Moving Day Approaches for The HeliOS Project


Luck broke our way and in a big way.

Darrel Raynor, the Director for Asset Management for The HeliOS Project has secured for us a warehouse and office. It will be free of charge for a while...

You have no idea what a relief this is.

Instead of working out of a large, converted metal building with minimal climate control (do closed windows count for climate control?), we will have an actual warehouse and repair facility for our work. I even get a desk.

Go figure.

At any rate, we are looking to move the first week of November I am thinking. What we might well need are a couple of volunteers to supply a truck/van to move the computers and various components/boxes we have as well as giving us a hand in bringing them into the facility.

There is quite a bit to move.

I realize this is short notice but we need to vacate the facilities currently being used in order to stop any further rental fees from being brought to bear. The 500 dollars we are now spending on space and facility rental can now go to more important things....

Like securing machines needed to do what we do. If you can help, please contact me at helios at fixedbylinux dott kom.

We are also going to need shelving and some fairly sturdy tables. Skip Guenter has volunteered to do some carpentry work for us with one condition.

I am not to pick up or even enter into the room where power tools are being used.


Thanks for giving us a hand.

Good call, Skip!

Seriously, well, that WAS seriously... We will need shelving STURDY -- to hold the inventory. I've already arranged a drop off of 4 machines for next week!

This is going to be great fun.

As usual, the Austin crew gets to have all the fun.

Really, carpentry WITH power tools.

I am sooo jealous.

Skip, you must know Ken well.

Ken, I would like to assist you if possible. I have been reading your blog for a while and I just moved to the area. I have a decent sized pickup truck (f250) and don't mind helping out if you still need it. Shoot me an email if you're interested.
