Sleeping at Noisebridge
Feb 17. Lasted about an hour. one of the most consistent resident sleepers woke up from a hidden spot, and started talking loudly and telling people what to do. Shows zero respect for both the other people sleeping, (probably with hangovers) and those of us who want to work quietly. strike out. But two days ago when I talked about his residence sleeping it became unpleasant and I decided to leave. Today I forgo talking to him about it seemed too much like it would be wasting breath and end in aggravation. I just left the space again, but this is an unfortunate. this isn't fair usage of the space.
Feb 17. There are a lot of people sleeping at noisebridge this morning. Very much of a crash pad feeling, except that its actually not so bad from the point of view that for the first minutes, they are asleep, and no one is in the space by the library.
Feb 15, I spoke to No_Hat that I've been seeing him frequently asleep at Noisebridge and residence using of Noisebridge. The conversation became all unpleasant. I decided to leave because of that.. As I was leaving a women who I've seen twice working quietly at the table was also complaining about No_Hats behavior. About an hour later, some anon blanked this page, and changed it to something like, I sleep at noisebridge. So what. This bs just takes too much effort. Its not good for or sustainable for the people to residence sleep at noisebridge.
Feb 15. No_Hat was again sleeping at the front area common table area. This represents the fourth morning that I have seen him sleeping at Noisebridge in a small number of days. This seems to be a matter of residence sleeping.
Feb 14. Nick sleeping again on the common area table. No_Hat also was asleep at the front common area front table.
Feb 13. Didn't see anyone openly sleeping, but I'm not checking spaces like the server room and hidden corners. later both Kyle and Nick appeared with the looks o f people waking up. Then it looked like he sleeping at the common table. Monad talked to him, and it nearly got heated
@ 6:30 am on Feb 6, --Greg (talk) 14:43, 6 February 2014 (UTC) Someone took the table with hardwired internet, and moving it to make a second sleep cave in J.C. Space. Not happy because its part of my coffee in the morning routine. I didn't wake the person up, but want to, and ask what's up with moving this to make a sleep space.
@ 8:30 am local time, when I left, there were two people openly sleeping in the space. Should I start to be putting names with the sleeping people? I know I feel different when it is "residency" sleeping from "catch some winks when working hard" or had a "extraordinary emergency" so.--Greg (talk) 16:59, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
--Greg (talk) 16:05, 4 February 2014 (UTC)Here just before 8 am. Same two habitual sleepers. One wakes up from J.C's cave, the other is still sleeping on the floor by the soldering area. Better then when he was sleeping in the library.
--Greg (talk) 17:05, 2 February 2014 (UTC) One guy openly sleeping by common table in Hackatorium. Raining out. Would feel sorry for him. I think its 4 times I've seen him sleeping here, and two other times in the early am. I think he has moved in. Don't know his name.
- Did you ask his name? Or try talking to him about why people sleeping at Noisebridge makes it unpleasant for others? - anonymous
- No neither - I'll probably ask around and get his name. --Greg (talk) 17:15, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
Gregorydillon (talk) 14:39, 30 January 2014 (UTC) Got in about 6:15. Two people sleeping in the Library. Both are repeat sleepers. (One is same guy as yesterday "wake up with coffee, wears a beanie." and (?a??)
Gregorydillon (talk) 14:38, 29 January 2014 (UTC) Got in just about 6:15. One guy sleeping in the library where I like to drink my coffee. I offered him a cup of coffee. he declined, and after a few went to the restroom, and then I believe a different space to finish his sleep. All in all, rather chill.
Got in just just before six. The place looked great. The floor is clean, the kitchen is clean. The space was quiet.
Thank you Al,for putting my wiki users space on protected status. It had been changed a bunch of times today.
Thank you User:Watashidesuka , Monad is in the space early this morning cleaning up both the shop, and the overflow shelves of electrical components.
Thank you Ron for running a System Admin Class yesterday.
Physical Space Hacks
Thinking about a physical hack on the location of the toters. There is no functional need for the large toter where it is, and visually, they are in an unappealing location. Not that I'm great at it, but the hacker crowd doesn't seem to be good at architecture for looking good. I'm going to ask some people's opinions before / if doing anything to actually move stuff.
My thought is to place two smaller toters on the kitchen area where people climb up to sleep, and leave the large toter by the elevator area.
Self-Repair Manifesto vs Green Thoughts
Outside of the Turing Classroom, there is a poster for what's called the Self-Repair Manifesto. It sounds great and makes sense, and has a do the right thing for the planet and environment leaning.. But yesterday in the System Administration Class that Ron led, its ideas come into conflict with the another do the right thing by the planet idea, of green computing and using computer that don't burn so much energy.
The server we were looking at runs at about 200 watts. Calculating that to its daily costs, is about a dollar a day to have on 24/7. So that comes to 300 to 400 a year. Other computers available now, will cost more do buy, but will only use approx. 1/4 to a 1/3 as much power.
Its a good issue to wrestle with, when the older computers should be repaired, and when they should be e-wasted because new computers use significantly less power. And world energy consumption and effect on global warming is real.
System Admin Class
Yesterday We had a renewed system admin class. Some topic covered
- opening and inspecting physical servers
- understanding components of a server from different vendors
- important of memory check before putting server on line.
- important keyboard shortcuts in vim
- bash scripting
- power consumption / cpu / drives / memory
- issues in deciding which OS to install
- consultation with resources
Good first start !!
