[Low? Lo? was asked to leave] Low (had been at the last weeks meeting because DanF had asked him to leave previously), said some heated things to Martin, was angry about accusations of being a "creeper." Jake calmly asked him if he wanted to take it to the meeting. At first Lo agreed, then got upset, said we (NB) were a bunch of asses and threatened to "report our space to the cops" or something like that. Several folks approached, asked him to leave and Danny offered to talk with him outside. Low left on his own. [A fire alarm went off] We're still not sure where, the second floor of our building or a neighbouring one. It stopped eventually. [Failing UPS in the server rack was beeping incessantly for a while] This also stopped on its own. [A minor dog fight] A minor dog confrontation happened, Monad caught it quickly, asked the dog owner not to bring that animal back. [Pirate mike] Was asked to leave via the meeting, J.C. coordinated with him to collect and remove his projects from the space. --- A busy night with the Rebase and meeting, a lot of people hacking in the space! Overall I think people were pretty receptive to the docent/greeting area.

[Pirate Mike] Mike came buy to sort out logistics and check on projects, I discussed the current status of him being asked to leave and only to return to a meeting once giving notice to the list. I offered to relay such notice to the list on his behalf and he intends to attend the meeting tomorrow. He has a bike on the rack and two projects in the dirty shop. [Hackatorium Disarray] The group running circuit hacking monday informed me when they arrived there was a lot of unidentified gear sitting on the tables, most of which they moved into the e-waste bin, I extracted a decent looking speaker and put it in the hacker alley. [Ronnie (sp?)] Around 11p someone rang the buzzer, I answered "Hello", and asked if they were here to hack. I was then told, "Open the fucking gate, let me in", this struck me as not excellent. A couple of other people tried speaking with the person, and were basically told the same. No one present chose to buzz them in, and the buzzer was temporarily flipped off. They chose not to leave, and several people started queuing up upstairs waiting to leave. I went down to talk with them at the gate in person, and was basically told how noisebridge works, and that this was bullshit, and that because I am a straight white man, I am elitist and noisebridge has been ruined. Before being able to engage in an excellent conversation, sans [drama] flag, alex decided to let them in, at which point I said "hi, welcome to noisebridge" and requested that if they felt this sucked, they should file a complaint against me via nb-discuss with suggestions. [Laser cutter] Jake fixed the laser cutter. [Donations] I collected $XXX dollars from the donation boxes, this seems like something that could be part of concluding a shift, and would help to identify process for handing off cash to treasurer, I expect I'll be able to facilitate that tomorrow. [Pussy] I left a large menacing cat atop the electronics bench in an attempt to scare away mice. [Do'h] I left a shit load of personal belongings in the bathroom, which were promptly returned to me. [MC Hawkings] Was loaded into the back of a pick up truck bound for sudo room.
