    • Another dumpster run?
    • e-waste
    • Drinking problem at 2169

Maglocks still not installed because a part needs to be fabricated to compensate for the door frame being out of plumb. Stop distracting Jesus until it gets done.

    • LDAP Database

See LDAP Proposal

  • SCADA, HMI Panels

Need to examine the Windows driver packets in more detail to turn on certain necessary features. Some panels mostly work on a few machines. Considering temporarily mounting the laptops by themselves while the panels get figured out.

  • VA Machines

Another round of formatting probably this week. Some of the nicer machines have been fixed up and are being allocated for scholarships to needy hacker sprouts.

Discussion Items[edit]

  • Jeffrey Malone as new Noisebridge treasurer

  • Obtaining a shrubbery. It must be nice looking and not too expensive.
