    It varied from season to season, seasons being 
several months at a stretch. 
    A few years ago disturbances were seldom. 
    Two years ago the incidents of disturbance 
increased to something like one or two times a month. 
    Disturbances have included 
* loss of physical connectivity (cable removal at 
  the switch, fairly regularly), 
* loss of logical connectivity (no connection to our 
  reserved IP address, rarely), 
* removal of physical equipment that we had brought 
  into the Turing classroom and labeled for use of 
  the Linux Study Group in Turing (frequently), 
* objections at meetings to our setting anything up 
  in the Turing classroom (occasionally, despite the 
  regular modifications in the main space, the fact 
  of sewing machines, saws and drills, a darkroom, 
  a projector in the Church classroom, and so on--
  to none of which we object, so why object to what 
  we wanted to do--add some shelving for pertinent 
  books, a dedicated server and router and switches 
  and other equipment, all available for anyone to 
  use, just not re-purpose or remove...). We can 
  not understand how our doing such would impact 
  anyone's interests (the supposed basis of consensus), 
  given the nature of the space and the inclusiveness 
  we tried to promote. 
* physical harassment of people coming to attend the 
  study group on Tuesday afternoons. 

    Generally several of us have felt hostility from 
some persons at Noisebridge. 
    In fairness, we have also benefited from the good 
will and good efforts of some persons at Noisebridge. 
    Overall, the disruptions have been too much for us 
to maintain a consistent direction, so we've moved to 
the Western Addition Community Technology Center at 
1003 Turk Street near Laguna, on Thursday afternoons 
from 3 to 5 PM.
