There are two small laser printers that we discovered amidst the room of
hardware that Tex has let us loose in. Having one at the welcome desk
sounds like a brilliant idea to me.
Thought: we could dedicate that room to computer hardware engineering,
reclamation, and repair.
Tim, can the Hackerspace use any of the server hardware we're
encountering? And what kind of connectivity do you have there?
Wondering if some kind of co-location of resources in the rack you have
there might be an option worth voicing.
