Class on installing Arch linux on laptop encrypted drive

Would very much like to learn how to setup up a boot sector on a secondary/non-primary drive(a lot of people have windows PC's with room for second drives), encrypt the rest of the drive, and install archlinux (preferably led by someone who has a bit of experience with these things so that they may be able to answer questions about setting up encryption and Arch.

Make Haven
Ticket Purchase Required

In this online session the instructor will walk you through using a soldering iron and building the light up heart. This is ideal for a beginner who wants to learn to solder electronics and get some practice. The instructor will introduce the components of the kit.

 

Requirements and options:

Heart Kit:

Workaday Hack - DIY Phone Cradle

If you're working at home (I feel lucky to be doing so...some people aren't lucky enough to be working at home or to be working at all) this 30-60-90 degree cradle can make it easier to manage a phone next to a laptop during video conferencing. The double notch allows portrait or landscape orientation and it should be sized to hold your wetsuited phone snug. Flip it over if you'd like a more dramatic view of your nostrils. Made with 5/4 pine but anything thick enough to not tip over will do fine.

A 10 minute cloth mask (9"x6" starting size)

This is a fast, simple sewn facemask that includes a nose piece. It is designed for use with the 9" x 6" mask kits, but you can also cut material to 9"x6". This pattern also works at 9.5"x7" for a larger mask.  I was able to create a mask in about 10 minutes, and that's with some 7th grade home-ec training and a badging on a sewing machine at MakeHaven. This is written by a novice sewist for novices. You can do this!

Make Haven
Registration Requested

The MakeHaven community has been active in finding DIY solutions to the Covid-19 crisis.

This session will review the needs and the progress and status of each of the projects. Updates will be presented by team leads and there will be a brief opportunity for questions related to each project. 

Solution/ Project Leads will present in less than 5 minutes:

  • Brief recap, what is being done and why.
  • Progress since last week
  • Remaining needs (materials, knowledge, labor)

Questions will be at end of presentations. 

Shaper Tool ( Hand Held CNC Router )

As the Gerber CNC has been in development for over a year and projects larger than the Shapeoko can handle are inaccessible to members at the moment. A handheld CNC would allow a stop-gap to allow the working of much larger projects than can be contained within a table.

Moreover, as it is portable... it could conceivably be used offsite for outreach events and other engagements (provided that event sites have the proper power requirements).

16" Jointer

From Slack:
16” plus the infeed/outfeed length is a game changer; being able to joint wide components post glue-up is amazing

The fundraiser is live! MakeHaven will be matching, so we just need to reach $1000.
