Welcome to ACKspace; a hackerspace located in Heerlen, The Netherlands.

A hackerspace is a place where people get together, socialize, share knowledge, tinker and build stuff.

In order to make this possible we have a collection of tools, (useful) stuff, work area and a lounge where we can relax and discuss our favorite games.

On 26 februari 2011, 4 days before the official key handover and a month before the official opening party, we were allowed to participate in the collective xCBS open door days. This date can be seen as the officious start of hackerspace ACKspace. The only public event before that was the hackerspace kickoff in cafe Pelt

We only had a beanbag, lack rack, a couple of chairs, an amplifier with some speakers, a LED display and a logo.

Short description: S.H.A. 2017. Successor of OHM2013.

Like many other hackerspaces, some of us (ACKspace) are also going to attend this conference. It would be awesome to attend the conference as Village:ACKspace.

attending

Some people wish to go earlier then the 4th of August and may want to leave later then the 8th. To make traveling and hauling stuff easier it's probably best if people 'try' to sync their dates. See 'travel plan' and 'bringing stuff' for more info.

Name Attending date Leaving date Can drive Has car
xopr
Prodigity Flexible, but not later then the 4th Flexible, but not earlier then the 8th Yes Not sure yet, will update..

travel plan

Parking tickets and gas are expensive so carpooling or public transport seem like the way to go.

There will be a shuttling service from Nijkerk station to the SHA2017 terrain but I'm under the impression that the service will only run from the 4th till the 8th and thus not be of use to people who might want to go earlier / later to help with setting up and breaking down stuff.

Google maps shows that walking from the train station to the SHA terrain could take up to 2 hours which is probably not a fun experience when you're carrying four days worth of camping stuff + random crap.

Seeing as a lot of people went to OHM early I'm going to 'conclude' that carpooling would probably be the best way to travel.

bringing stuff

We need to bring stuff.. only not as much stuff as we had with us during OHM because that was full retard and you should never go full retard..

  • A big tent, the one we had @OHM was very nice but it wasn't ours unfortunately and our own party tent died before I even set foot on the terrain... Can we do better this year? :')
  • Fridge was very handy, though we do need a big waterproof tent to house it.
  • Chairs and tables are available for rent at the event for the modest price of €2,50 and €15,- respectively.
  • Power extension cords
  • WiFi router and some network cables
  • Club-mate and survival food so we don't immediately need to go shopping day 1
  • Kettle for coffee, tea, noodles and other food/drink stuff
  • .. coffee, tea, noodles and other food/drink stuff ;)
  • Toiletpaper
  • ...?

I quickly conjured up this list so feel free to add stuff if I left something out. (Which I undoubtedly have!)

Description Awesome lighting for vending machine (Revival in progress)

Getting the vending machine to work! (In progress)

Picture
CokeVendingMachine.jpg

At the ACKspace building one of the tenants found a CocaCola vending machine. After consulting CocaCola as well as the caretaker, the machine got a new owner who sells drinks at the profit of all tenants. However, the fluorescent lighting of the machine was broken. So we decided it might be fancier to replace the fluorescent lamps by multicolor, ledstrips.

I created a small pcb with an Atmega328 and a few IRF510 powerfets connected to the pwm outputs of the micro controller.

PLEASE NOTE: the above was an old setup that was taken out by someone unknown. New lighting is being worked on and should soon be fully active. In the meantime we will keep the old situation documented here.


The project has been revisited by other members to get the machine to work. Currently we found out that you are able to access more options if you set/enter the passcode (See inside of machine). The idea is to use an iButton reader OR barcode scanner (Implementation of the AckBar software) as a replacement of the technologically obsolete value that is called cash money. Mechanically the machine is working, it is just the software that needs to be edited (and in the case problems ARE found, they need to be fixed.).

The manual for the vending machine is found on the Royal Vendors website (direct link), the manual itself is also found one the wiki for archival's sake: File:GIII.pdf.


Some small troubleshooting steps and basic measures.

  • Is something sold out? Refill and close the machine.
  • Is it still sold out? Close the machine again.
  • Do you need to get into the developer menu? Press the red button after opening the machine.
  • Is an option not showing in the menu? Enter the passcode.
  • Did you press a button but get a different drink? Make sure the Custom Space-to-Sales setting is set to match the information below.
  • The rear columns need the bottlecaps facing towards the backplate, the front columns need the bottlecaps facing the opposite (the backs of the bottles facing each other).

Which bottle goes where inside the machine:

Button Column Drink
1 1,2 Mate Regular
2 4,5 Mate Ice-T
3 6 Mate Granat
4 7 Coca Cola
5 8 Coca Cola Zero
6 9 Fanta
7 3 Premium Cola (0,5l)
8 11 Sprite
9 10 Water
10 12 Magic coding elixir - 18+, username is needed

Raspberry Pi

We have connected a Raspberry Pi to the internals of the machine. A very simple script is currently running which enables you to send GET requests in order to retrieve a drink. To do this, you need to be connected to the ACKspace network. Connecting to http://vendingmachine:8080 in the browser will give you a JSON response which contains the buttons that are set up and the drinks that are linked to the buttons. When you want to "press" button 1 on the machine you need to visit http://vendingmachine:8080?button=1. The physical buttons still work as well.

Short description:

Vanaf heden is er elke 1e zaterdag van het kwartaal een deelnemersvergadering: de pizza-meet!

Deelnemers kunnen van te voren hun stukken inzenden naar Xopr (secretaris) of via de discussion page en via het bekende info emailadres.

De eerstvolgende meeting is op Saturday, 1 April 2017

agenda


The STACKspace, also known as storage or stockroom within ACKspace, is where all the stuff is stored that is not used on a daily basis, like a barbecue

The telephone extension number is: 103.

opruimactie

Het is de bedoeling dat we op korte termijn de STACKspace gaan uitmesten. Om dit een beetje te orchestreren heeft xopr een bestandje gemaakt zodat elke deelnemer de krat kan beoordelen in zijn eigen tijd. Print Verwijderlijst.pdf als A5 (ofwel, 2 pagina's per vel), geef het een uniek volgnummer (bij voorkeur uint8_t, oplopend tellend vanaf 1, xopr kent jullie al langer dan vandaag), en markeer onder jouw username wat volgens jou de status is:

  • MINE: krat bevat (gedeeltelijk) spullen die jouw eigendom zijn (had gemarkeerd moeten zijn)
  • Want: krat heeft dingen die je wil hebben (en dus mee naar huis wil nemen)
  • Keep: spullen in de krat zijn van meerwaarde voor de space
  • /care: boeit je niet wat ermee gebeurd
  • Trash: rommel, dit kan weg (eventueel waardevol als doneer-materiaal voor 2k15 interhackerspaces xmas swap
  • Note: extra informatie die je kwijt wil (over de krat + inhoud)

Krattenclassificatie

Deze kratten hebben al een genummerd 'Verwijderlijst' blaadje (en zijn eventueel al geclassificeerd (print meer blaadjes uit en voeg de nummers toe aan deze lijst):
