Quite a few new faces this evening; welcome.
Enthusiastic turnout with 20 attendees, and lots of huddles-of
tech-talk. $33 + change (in gold, and flat-money) collected and
transferred into the robotics loose-change jar (for later banking).
Quick reminder: equipment donations are welcome for the trading table,
but no CRT based product, printers, toner or items that are likely to be
a disposal burden. All sales from the trading table should go into the
brown box on the wall, and are directly for the benefit of our host
club, NZART Branch 05.
With thanks on behalf of the group,
Volker gave as an update on some of his projects including an electrical
heater thermostat replacement unit.
Andrew gave the group and update on the up-coming Linux conference at
the University of Canterbury Christchurch, in 2019. Huge benefits to
volunteer for this event, and keep an eye open for Andrew’s posting
later on our email list.
Robin G talked about experience with his subterranean rocket mass
heater. Quite an undertaking. Henry added some comments on the subject,
along with some design history.
Graeme talked about Fusion 360, and had some questions for the group.
