Diyode Meeting - Sep 02, 2015

Topics Discussed

Hillside Lighting Truck ... Alternative Energy Options (Ed's Idea) - Diyode-Quassel

Ed finds that the generators at Hillside are noisy and smelly, and they are often left on during the day when they are needed mostly at night for lighting. He would like to design a solar system with batteries to help keep fossil fuel use down. Chris Zimmerman said he would help.

label items in the clean room to be sold - automageek

some items have been given to the metal recyclers. We will gather the redundant tools for sale once we have them gathered.

The Guelph Public Library is hosting its second annual Tech Day at the Main Library on Saturday November 14, 2015 from 11am to 2pm. - automageektu

Last year's Tech Day was busy, and many had not heard of Diyode. Eva will be there, and will find more volunteers closer to the event.

Community wellbeing grant: http://mayorguthrie.com/2015/08/31/guelph-wellbeing-grants-applications-now-open/ - simonclark_thr

Simple application. The laptops that were bought with the last grant have been well used, and are still in service. Aim for the next grant could be a 4 x 8 CNC machine.

truck has low brake fluid - needs to be serviced - automageek

Dave Carpenter to ask the garage what went wrong. This issue doesn't make sense as the brakes were serviced recently.

website update - Diyode-Quassel

Simon is working on a beta version of the Diyode site, to update it and include links for members. It is beta.diyode.com

training - Diyode-Quassel

Brennan is checking with Terry about the planer and jointer so that Terry can show people the use of those tools.
