Thanks for forwarding these requests from CAC.

I will try to meet with Maria either today or tomorrow.

At the very least, I'd like to get a sense of the overall state of the lab
and all our machines (It's not clear to me how much of the dust has
settled from the summer construction).  After that, we can start reviewing
the specific user requests and assign priority to them. If there are any
urgent or readily addressable tasks, I'll try to tackle those up front
(time permitting). Following that, we can outline outstanding and lower
priority tasks by creating threads at tech at lists.partimus.org[1]

Perhaps, it may even work better still to plan on gathering at the CAC lab
one or both of the next two Saturdays. This way we can really get hit the
ground running and get the school year off to a quick start.

If we can think of any other tasks we'd like to get started on, let's add
those to the task list as well.

[1] If you're interested and/or available for technical, on-site and
hands-on volunteer work and discussion:


Our aim is conduct more of our sysadmin Linux, hardware, and technical
discussions over there, and for lack of a better system at the moment, it
may be a good way to match up various tasks with interested volunteers.
