2001, here we come!


Thanks to Jake and all the other folks at AU ITS, Repo now has a computer. It's kind of old, and it doesn't have any USB ports, so I don't know yet how we'll get the records off of it yet, but we're going to record material flow direct into a spreadsheet rather than via pen, paper, clipboard, and an unruly pile of dirty crumpled 8.5x11's.

The goal at this point is to put this material flow information onto Google Documents, and in turn generate interesting charts, graphs, and statistics. In just a few unannounced hours of sitting around setting up the computer and processing some scrap metal, close to 200lbs of material left Repo, and about 15 more were donated.


Max Davis, pictured above, was the last Repo customer of the Analog Era.
