It's the room to the left of the darkroom/biolab ("The Otters pocket").
It currently has, in the handbasin area:
The vacuum kit, currently bring worked on by Sci. This stuff is important
and should not be messed about with in anyway.
A broken bandsaw - i talked to Phil about it recently and he was of the
opinion that it was junk and should be chucked. If anyone knows anything
about bandsaws and wants to have a look at it that would be great.
and in the toilet area:
Some long large dia. plastic tubing that was the golf ball race/cupcake
delivery system thing.
some golf balls.
some parts for an electic bike conversion (or something like that), with
an expired(?) DNH sticker - I phoned the number on the sticker but got no
reply to the message i left, it can be chucked out now.
There was a load of other stuff in the toilet area that i clared out over
the last week or 2 with a view to putting the 19in rack that came back
from emfcamp in that room, but it's clear now that we can't really justify
putting a full rack in there, and there isn't really enough room for
it anyway. (It would have to go in a corner and it would be a real pain to
mount stuff in it).
That room dosn't have power or a network connection, it also carries the
fume extraction pipe from the laser cutter and everything in the room is
covered in a thin layer of brownish gunk from mdf cutting fumes. Personaly
I don't think it's a good place to put a server cos of the fumes, but we
don't have much choice.
We could put it on a shelf high up in one of the real toilets. The noise
wouldn't be a problem and it would help to keep the toilets warm (esp.
important as we get into winter!) and the pretty flashing lights would
give people something to look at while they do there business :P
P.S. The space has a nameing scheme for servers etc:
Maybe 'neumann' since it will have multiple vm's on it?
P.P.S. in case it isn't clear to people this vm machine will be running
24/7 (as it's a replacement for babbage), The 'monster' machine is a
seperate idea, and will only be on when we are using it, and may not be i
the space for ever.
