Announcing ‘Open Source Saturday’ or OSS.
We’re starting up a series of meetups, workshops, and classes to meet the growing interest in free and open source technology. All are welcome to attend and learn why free software is a good thing.
This OSS: Workshop : SSH + Screen
Ever wanted to have access to a computer without physically being there? VNC and RDP seem too slow and clunky? Too paranoid to surf the net at a coffee shop, or just don’t trust those on the same network as you? This Saturday we’ll explore the power and wonder of SSH and Screen, probably two of the most used and useful commands. You’ll learn to copy and share files across the net, tunnel your web traffic in a safe and secure manner. Even if you already know SSH / Screen you’re bound to learn something new. At the very least, come to learn a couple new acronyms and have a good time.
What to expect? You should bring a laptop; or if you don’t have one, a healthy dose of patience.
We plan to start around 7pm
For anyone not going on the trip to Pumping Station: One, the shop will be open this Friday night starting at 7pm. Come get a tour of the space and equipment, work on your projects, and/or see what everyone else is working on! If you’re new, ask for Ed, and I’ll show you around. There may be some board games as well.
Not only is the space planning a hackathon but there will also be a Didgeridoo class and a Cacophony Club meeting. While we are not 100% sure what Cacophony club is, we know it is loud, noisy and full of circuity musical goodness.
These events are open to the public and we hope to see everyone there. For more information check out their site at http://pumpingstationone.org/.
Whether you bang it, blow it, stroke it, or just finger it, you need to bring it with you tonight. That’s right, it’s time for another hackerspace jam session! Anything that makes noise is welcome, be it a traditional instrument or homebrew. Non-musicians are welcome to hang out too, of course.
As always, guests (total strangers, even!) are welcome. We’re in Royal Oak at 322 e. 4th st, at the end of a nondescript little driveway. The art gallery 323East is easier to find, then just look across the street. See you 7ish!
Two FIRST robots, one built by team 1216 Oak Park and one built by team 3302 Clawson, are undergoing final assembly in i3Detroit’s workshop. Just two weeks remain in the build season, and there’s at least three weeks’ work to do. Situation normal! At least we’re not snowed out, like many school-hosted teams.
The end of build season is marked by “ship date”, at which time the robots are sealed in giant tamper-evident bags and/or shipped off to their competition locations. Between now and then, there are drives and kickers to finish, pneumatics to perfect, control systems to integrate, and an entire autonomous-mode program to write. Drivers need practice time, too! No wonder the pitch is a bit frantic.

For tours, just drop in before a meeting (Tuesdays 5-7pm) or any Friday evening (5-9pm).
