Meeting Minutes

Tyler started the meeting at 19:30 with the ballots for the board election.

Tyler reviewed the lack of action items at 19:34.

Phil gave the treasurer's report at 19:35 (see above).

Jake gave the facilities update at 19:37. Phil painted the welding cart and oiled the upper surface. The top on table 1 has been replaced since it got burned. Travis installed a new power switch for the laser cutter. We had 2 commercial grade powder printers donated (1 for parts that may end up working) which we're still getting up and running. We're still in the process of planning an air line for the pick and place and the sand blaster. Jake is also working with Phil on the welding curtain. We've moved all but 2 cameras to PoE for controlability which has also improved reliability. New design software has been installed on the laser/vinyl cutter control computer. The slack autoinvite button is now up. Bradley has installed phones and they work except for the one in the textiles because the ethernet drops are jank (pew pew). The audio control website has been tweaked a bit (see email).

Project and event updates: Panpoly is coming up and we're collaborating with Urban Engine for some wireless LED/battery modules and a table (see Tyler for details).

The Nerd Rummage Sale has moved to May 12th.

Ludum Dare is occurring on the weekend of April 20th and at least Hunter and Jake are participating.

Kirstin is targeting a cookie swap for the end of May timeframe.

The next meeting will occur on May 17th.
