Welcome to the Compute Zone! This zone was established in the aim of providing space and tools for the computing needs of members at large as well as provide a venue and support system for computing oriented projects.


Open Source SIG

The Open Source Special Interest Group is a collection of people and events related to Open Source Software and Hardware. This group also supports the SEMI Linux user group which includes non-members, and meets at 19:00/7pm on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month.

Recycling and Refurbishing

Yup, we just totally went there. Well we are working on it at least.

We are interested in helping people make intelligent decisions about surviving the the cycle of planned obsolescence. Yes, I'm serious, not only is planned obsolescence a real thing I will attempt to convince you it's a 'good' thing. You just need to be smart to survive it and we all need to be smart so we all survive it. We are exploring personal computer consulting, refurbishing, and recycling. Briefly our mission is to assist people in considering computing options with which they may not be familiar.
