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 4th May 2010

The OpenStreetMap hack weekend went well: check out the timelapse video.

We're looking into radio licence courses. This has been discussed in the pub many times, so suggestions are welcome.

Go here for more details on the upcoming course (13/1/11): http://wiki.hackspace.org.uk/wiki/Projects/Amateur_Radio_Training

MakerBot

Russ gave a tutorial on using it, and we acquired our first Duplo Brick!

We now have a Makerbot cam, so you can watch it in action.

As if the Bus Pirate name wasn't confusing enough, Jasper now has a Bus Box.

We're nearly out of ABS plastic, so will be switching to PLA, after a small modification to the print head.

Coding

As we have so many components of varying sizes, we'd like an inventory system to store purchases and (most importantly) reordering information. If this excites you, please get involved.

The LDAP scripts are on the way, but until then, if you're a member and need any of the following, please ask on IRC:
