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 1st June 2010

New Scientist this week has a feature article on replicators, which begins with our Makerbot and mentions Russ and London Hackspace by name. Russ has apparently been inundated with follows, emails and calls from interested people. There is now a copy of that issue in the space.

New Space

roberthl and solexious viewed some new spaces, pics here:

Space

Tools
Cleared Seating
  • Roberthl and Mark did an epic tidying up. Anything that looked worthwhile scavenging is now in two boxes near the gas meter, all the other stuff will be taken away for dumping at some point.
  • Roberthl also put up new tool racks, and we all mucked in to remove the paintings. We now have more space in the sofa area and the weird shelves above the stairs have been emptied for our use.
  • Mark investigated the new phone line that Russ ran downstairs for the Archers card machine and phones. Results are inconclusive, investigation is ongoing.
  • We have padded the shelving above the sofas, due to RJ banging his head on the corner and bleeding a bit.
  • The Makerbot is currently still having problems with the printhead, but Glen's working on it!

Projects etc

Screenshot of sump client
  • Daniel got the AVR on his TQFP32-to-DIL32 converter PCB talking to his computer.
  • Jasper can now convert the data on the logic analyser to the format used by the sump client (some bugs still). He continues to be plagued by toolchain issues.
  • Mark and Magnus did the first Hackspace all-nighter working on Magnus's project.
