Vinyl tape for the speaker grills.

You'd have to mount the equaliser knobs on servos so they can dance up and down... ;-)

We have our removal date as: 13th and 14th June 2014! This is fast approaching! So i'm just calling out for some help with moving our stuff and rearranging the DSN stuff for that weekend.
You can put in an hour, or a few.. ANY help would be greatly appreciated. I'll have a ute and a trailer to move items, so just a few hands would be awesome. Thanks! Just comment below of you can help out either or both days. Amanda

Hey everyone, I'm just wondering if I can get access to the space next Saturday at 11.30. If any of you remember someone contacted the group asking about 3D printing lessons and courses and I have taken them up on that request. I don’t have anywhere I can really do this other than the spaces so I’m going to need either a key or for someone to come open it for me. Thanks in advance 

Alex.

Hi all,
Would any talented web page designers be willing to create a web page for a community organisation in Toowoomba.
They are called Activ8, and support people with disabilities of any kind to become active in the community. They are willing to pay something for it, and we could use the funds right now!;) comment if you are keen!

Hi everyone, I thought I better get around to introducing  myself to any one I haven’t met yet.
My name is Alex and 3d printing, cad and back shed tinkering is my thing.
Im not all that great with electronics or computers but I get by.
Any way the project I’m working on at the moment is a cnc router and im looking for someone to help me on the electronics front? 
And to anyone interested I got my printer working (finally)

Hi guys,

Me again! When I was at the space printing up the Bunnings letter, I printed about 10 copies of the guardianship forms and 10 copies of the member details forms. I believe that in a previous meeting, we decided to use these forms in case of emergency, and it is to be filed in the filing case that we have at the space. Would everyone be comfortable in filling out one of these forms to keep at the space? it will be only referred to- in case of emergency.

Sounds like a great idea.

Hi Team,
I've created an article for the USQ Ashes magazine titled "Is 3D Printing Affordable for Students?".  It would be great if you could have a quick proofread and send through any editing.  Cheers.

article is good, but the slang may be a bit over the top. It depends how comfortable you are with the vernacular, it feels a bit forced, but I'm a long way from contemporary teen culture.

Hi again!
I'm just wondering if anyone knows of a music maker program-( hard to explain, but picture different instruments such as drums, a piano, flute) that respond when clicked with a mouse? It could create and record a melody using different simulated instruments, and be able to load onto a Raspberry Pi ;) cheers

Hi all, it's Nick Meinhold here. My G+ account is linked to the Hack This Page account (it was meant to be transferred to someone when I left Toowoomba but it hasn't been decided who's taking it over yet). It seems that some behind the scenes settings have been changed by Google and my personal account is no longer visible as a member of the Community. As such I can't Join Events as myself or comment here (other than with the Hack This Page account). Does anyone have any suggestions for fixing this? I think when the Hack This Page account is transferred to someone else they may also have this problem so it would be good to sort it out. Cheers!

Could you maybe transfer ownership to Hackerspace Toowoomba: hackthisemailtoowoomba@gmail.com? It appears that they need to be a manager for at least 2 weeks first though..

Ok guys

As you know- our space is growing and the space is getting smaller! I may have found a solution!. Depression Support Network as offered a shared space with us. It is directly across the road from centrelink, and they may also be expanding to the place next door (same size!) which will give us a HUGE amount of space! It also has NBN getting connected soon! It also has a kitchenette and DSN is an inc. assoc. and willing to give us as much room and keep all the equipment there too!

The clear advantages would be:
Lease cost is only $350 per month for full access
Full access on weekends, and DSN is only there currently from 11-2 wed fri and tues.
Air Con
Halves in power bill (or less)
Heaps of powerpoints!
an extra small room also
Very secure (there is a dead bolt PLUS padlock) and we can still play around and change this to RFID access etc
Street frontage in CBD
NBN
kitchen

Possible disadvantages:
Sharing the space
breaking the lease at station st
Changing details
Let's discuss at next meeting! check it out!
