  1. Fixing an Arduino Nano's broken USB interface

    By tomas

    Just a quick post for anyone who's had problems with v3.0 Arduino Nano's USB not working 100% of the time.

    Recently we've been having problems with the connection between opensign and spacebot, which works by piping /dev/ttyUSB0 from another machine over SSH to spacebot. Strangely the tty device …

  5. Tuesday Roundup

    By tomas

    Biggest news this week: we held a cryptoparty at Polkon14 (the Swedish Pirate Party's northern division's conference weekend)! Activities included setting up Thunderbird with GPG (via Enigmail), getting  most of the pirates present on the instant messaging protocol XMPP (since PP already has servers for it) and learning how to …

  7. Monday Roundup

    By tomas

    Another week has come to an end. Or, it ended yesterday. But who's counting?

    The space had extended opening hours thanks to mikael popping by around 8-16 most of the week. There was more welding practice done, and MMN-o is working on computer workstations in the lab. We've also started …

  8. Sunday Roundup 8

    By tomas

    Late update this time due to sickness.

    We had a productive meeting on Thursday about how we can secure better financing and larger premises, which we'll have to act toward in the coming weeks. It turns out we're not the only ones in town with aspirations for an open workshop …

  10. Sunday Roundup 7

    By tomas

    Yet another week has passed. This week we've gotten some welding practice done by joining random bits of metal together into a little collective piece.

    The space was open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with fairly good attendance. Among …

  11. 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 …

  12. 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 …

  13. Sunday Roundup 4

    By tomas

    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 …

  14. Sunday Roundup 3

    By tomas

    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:
