[Fab] vinyl cutter

Talking to the vinyl cutter is easy. It speaks HPGL, and Inkscape will 
do it. However, it has an internal USB-RS232 converter that currently is 
Windows-only.

However! The cutter also has a RS-232 port. So if have a way to talk 
that, then you should be able to use inkscape to cut just fine. I 
believe Rubin has done this - he'd know the details.

FWIW, the proprietary software requires a license, which Noisebridge has 
legally purchased. I have it. If you want access, let me know. I should 
probably vinyl-cut a sticker with the license key on it :-)
