General space news

  • This is the first news in ages
  • We recently got more shelves and boxes for member storage. If you don't have box yet get in there quick!
  • A new interactive whiteboard has been put up in the classroom
  • Jonty has erected a new whiteboard next to the rear entrance for listing broken tools and items needing to be purchased.
  • Andrews and Arnold are sponsoring the space by giving us a free IPv6 only FTTC internet connection, this is now up and running alongside the existing ipv4 only FTTC line.
  • It's been proposed to start holding "What do you do?" Talks on every other Thursday (first one planned for 13th June). Very roughly: everyone thinks their job is probably quite boring to other people, but everyone is interested in other peoples jobs. What do all you startup people do all day? What interesting things have you done at work this week?
  • User:Oni is planning to hold a Sewing Class on 15th June.
  • Alessandro plans to be filming his robot project in the space on Friday 7th June.
