  1. Sunday Roundup 6

    By tomas

    Not much has happened in the space itself this week - we've mostly been "playing outside". A few of us were at Tvspelsjam, playing games and proselytizing a new game developer förening that Mika is setting up. Others were at Gräv 2014, informing and helping journalists with data security stuff so …

  2. Sunday Roundup 5

    By tomas

    Sunday roundup on a Monday, breaking my posting-on-the-proper-day streak (noo!)

    First up recluster: lectus soldered a copper manifold for distributing water for cooling. The water cooling is important because server fans make too much noise for the cluster rack to be able to sit in a place where people actually …

  3. Sunday Roundup 4

    More Sunday, more roundup.

    Work on Recluster is moving along, with various pipe parts having arrived this week. I took a stab at fixing the broken bench power supply. There was an obvious problem with a blown capacitor, but sadly just replacing it wasn't enough to fix the broken channel …

  4. Sunday Roundup 3

    New Sunday, new roundup.

    The biggest news this week is that Academic Computer Club (ACC) donated some of their old servers for the recluster project. This is around 20 machines and a few disk servers in total. Pictures:

  5. Sunday Roundup 2

    By tomas

    New week, new roundup.

    Most of the activity this week revolved around recluster, mikael's low-cost cluster experiment. It seems powering it from a 12 V lead-acid battery works fine, as does the jury-rigged water cooling. Still plenty more to do on that front though.

    Some more tools have been put …

  6. Sunday Roundup

    By tomas

    This is the first post in a series of posts I plan on writing on Sundays documenting various goings-on in our space.

    This week we were open to the public on Tuesday, Wednesday,  Thursday and Sunday, and I'd say average turnout was around six per day. We got a new …

  7. Quick update regarding the site banner

    By tomas

    It is now possible to see whether the space is open based on the banner image on top of the site. Green LEDs = open!

    The image is changed whenever the switch connected to the open sign is flipped, which may not be immediately obvious. We hope to make this more …

  8. Öppetskylt

    By tomas

    För några veckor sedan blev den åh-så-välkända och synliga öppetskylten för Umeå Hackerspace klar, med andra ord är det hög tid för en bloggpost om den. Skylten visar för folk utanför om någon är inne, och styrs från en liten manöverlåda inomhus. Lite bilder:


    Manöverlådan lever inomhus.

  9. Städdag med fika

    By tomas

    Nu är det dags igen - spacet måste rensas på skrot och både den nya lokalen och mekrummet behöver uppmärksamhet. Kom förbi söndag 29:e December mellan 10-18, gör en insats och drick kaffe (kaffe!). Arbete ger kakor
