Meetings This Week

Hello everyone! Tonight, we’ll be having a board meeting at 7 and a general meeting at 7:30, as usual. The full agenda is here.

Last week, we finished building our 3D printer! It still needs some tweaking before it can be used, but we anticipate finishing that by tonight. If you’re interested in learning more about 3D printing, feel free to come out and take a look!

Meetings This Week

Hello everyone! Tomorrow, we’ll be having a board meeting at 7 and a general meeting at 7:30, as usual. We’ll be talking about upcoming events, such as Solstice Fest and board member elections. The full agenda is here.

Last night, we started work on building our 3D printer kit we received last week, and we’re about 60% finished. We plan to finish it tomorrow evening; if you’re interested, come out and join us!

At Last!

For the longest time, we’ve been waiting to acquire something. And now, it’s finally here.

We now have a death ray!

Though it being a kit, it needs some assembly. So come on down this Sunday at 8 PM for the death ray build party! We’ll need lots of mini–er, volunteers to come help us! Especially with that fission battery…yeesh, did they have to use 2 feet of lead for the entire casing?

Anyway, this is a historic event as we become the first hackerspace to have the power TO RULE THE–erm, to have a death ray! Hope to see you there!

Update, 2241: Unfortunately, this event may have to be postponed after a certain masked menace pilfered the shipment. Blast that goody twoshoes and their annoying snot of a sidekick!

Pleasant Happenings

Greetings, everyone! I have several pieces of good news for you all:

  • The Printrbot kit has been funded, thanks to a single generous donator! We’ll be ordering it in the next week or two and setting up a build party some time later. We’ll announce it in the blog when that happens.
  • Hacksburg will be celebrating its 1st birthday a week from Tuesday, on March 31st, and we’re going to have a party! We plan to have pizza at 7 and cake at 8, so come on down for some food and socializing!
  • Ideas are still brewing for our booth for Solstice Fest! We’ll be meeting at Hacksburg to discuss it this Tuesday after our 7:30 PM regular meeting. Last week, Ben knocked together a prototype of a capacitive sensor, and more is to come!

It’s a time of good things happening for Hacksburg, with more yet to come! We hope you can join us!

PS: We’ll be having meetings as usual this week on Tuesday (3/24) at the space – Board meeting at 7 PM, regular meeting at 7:30. Come out and join us!
