No change, it's still a large paperweight. Electronics need to be checked for debris that may have fallen into it and could short stuff out. In retrospect we should leave a 15kV power supply uncovered so random shit can fall into it. After that, power on, see what happens to pressure.

* I filed for a DC business license and a solicitation license from DCRA (, which together came to over $600 for two years. This is so we can legally get more than $1500 in donations or grants per year, which we should aim for. Next: find & seek grants! With all our paperwork in order I think we should contact the DC government (mayor?) directly and ask if they have a mechanism to help us financially.
* I applied for a hardware donation from SparkFun and were awarded $150. We have to build a wishlist and send it to them (and complete the Program Agreement form). They want to see photos and stuff they can use for promotional purposes and I think we should oblige and hope to get more stuff from them in the future.
* I read that BUGGS got some financial support from the Northrop Grumman Employees Charity Organization (ECHO,, so I looked into that but the application asks for some info I don't have (invitation #?). So I wrote their contact and am waiting to hear back what that means.
