+
Q: Will you build this gizmo for me?
+
A: No. We'll help you build it, but we're not a job shop. We're not an engineering firm. We're not a contract house. We're a club. You can be part of the club! You can use the group's tools, and toss ideas around with anyone who'll listen. (And maybe you could strike a side deal with an individual member, but that's beyond the scope of this document.)
+
 
+
Q: What are your hours? I stopped in the other day and nobody answered the door.
+
A: We have no paid staff, and thus no regular business hours. Someday that may change, but for now, swing by when the [[welcome switch|Twitterbot]] says we're open, or during a scheduled event. Members have 24/7 card access.
+
 
+
Q: So I need to be a member to come in?
+
A: Guests are welcome any time the twitterbot says so. Stop in, flag down a member, sign a waiver, and take a tour. Then get to work on your project!
+
 
+
Q: Can I give you a pile of computer junk?
+
A: Yeah, if it's not hazmat-nasty. Really, we've got all the computer junk we know what to do with, but we can schlep it to a recycler just as easily as you can. Optics junk, laser junk, and lab equipment junk, on the other hand! Now that might be interesting.
+
 
+
Q: Can you bring your [[Twinkie Car]] to an event?
+
A: Perhaps. As with everything in the space, it's owned by an individual, specifically [[User:Nbritsky | Nick Britsky]], and you should talk directly to him about it.
+
 
+
Q: What about the Cupcake Car?
+
A: It's gone, man. Just let it go.
