The Space (aka The Makery) is really starting to come together. A build day has been scheduled for this Saturday (March 26th, 9:37am) to see about some shelves and tables. Full details on that are the mailing list.
In other news, our local network is operational; We have Wireless-G, network printing and a functional DHCP/DNS server. Internet access, long a subject of (heart|head)ache at the space, is scheduled for install tomorrow evening.
Now, a few photos of setting up networking and the general state of things.
The Omaha Maker Group’s space is coming along nicely; This weekend saw the arrival of more shelving, tables and other materials; The space also received its first quadcopter visit; I spent time down there both Friday night and Saturday afternoon, and was very impressed by everyone’s generosity with both their time and their material support.
Multiple donations, hard work, some clever arrangement, and a bit of tinkering later: the new space is coming together! Saturday afternoon Luke came by and showed a few of us his latest successful project. I want one!
Move in day! March 5th. Someone with keys will be there by 11:00am. Bring a paintbrush, pan, and a tarp. We’re painting! Also, we can take stuff and put it into the middle of the place for now. Let’s do this!
In other news, we are now officially recognized by Instructables! A box of stuff will be coming our way.
WE ARE ON!
