Financial update from Treasurer $19000 currently in the bank. $15000 for emergencies. Power bill coming up. Don’t spend much money.

Financial items $300 for extra laser power supply Buzz says that we can build another one with our spare parts. He figures that seeing as our current one is offline 50% of the time, with two we might have one working more often. He has donations for other parts. Ongoing costs should be low. Buzz will champion the project. Based on plans. Nog wants to know the wattage. Being 80W laser, Nog wants to make sure there is a lock to keep it safe and legal. Hamish wants to know if we should put money in the budget for the case. Buzz says he’ll make it from plywood.

Mike says the lights are broken in the vending machines, and the light bulbs are $80 each, or he can do both machines with RGB LED addressables. Mike is going to sort it out along with Tully. James asks if white light is better for cheapness. Mikes says this is better cause we can make it do stuff.

10am on the 20th of December we'll be getting together to organise and assign HSBNE projects to anyone who wants to get stuff done. There will be food. It’s a day to find out what projects we have to finish and how to do it. Karl wants to know if we can just work it out tonight so he can get stuff done on the day. Timeka points out that Saturday IS for sorting out the projects, because not everyone is here and there is a lot of projects, but you can if they are here and you want to talk tonight. Peter asks what sort of food. Timeka says it’s a BBQ. Victor closes meeting
