Re: Printer Crunch Arg

Good plan.

Also, do any of the small printers in the cupboard in the action room? Would be great to have a little one set up for emergencies.

Re: IMPORTANT NEWS: Building Sale Update

500 signatures in less than a day. Awesome. I know online petitions are limited, but this is a genuine show of strength to potential buyers. Promote everywhere! (One of the reasons we've done so well is that we've got a bunch of well-networked friends who've been tweeting and facebooking and suchlik...

Printer Crunch Arg

We've been having various problems with the printer. People were reporting paper feed errors from about a week ago, but sometimes it appeared to be working. This got confused with two other errors, which was that it wasn't printing from networked computers and that a cartridge needed replacing. On T...

Re: SPRING FLING FUNDRAISER: Callout for Performers/Voluntee

Scoutt also had the great idea that we should have a massive raffle at the Fundraiser. We can some nice prizes and have someone sell the tickets on the night. Anyone want to be in charge of that? We already some ideas for prizes, they'd just need to co-ordinate them, get the tickets, get rid of the...

FoH and Fundrasing: Callout for Makers!

Hallo artist and maker-type people! Kata and I are planning to do a surge of FoH work connected to the fundraising campaign: as well as re-beautifying the Forest space, we want to get some really clear messages in and outside the building about what we're doing to save the Forest and how people can ...

No no! Misinformation! The internet is working!

I came in late today because, when I phoned, people told me it wasn't working. But nobody actually checked. It seems to be fine now.

Re: We Have Run Out Of Internet

Thanks for the work, Mike. The guy who tried to fix the router is the American who's been spending a lot of time in Forest in the last few days, generally being friendly and chatty and ITy. I asked him politely on Tuesday not to try messing with it, because it would be easy to break things, and that...

The most common problem seems that the connection shows up fine on computers, but people are only able to access a handful of sites -- Gmail, ...
