[Noisebridge-discuss] Wall Status

I was recommending the use of the damp sponge ONLY for the area where 
the person applying the mud is trying to blend the thinnest  area into 
the flat of the wallboard.

I agree that what ever covers the tape is by  good enough to be 
painted.  If we start sanding the mud we look at an immediate future 
with every piece of electronic equipment  being covered in fine white 
powder.    Besides, consider the condition of the existing walls.
