Jon Announcements

Donations Process

  • New labels on shelves
  • Shelves will be processed at the end of each week
  • Please allow the items to go through the "Donation" process
  • Items to be loaned may be put on Donation shelves if desired and a wiki page and label will be created for you. (make sure you mark the "LOAN" box on the label)
  • Donation Etiquette
    • When a company donates hardware (teensies, LED's, Discovery Kits, etc...), lets make sure we try to post some projects on the LVL1 site with links referring to the company that donated the hardware. This is how we convince other companies that there is a value in donating items to LVL1.
    • Let's acknowledge those who make donations or put in the work to get us donations. I'm looking for someone to post a blog entry weekly/bi-weekly or monthly thanking those who have donated items to the space.
    • Please wait for donations to be "processed" before taking them. Also, remember donated items should be first given a chance to be used for LVL1 projects before taken for personal use.

(Be Excellent)

Big Room Clean Up

  • Please remove PERSONAL items from the middle of the BIG Room and place along the left wall
  • Do not move items that are not PERSONAL items
  • Items left will not be thrown away yet
  • You'll get a chance to view items again before they are thrown away

Boneyard Renovation

  • [3]Boneyard has been cleaned and organized
  • [4]Large wooden shelves are for LVL1 project storage and are NOT part of the boneyard
  • [5]Items are being sorted into bins. Feel free to take from bins, but PLEASE DO NOT put items back into bins they don't belong in.
  • The back corner of the boneyard is for "Processing" items. If you don't want to sort items back into their correct bins, please put items in this area and someone else will take care of putting them back in the correct place.
  • Items with excess stock or items requiring large storage space are labeled with dates and will be periodically brought upstairs for a "free for all" before being removed from the space.
  • Boneyard Wish List - If you are looking for specific items that are not in the boneyard, write them on the "Wishlist" board right inside the door and we'll hold it aside for you if it's donated.

Pivotal Tracker Rack

(located in Boneyard)

  • [6]A shelf is being designated for items that are to be "installed" or setup at the space.

The task requiring these items should be listed on the pivotal tracker. Example:
- Routers/Switches needing installed (designated routers or switches will be on rack)
- Handicap Rails - (rails are on the rack)
- Printer needing a permanent location and installed on network (printer on the rack) You get the picture.
