Phone Charging Station

 Phone Charging Station

A common occurrence out our hackerspace has been phones running out of juice. We did not have an organized USB cord collection and members were often running around looking/asking for the appropriate charge cord for their particular phone. We decided to make a dedicated phone charging station with all the most popular phone charging cords.

Project Open Sesame: Building an Arduino based Access System

Date: 
Thu, 12/13/2012 - 7:00pm

 The idea of this get together is to start a series of meetings to plan and build an all encompassing security door system to be used at the hackerspace. The plan involves more than the standard RFID off the shelf systems that currently exist. I hope to document our work and publish it as we go / when we're done to help other spaces and groups with a new take on a security system. MEETING ONE will be brainstorming / accessing actual needs and listing wishful features. If time permits, then categorize the idea into over systems.

WaterLUG: The Waterbury Linux Users Group - PUBLIC INVITED

Date: 
Thu, 12/06/2012 - 7:00pm

The suggested topic is Dia and other diagramming/flowchart software. I'm making a text-based game for a class I'm taking, and I'm using Dia to model some aspects of the project. If people have experience with UML or anything like that and want to chime in, that would be much appreciated. Anything more generally about flowcharts or diagrams would be great too.
