We have stuff coming in so quickly at the moment that I haven't had the
chance to keep people up to date of what we've got.
Today I went and got 2x8 port Gb unmanaged switches, they replace the one
on the shelf near the tool cupboard and the one in the machine room. The
only problem now is that we have a bazillion 100mb switches (some managed,
others not). Maybe someone with more time than me could set up one that
has iOS and another running CatOS for members to tinker with?
On the tools front, the hot air rework station has arrived and I'm itching
for a chance to use it (someone break something!)(not the door relay plz).
We also have a whole heap of prototyping stuff on order but I'll shout
when they arrive.
Finally, I'm now looking for some good, cheap, extendable parts drawers
for all the components, as well as a bigger tool box. Let us know if you
can recommend anything, or if there's something else the club should get.
