[Noisebridge-discuss] Wall Status

Having been one of the people who tried using a damp sponge while mudding
rather than sanding after, my experience was that it was much easier to get
a smooth surface using the putty knife than the sponge. the gaps between
the upper and lower walls were so big that they will almost certainly
require two passes on mudding.

unless I end up with gobs and gobs of job interviews this week, i'll
probably put in another afternoon's work, but i don't really have a plan
yet as to which day that might be.
