|Tonight's goings-on||Sam Harmon||9/25/12 12:28 PM|
We're meeting around 7 tonight. No business meeting this week, so we'll just skip to the fun stuff:
-Continuing work on the MaxNC mill
-Think about 3D Printing- I got my QU-BD dual extruders yesterday…
-Whatever projects you bring along! (Need a project? I'm sure we can find you one…)
See you there!

Here are some available projects:
-Use a partition program to reduce the swap partition on the CNC server and install FreeDOS in that space, for use with the CNC DOS programs.
-Bring in your android device if it has a gyroscope for use with writing a program to detect it's rotation.
-Write an android program to act as a USB master for a USB device slave like a keyboard.
-Use a program on the systemrescue cd to crack the windows xp box password, than use that to set up the webcam on our google hang out.
-Use the xp box to install the Stellaris robot kit system.
-After installing Debian on an extra server, install either or both a Jabber google talk client or twinkle softphone to connect with our 2 phone numbers.
-Use an MSP or arduino kit to switch a relay for a light or siren on command for use with the above.
-Figure out how to attach skate board wheels to a stepper motor.

I forgot 2 important projects, any part of one or both of:
-acquire and install about 150' of cat5 to wire the space.
-acquire and install a wifi access point or repeater at the space, maybe using a pringles can antenna connection to the distant access point.
-And a relatively easy project that's always available is to learn about receiving ham radio signals using the radio and massive antenna.

No group brewing scheduled this evening, but the Dortmunder is ready to drink.
