  • Appointment Making System
    • A way for non-keyed members to request a keyed member be at the shop.
    • This could be a mailing list. Just something better than going around asking everyone if they can be at the shop at a special time.
    • For requests, not demands.
  • MrWorld has been using the shop more and more lately. He is willing to contribute financially to support the shop in exchange for Key access.
  • My intent is to submit treasury reports quarterly vs. monthly, so I removed it as a line item. Omegix 09:01, 26 August 2008 (CDT)
