I like the hat, but until we get the interior climate of the HF under control I don't think it'll work out too well.

I am going to work on those toilets, I am not completely sure what is in there, that should be interesting, but hopefully it will get rid of the urine stench in there.

I worked a bit on the bathrooms today, They were pretty bad, and aren't that much better but I made a bit of progress. There is some drain cleaner in the drain in the back and in the toilet farthest from the stalls.

I came in for a bit on Sunday.

I dismantled the old floating arm trebuchet and stuck it in the burn barrel.

I also removed the cover for the grill from the bottom inside of the burn barrel.

Not sure how it got in there, it was mildly damaged, but still functional.

I also moved the dumpster back to it's normal spot, and attempted to tidy up the "party area" outside a little.

I salvaged some parts of my old floating arm trebuchet, and have them labeled in the "large projects area" (I hope) in Wood. I'll be in as soon as possible to put it in a better spot.

I've also started organizing "riley's big pile of crap" by my (cough cough) "workbench", and will be coming up with a storage solution for the bowmaking station I want to set up.

It's still messy and in the way, but I have a plan, honest.

Made a cross over cable so the switch in the middle of the class room now works. Added a wifi router to the shop office. 0.181 and on channel 8?? Made a makerbot station. Formated and installed repg on spare computer that now sits under makerbot User: tcmakerbot pass is the same.

Edit:
Also plugged in the spare printer in the class room. Network printing works 0.180. Windows 7 users will need to run update to get it running.

Oh! Last Sunday also I got the plotter on the North wall of the classroom working. I printed a sign for the wood shop as an example; it is visible from the gate door. We can move on to other signage now with that plotter.

What software can drive the plotter? If I bring a vector PDF on a USB jump drive, we can easily print that? Is it CMYK or RGB?

There is a working driver for Windows XP. I found a possible hack to get it working on Windows 7, but from Internet research it seemed that the solution did not always work.

Wammie, what was the ink cartridge number, or if you can tell me for certain it was a Design Jet 600?

I will check to see if we have any ink cartridges in the recycle bin.
