Nearby will be two seated workstations

What Will Be Done[edit]

The two desktop workstations at the electronics bench will be removed and placed at this new location. Standing terminals will hanging from the ceiling and provide each user with a monitor, mouse, keyboard, and space for a book/coffee. Each terminal is separated by a simple 1/4" thick wooden divider. Operating systems provided by PXE boot. Still undecided on where they will be physically located, but assume it'll be next to the kitchen.

What Areas in the Space Will This Affect[edit]

Electronics bench, table area next to the kitchen

Who Will Be Doing It[edit]

Why This Will Be Good[edit]

There is a clear space for people to use the internet and research, or just browse without bothering users.

Why This Will Be Bad[edit]

No potential problems that I'm aware of.

How Long Will It Take[edit]

It could be accomplished within a day or two

In A Fantastic World, What Extra Budget Would You Like[edit]

None

Are There Any Other PFAs This Would Work Well With[edit]

Hopefully all

Are There Any Other PFAs This Would Contradict[edit]

Jarrod's re-design would just cause the standing terminals to be likely placed somewhere else in the space.'

I think we can work out a space for these.
