All,
As you are probably aware, Andrew Jacobs died at the end of last year from complications following COVID-19.  
He left his electronics stuff to rLab to dispose of as we see fit. Having sorted through it we have pulled out things
that are useful to rLab, things that may be useful to other hackspaces, and what remains is open for
members to take for a reasonable donation. The items listed below, as well as numerous smaller items
and one heck of a lot of Microchip PIC chips will be available for users to view and take away for a donation
for the next 4 Wednesday evenings (1 Sep - 22 Sep Inclusive). If you are unable to make these sessions and
are particularly interested in something specific please contact any of the directors. Anything that remains after
that time will be disposed of.
There are a number of partially completed projects, and those of you who knew Andrew may recognise a number of these.
If you want to take any of these on as projects that would be great, but otherwise open to breaking for parts.

We expect members to respect the spirit under which these items are being made available and be sensible when
taking items. Please do not for example take a whole bag of switches, take a reasonable number and make a
sensible donation with regard for their value.
Vance

Hi,

I was an early member of rlab joining at the same time as Andrew and helped him in a small way on his PDP projects. I am no longer a paying member but am interested in the PDP 8 project material – are these three identical items?

Hi David,
They're not identical, we don't know enough about them to tell what
sort of state they're in or how complete, they were just boxes labeled
as "PDP8 Emu".
You're welcome to come along on Wednesday evening and take a look.

Steve

Hi David, missed you on the 8th, but the PDP-8 stuff is still there if
you're able to get in on the 15th instead.
