So, it's been a long day of hacking and you're the last one in the space. It's finally time to go home. But wait! Aren't you forgetting something?


  1. Put your project away. Don't leave it on a workbench. Label it so others know it's yours. Name AND contact info!
  2. Put tools back in the places from which you got them, or more correctly the place where they belong.
  3. Sweep sawdust, wires, etc. from the floor.
  4. Are the trash can bags full? Throw 'em in the dumpster. New bags are in the black "Cleaning Supplies" cabinet.
  5. Is it Wednesday night? Prep the recycling bin and put it out by the pole.
  6. If you did something the group should know about, make a post to the Google group! Maybe even a blog entry!

  5. Bumble Bee/Wolverine exhaust fan switch located on West wall by the Bumble Bee
