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. This zone is co-warden-ed by Justin Triplett and Marie-Therese Enga, please email us about your thoughts!
The Open Source Special Interest Group is a collection of people and events related to Open Source Software and Hardware. We have a number of projects going on in this group including Git Empowerment, Open Hardware power profiling, and EFF BitCoin Patronage. 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.

Follow the section link to visit the primary network page. Any local networks created for the Compute Zone will be listed below:
The Cisco equipment will be migrated to the network rack, after which the server rack can be utilized for hosting projects.
We are also now collecting data on the power usage in the building and hosting publicly for analysis. You can read more about it at the Power Meter page, at the bottom is information about access to the database.
