Sorry for the short notice, but Cinci2600 is on for tonight.

Craig will be demoing some of his navigation system hax as a preview to the launch of the Open Vehicle Research Lab at Hive13.

We will also be discussing how to better organize Cinci2600 so there are fewer months that go by without meetings.

As always, the Hive will be open to the public, so feel free to come by and check it out!

HIVE13 Semi-Annual Open House!

June 22nd, 2012 No comments

Back by popular demand, we are hosting another open house!  We are fixing the HIVE up right now so it should be extra nice and clean for this event!  Some of the things that will be going on during the day will be soldering classes (with a special surface mount demonstration as well), resin casting, 3d printing, laser cutting, and lock picking.  You can also come down and check out some of the cool projects that our members have done and just check out the space and see what we have to offer.

The event will run at our space (2929 Spring Grove Ave.) on Saturday, July 21 from approximately 1pm to 5pm.  It will be kid and family friendly*.   (* = It isn’t the best place for very young kids, probably best if they are over 8.  There are lots of sharp objects laying about and dangerous tools).  The event is free of charge and we will have some snacks and drinks for everyone!

If you’ve been wanting to come check out the space this is a great event to look around and chat with other people. There will be lots of events going on and hopefully lots of people so clear your calendar and bring the family!

International Day Against DRM — May 4, 2012

April 27th, 2012 No comments

On May 4th Hive13 together with 2600 will take part in International Day Against DRM.  On May 4th you are encouraged to spread word about the harms of DRM.  On Friday we will discuss how harmful DRM is as well as give demonstrations on how to liberate some of your digital goods from the DRM shackles.  We plan to focus primarily on ebooks just to keep the demos reasonably small.  If you have any experience with removing certain types of ebook protections please bring any tools or techniques with you for open discussion.  At this time we already have some volunteers that will demonstrate the remove of DRM for Adobe’s DRM plus I personally have a collection of scripts for: Mobipocket (.prc/.mobi), Kindle Mobipocket (.azw), Kindle Topaz (.tpz/.azw1), Kindle Print Replica (.azw4), Adobe ePub (.epub), Adobe PDF (.pdf), B&N ePub (.epub), B&N/Fictionwise eReader (.pdb).

Cinci 2600 starts at 7pm on May 4th

Free and open to the public!

More info: Day against DRM

If you want to volunteer for demos you can use the mailing list or our g+ page.

Kickoff meeting for Cincinnati Perl Mongers

February 4th, 2012 2 comments

February 15, 2012 at 7pm in the Hive13 lounge.

This will be the reboot for the Cincinnati Perl Mongers group. We can use the projector to share a few short presentations if anyone would like to present. I plan to do some beginner level stuff about what ‘use warnings, use strict, my, etc’ are for.  Would be nice if someone talked about CPAN, favorite modules, arrays, hashes, etc. Also, informal talking about what we are using Perl for, cool technologies, etc.

http://cincinnati.pm.org/

There is a mailing list setup now so please subscribe if you might be interested in attending at some point.  Depending on the turnout for the Wednesday group can try other nights too. Nothing is set in stone at this point. If monthly meetings are too much can set it up for every other month or quarterly.

Bring out your Dead!

Mass Game Console Repair/Reflow event

Hive13 recently grabbed a PS3 YLOD (Yellow Light of Death) Repair kit from ifixit.com and went to work on 3 broken PS3s.  The teardown was a lot of fun and we were greatly excited when we were able to recover all three PlayStations!  After some G+ postings we realized the need to do this kind of event for Xbox users and any PlayStation 3 Owners out there that have YLOD.  So we will be hosting a FREE event on December 11th from Noon – 3pm.  The kits to fix these units are fairly cheap but you may want to consider contributing $5 for supplies.  Food is not provided so consider bringing a snack.

If you are interesting in attending please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ah2z1tTz_EqndFBNd21jS055LWFGTDNqR1c4d1doNUE

If you had a console die on you and you have already replaced it.  Please consider bringing in the console to fix or just donating it that day.  We will take any unwanted repaired game consoles and donate them for kids for Christmas this year.  If you just want to drop off a broken system please fill out the form just so we know how many supplies to purchase.

Event: Sun Dec 11th 12-3pm

Cost: FREE

Try to show up as close to Noon as possible.  It can take a long time to dissemble and reassemble these units.
