Old Business

  • Jon--Awhile back we voted to buy a belt and spindle sander, we just bought Joseph's (new member!)

New Business

  • Ian--Looking at upgrading Hive lighting
    • We can no longer replace our long fluorescent lights, bulbs not made.
    • Ian has found replacement LED lights at home depot. $150 apiece. Ian will buy one and test it out.
    • Jon--we should talk to garden street before replacing lights--some discussion, is this necessary?
  • Ian--we are looking to get more pallet racks (storage shelves) for the space
    • These would go by back door--would need to move/trash the blackboard
    • Goal: improve organization, increase storage space for member projects
    • Ian found a quote in Indianapolis. Estimated with transport: $700
    • Hutch--will this be better than getting shelves from weld-plus? Short discussion followed
      • There will be an online vote with some more details.
  • Paul--will not be able to make it to Tuesday meetings
    • Someone else will need to pick up pizza! or institute cooking day before meetings?
    • Ryan volunteered if needed
    • Paul has been transporting the pizza for 5 years, and deserves a trophy.
  • Ryan--3rd saturday cleanup is coming up, 1PM!
  • Ryan--needs to order a little additional steel for the router project, contact him if you want to combine orders
  • Emily--renting out out 2 nice rooms in her attic. They are on Craigslist and facebook.

    • Ian--needs to find time to do price checking and credit card authorizations.
    • Goal: trying to save money by writing code for price analysis
    • Talk to Ian if you want to write the code. Friday Hack-a-thon?
  • Mike--Our facebook group is currently closed (you have to apply), would prefer it was open
    • Mike--People browsing facebook should be able to learn something about Hive13 immediately.
    • Dave M--another option is to create a Hive facebook page, rather than a "group."
    • Some discussion followed. Facebook page sounds good, but it's pointless unless we update it.
    • Dave M and Brandon seem to be taking the lead on a Hive facebook page.
  • Mike gave 2nd Tuesday talk on DIY-Bio.
