19:46:25@_slack_biohackspace_U047HN45P:matrix.orgczechton was just figuring out if i should be setting this weekend aside for hackspace or doing other things
19:46:48@_slack_biohackspace_U047HN45P:matrix.orgczechton power looking brilliant!
19:47:34@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus Sorry for the delays. I didnt get to meet the guys I wanted tonight, update in a few days when I do.
19:48:16@_slack_biohackspace_U047HN45P:matrix.orgczechton no worries these things happen
19:54:15@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus Such a coincidence you messaged just as I arrived at the lab to aee what had happened while I was away!
19:56:00@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus Anyway, everyone in the hackspace is impresed with the progress, we are not at risk of losing for the sake of a delay, especially as we’re waiting on the space to deal with electrical.
19:57:48@_slack_biohackspace_U06G73G65:matrix.orgajp I wish I had the skills to help with this... I only know how to turn things off and then change a light switch! 😄 😛
19:59:29@_slack_biohackspace_U06G73G65:matrix.orgajp Sorry I meant to reply 4BMSGS9W I am up for helping with wood work!
20:56:23@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus It’s ok 06G73G65 we’ve got the skills, is just being patient with people’s availability, everyone being volunteers.
23:03:37@_slack_biohackspace_U051T2WF8:matrix.orgbiomike I've been out of the loop for a few days. I'll try to drop in on Thursday and fit the rest of the sockets. Slighyly annoyingly I there weren't enough conduit bits in the Space to fit the whole lot. I'll grab some more from Screwfix and finish off the wiring. I'll need Phil's help to run the cable back to the CU but it will be on the side wall, so once I',m done on Thursday we should be good to unpack I think
23:03:59@_slack_biohackspace_U051T2WF8:matrix.orgbiomike That said, we should probably take the oppertunity to clean the windows and maybe have a think too if we want to do something with the bench, as they existing work surface looks a bit tired
23:05:39@_slack_biohackspace_U051T2WF8:matrix.orgbiomike Not wanting to speak on behalf of the group or leadership but the fit out has been silly cheap so far (ie the Space has footed a lot of the bill), so maybe we can treat ourselves to a new worktop if people think that's a good idea?
23:05:54@_slack_biohackspace_U051T2WF8:matrix.orgbiomike We do still need to arrange a fridge and -20 freezer
23:50:04@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus No we are not good to unpack, there’s a nimber of outstanding tasks. Work top overlay is already included in that.
23:56:38@_slack_biohackspace_U051T2WF8:matrix.orgbiomike What's on the todo list?

00:06:04@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus Off the top of my head, In various states, main ones. Your wiring, wiring above ceiling, floor, worktop, radiator, non-show stoppers, fix hot air blower, take delivery of shelf unit, shelves inside cupboard. Should all be done in about 10’days. Windows hav been cleaned, outside anyway.
00:10:22@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus And various mnor repars, fixes. And work out where the hot water supply on the ground floor has gone.
00:11:47@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus People lined up, just fitting it in with their free time. Have to reorg now I’m over bronchitis
00:13:05@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus And door bot, kicked that one off but need to finalise.
00:15:13@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus And fingers crossed the trustee election results (thursday?) dont throw a spanner in the works
12:26:22@_slack_biohackspace_U047HN45P:matrix.orgczechton just a random thought that might not be worth dwelling on too much if its too complicated: Could the plumbing form the unneeded sink be used to connect a dishwasher? Curry's do dishwashers for £180 and normal household ones are perfectly capable of washing lab glassware (provided you don't put rinsaid in them).
12:26:49@_slack_biohackspace_U047HN45P:matrix.orgczechton Would be nice for people to have less washing up work
13:08:56@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus Good idea 047HN45P thoigh this wont be a hold-up
17:12:14@_slack_biohackspace_U051T2WF8:matrix.orgbiomike Off the top of my head, I don't think a dish washer would be a major issue

18:34:07@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus Heavy work today
18:35:26@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus By Robbie mostly
22:44:16@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus For a number of reasons we have decided against a hot water radiator, not least because the other hackspace members enjoy seeing white coated biohackers huddling together for warmth like penguins. But we’re repairing the hot air blower and there will be electrical hot air heating above the door instead so you dont need to ask santa for thermal underwear.
23:28:24@_slack_biohackspace_U047HN45P:matrix.orgczechton angle grinders and sparks are always a good sign

16:44:14@_slack_biohackspace_UE839LH7Z:matrix.orgljkay23 So is the blitz likely to be in January now? Just taking a look at my calender, as I'd like to help out ^_^
16:57:58@_slack_biohackspace_U4BMSGS9W:matrix.orgpaniscus Yes January. On current form we’ll be done before end month, assuming deliveries get through. Bells and whistles like shelves insode cabinets may be delayed although I have spoken to a woodworker.
