- Semi Conducter shortage is making this quite a bit harder than it should be.
- Many circuit boards have already been made but we need to populate boards with parts

- Stryker has been very useful in this project
- Stryker is using newer pick and place robots that need a new file format that KiCad does not produce
- Kharl should be able to send new panel design to Stryker
- Hopefully Stryker should be able to complete board manufacturing automatically as well.

- We are currently building a modular synth
- This is an analog synth that is composed of multiple modules to generate music
- They are generally put into a rack similar to a server, allowing you to hook the signal generators and modifiers together to make interesting sounds
- We should start putting it together soon.
- It would be cool to take it to Bronco Bash and show new students music that was made by a machine club built
- Flay will be sending us a new lockpicking kit so we can teach lockpicking again
- Hosting hackathon in early April
- We are currently working on migrating chat, vault, website, and wiki.
- After chat is moved we will wipe dot, allowing us to host other stuff using the machine
- Waiting for ccawmu.org domain transfer from typo, for now he can manually enter DNS records
- Migration is going to server on Linode instead of locally.
- We may be able to request money from school to pay for costs.
Linux Install Party
