there is no need to bring more monitors to noisebridge!  we have tons.

We even have one with the Apple Display Connector (which is DVI plus power 
plus USB ports) AND an adaptor to use it on a regular computer (with DVI).

That computer's monitor was indeed VGA, and the power cord was certainly 
simply missing, LIKE THE FOURTH AXIS OF THE CNC MACHINE WHICH IS GONE.
It may have been hard to see but there was certainly either an AC power 
socket on the monitor, or a small round DC power jack that was supposed to 
take 12v from a power supply.

VGA has no power pins and if it did, the delicate pins would fail anyway 
because they could never handle any current like that.

As for letting people tailgate in on you, feel free to let NO ONE tailgate 
you.  Some people hang back to observe who is waiting at the gate before 
approaching.  If someone is waiting a long time and has a backpack and a 
dog and crusty patches and their fork and cup attached to their belt, I 
would not buzz them in or let them tailgate me.

theoretically, anyone you let in is someone you should meet and offer a 
tour, so you have an idea of where they're at and what they're using the 
space for.  But please don't let any of this discourage you from coming to 
noisebridge as much as possible.

P.S. ALSO THE 1/8" COLLET FOR THE MILL IS MISSING, WE ONLY HAVE THE 1/4" 
ONE NOW.  WHERE THE FUCK IS IT?
