OAK is cunted

Hi, Oak, in the action room, appears to have a dying hard drive. I've run lots of low-level tests and they all say bad things. A lot of blocks/sectors aren't even responding to query (with a response timeout of 5 minutes) and fsck claims to have fixed a lot of errors but then more reappear on reboot...

Hi, So the balcony was left unlocked tonight and me and Dai had to chuck people out of the studios (We didn't have a balcony key). We put chairs/ladders/boards across the stairs which I think discouraged anything further but I found at least one broken paintbrush in the hall. The organisers also did...
