    I’d like to nominate @ColeVanD for some kind of recognition for his herculean 100th Hack performance. Not sure what form this should take - I am sure we can come up with something.

    Cole - for the record - how long were you here, what did you did you do, WHY DID YOU DO IT!?!?!?

    Good work, man. One for the books.

    @ColeVanD

    Yes, a Keyholder will have to be in the building and ‘open’ it, for a drop-in to enter with RFID. Otherwise, there is no distinction between, or incentive to become, a Keyholder.

    BUT: the issue of a Keyholder having to keep the door locked because he or she is upstairs will be eliminated, which is important. For example, I am here often upstairs and do what I can to run down and open up for peeps, but I must keep the door locked to avoid unauthorized random entry. RFID will solve that one.

    Also, the Makerspace needs to nurture and grow solid KEYHOLDERS - these are the people who are committed to the Space, do the volunteering, develop the operation and enjoy the benefits of a 24/7 well-equipped Space (which at $100/month for 70002ft of shop is, frankly, ridiculously cheap) which they manage and shape themselves.

  • RE: project using the ssp plywood

    @Bradley-Maker its no problem, now that the Forum knows what happened.

    The issue for is that we need that Makerspace-marked SSP-donated material for doing the Kiln Room and Classroom renos, and the sheets are clearly marked both with green tape and edge marking. I notice you might not have realized there is the classroom reno to consider, as well, in your calculations of what material is required - for future reference, its probably best to check with key people who know the status of issues such as this - me, in this case, as the coordinator of the SSP donation and Kiln Room / Classroom install.

    My understanding is that you will replace the Dave Holley sheet (if he wants) and the Makerspace sheet of formply with your own.

    Members: please post to the forum when these kinds of moves are made so everyone knows what is going on. Also, check materials on all sides and faces for maker-marks denoting ownership/purpose prior to using them.

    @Bradley-Maker Once we do have RFID are we going to require having a keyholder in the building. I automatically assume yes to having a keyholder in the building at all times. And Im also wondering how the RFID will translate to the forum’s Makerspace open button.

    So many questions that I should bring up at the next meeting.

    I just did. Although they did already have a clear marking both in tape and the edges of the boards.

    But seriously - knowing that you dont help yourself to clearly marked, $125/sheet material like that without asking shouldn’t need a sign.

    We should put better signage on the sheets ASAP.

    There is also a sheet marked ‘KMS’ that has been ripped into 16" lengths, and I have no idea why.

    The Makerspace marked formply sheets are earmarked for the kiln room and classroom renos - I don’t know who is helping themselves to them without checking with others first, but those sheets are not to be used for random projects.

    Has anyone spoken up about this, @Chainmaildave ?
