Blog post: Tuesday, Welcoming the poor weather

It was very quiet this Tuesday.  I suspect the poor weather combined with people preferring the 3D printer night on Monday and the Robots day on Wednesday.

Nevertheless, we greeted a few new visitors and the die-hard members made sure it was a hive of production and hacking!

For all those frequent readers of hackaday.com, we’ve created an entry in their hackerspaces listing.  You can have a look at http://hackaday.io/hackerspace/734-CCHS—Melbourne-Hackerspace and even add yourself as a member if so inclined.  It’s also a great place to have a look around at what other spaces around the world look like!

We’ve also made some updates to this site (thanks Stuart!) the calendar in the right hand bar should now load quicker, and you can get more details simply by hovering.

Blog post: Redecorating the back room

We’ve been a bit light on photos for the last few weeks, but here’s a bit of an update.

You’ll notice in the last few shots that the back room has had a bit of a makeover.  As you can see, we’ve still got a fair bit of junk piled in the corner.  We hope to be cleaning this out in the coming weeks so if you spot something that’s yours or can make use of, grab it or mention it on the list.

Just a shout out that we’re always looking for more duty officers (and photographer/bloggers!) and the army of tireless volunteers that help make Melbourne Hackerspace awesome are keen to swell their ranks at any opportunity!  Let us know on the regular mailing list (or the committee one) and someone will show you the ropes!

Blog post: I swear, my photos are getting blurrier and blurrier!
