   there is no schedule. people do what they can (or 
please) when they can. 

   one burning need is for storage. seems to me the 
stuff in the turing classroom is of three categories: 
computer stuff, construction stuff, and the flat 
screen stuff (on the table near the door). 
   getting the computer stuff and the construction 
stuff off the tables makes the room useable. 
   places to put the stuff include near the big rack 
and other computer stuff near the fridge (for the 
computer stuff) as well as along the wall that 
divides the classrooms from the central walkway space 
(for the construction stuff). leave the flat screen 
stuff where it is for now. 

   look at the construction of the shelves in the 
storage closet and build another one or two shelves. 
i've got the hang of it, so just as well leave it 
for me--i'll get to it fast. 
   there's paint and electrical fittings in the 
storage closet. 

   against the west windows are planks for the book 
shelves. cut 2x4s in 12 inch lengths (nice and 
straight cuts, use the radial saw) for supports for 
the shelves. there are a few heavy cardboard 
wardrobe boxes to be used as backing (smear glue on 
the rear edges of the wood then staple or nail the 
cardboard onto the glued surfaces). there are 
various nails and glue and various tees and angle 
braces in the closet next to the electronics area. 

   the sub-panel on the south wall (west end) should 
power the lights and receptacles for the electronics 
area, storage closet, and darkroom. the light fixtures 
above the electronics area should get powered from 
the sub-panel and switched from a column on the south 
wall (look at tape tags on the south wall). bring pipe 
up from the sub-panel to the ceiling and then branch 
to the various locations (there's my bender in the 
storage closet. 
   wire up the receptacles on the west wall. they get 
power from the sub-panel on the north wall (near the 
elevator room). 
   in the middle of the north wall in the turing 
classroom, near the floor, is a box with wires sticking 
out. leave it alone till i group the red-black-white 
wires. then it'll be ready for provide power for lights 
in the dirty workshop, turing classroom, and church 
classroom as well as receptacles in the turing and 
church classrooms. 
   the sub-panel in the dirty workshop provides power 
for receptacles in the dirty workshop. use singles for 
dedicated machines; use duplexes for handtools. 
   send me email off-list and we can coordinate a 
little better.
