   there's a plan: receptacles on black circuits, lights 
and appliances on red circuits. if you pull wires, always 
pull a white, black, and red trio and wrap tape around 
all three of them at the points where they enter and/or 
leave a box of any kind. 
   as to 240, do not _just_ grab a red and black without 
ensuring that they're connected to a two-pole breaker. 

   the panels are southwest, south east, north center (or 
northeast), dirty shop, and northwest. 
   north center is out by the stairs and is split hase. 
it controls circuits mostly along the north and east walls 
(and ceiling runs). 
   north west is in by the member shelves and is three 
phase. it controls a few circuits in the northwest area 
and it controls the southwest, southeast, and dirty shop 

   despite previous and upcoming reimbursements, I've 
chipped in hundreds of dollars of electrical parts. I 
don't mind, but I expect them to be used at Noisebridge 
and no where else. parts are in the closet where the 
rack is. 
   don't buy electrical parts from hardware stores: buy 
them at electrical suppliers such as B and K on division 
near mission because electrical suppliers have all of 
the right stuff at 1/3 the cost of hardware stores. 
   I have a stash of my personal electrical tools and 
parts in the turing classroom, and those are off limits 
to Noisebridge personages: I need them when I run off 
to jobs. 

   I'll be very grateful for help and also for 
coordination. please stick to the plan re colors of wires, 
and please install things up to code. I'm very happy to 
help and/or explain and/or inspect.... I worry that some 
shoddy work may trigger inquiries that could be more 
than embarrassing: possible real costs incurred. 
   there are a few items on the shit to do list and a 
great many more things, notably lighting, that should 
be done. anyone willing to help, please let me know: it's 
discouraging sometimes to keep plodding away by myself.
