It was a good turnout this week, and most of us stayed longer than usual.

Darcy attempted to fire a clay brick. It partly worked, but the process is going to need improvement.

The Windows 98 installation got corrupted, so go-go-gadget reinstall.

Meanwhile, Crystal Castles.

We also worked at setting up some lightweight software to get the most out of the pile of Dells donated to us last year. Preparing to send some out into the wild. More about this endeavor in a later post.

Makercation Nov 15th 2013

Another Friday night of Makercation. I brought my niece and nephew along and they spotted the craft box in the art room, so we dragged that down to DigiHive.

The craft session took on a life of its own.

Trey found a turtle and made it swim using pegs and an icy pole stick.

Plus some gaming.

A DOS gaming session. A DOOM remake and King's Quest running on the Linux computers.

Forgot to get photos of Darcy’s WIP cardboard terrain using the oldschool paper press. More of that next post.
