public evening.

Wet

The tubes for the dremelfuge arrived, which you can see in impressive action with HD. We're thinking a short length of PVC or ceramic pipe might be safer.

A few people have been discussing homebrewing alcohol, and Bob & Russ have agreed to lead a workshop on it.

Daniel's been honing his PCB etching and has put a comprehensive description on the wiki.

In other news, we found a 0 Ω resistor (see example, right). [Pun needed] [Pun provided]
