Project: What is that?

This is a project to gather information about stuff in the clubroom by sending weekly emails to tech@ with photos of the object in question.

Currently active, maintained by Felix von Perger [FVP] (frekk at, as of 10/05/2018.

Questions to be asked include:

  • What is it?
  • What vintage is it, when was it made and when was it donated?
  • Who was involved in using, breaking, fixing or building it?
  • What was it used for? What can it do? What is its story?
  • If essential parts are missing from the photos, where might they be? What did they do and what do they look like?
  • Does it still work? How do you use it? Is there any existing documentation?
  • Is it worth keeping? Why does the club need it? Would anyone want it if the club is going to throw it out?

Information about each item will be recorded on a wiki page with photos (once I figure out how to add photos to the wiki).
