Great, wish I could be there - next week though ...

I'm keen to extend the scope, so Ned was there any response from Gus(?) 
abut the Shapeoko? I'd build a trolley and dust collector for it.

The Biodigester that we're building is also the kind of Maker-thing I'd 
like to see work extend into.

(Then there's the digested 'nutrient solution' that comes out, it will 
be very suitable for hydro/aqua/pee-ponics. And of course the gas output 
will need sensors ... )


GitLab looks awesome. Not to organise myself well enough to use it ...


I'll go shopping for a 'garden window' for the back wall next I'm in Newy.
