Financial Statement

SIG Report

Civic Hacking
 - Jupyter notebook on the community grid has been offline. Volunteers needed to fix traefic and websockets.

Interactive Computer Museum

- Museum Moved over but waiting for network drops and power. - MAME cabinet project has supplies and scheduled for the last weekend of 06/2019.

- XM Core BBS has fidonet areas have been expanded. NNTP access to these areas are underway. - Videos on Fidonet to be created and posted to youtube and talk.


Thanks to dataforge to rebooting their UUCP tier 1 nodes. VCC is getting provisioned access to UUCPNET. We'll use this for the pdp-11(sys-v) instances on the communitygrid for mail, news, listserv, fidonet, and basic/pascal/fortran programs. This will also be used to interact with the computer museum in Seattle (sdf!) and as part of a whitepaper the committee will be publishing in 2600 on darknets.

   For a fun project we've been working on getting a payphone operational. The mounting bracket has came in and we're needing to get this on the wall. Once mounted users will be able to bluebox/redbox the 
   phone, dial out to other bbs's and even make calls.
