This is just a reminder to everyone that tomorrow, Saturday Feb. 6th starting @ 11:00 am we will begin working on organizing and cleaning up the space to get it ready for the party on Feb. 13th.
If you can’t make it at 11:00 am you are welcome to come down anytime throughout the day and any help is appreciated.
Also to note, at the end of the day we will be looking to eliminate a large amount of the old CRT’s and (extremely) obsolete hardware, if you wish to retain any of this hardware or are concerned about what hardware might be discarded I HIGHLY recommend you show up tomorrow. I know our standard procedure is that hardware to be discarded must be marked two weeks in advance, however the party is happening in 1 week and the hardware has to be removed before then. I will try to only pick items for immediate removal that are (A) CRT’s or (B) extremely old and broken (AKA old empty P1 & P2 computer cases). If you would like to help strip computer cases and maybe dismantle some printers, that help would also be appreciated.
Also, some of us are planning on stopping by the UC Surplus Sale
beforehand at 9:00am Saturday. We'll meet there, check it out, and
then head over to the space to work on the clean-up. More details
about the sale can be found at http://www.uc.edu/surplus/
Thank you to the people who showed up today, we got a lot accomplished. I uploaded some pictures to flickr of the current state of the Hive. There is still a good amount of work that needs to get done but we put a sizable dent in it.
Oh, and Craig has mentioned that he will be up at the Hive on Sunday working on some cleanup work. There is a list of potential cleanup projects sitting on the kitchen table if anyone stops by before Tuesday.
And for the record, all the printers stacked against the pillar are
considered garbage-worthy unless a post-it note marks otherwise. Some
of the inkjets have good steppers/encoders and one of the laser
printers probably has a decent laser inside. If anyone wants an old
possibly-working inkjet that might have ink, this is your chance.
I’m swinging by home depot for another drill bit then heading to the hive. I should be there by 10 not sure how long I’ll stay but I’m bringing my child laborers to help.
