[EMS Discuss] Lets schedule a time when we can all check out the 1010 Tyinn space!

Just so everyone is on the same page, bringing more than 200A of service to the space is not a trivial task -- it would either require replacing the current main wire run between the meter/main and the shop or would require running all new conduit along either the roof or under the eaves. This would cost quite a bit of cash.   Plus, we don't know if the main service to the whole building can handle more power, or if it is already maxed out.

It was great to take a look around that space. My fingers are crossed 
that they'll accept our proposal. FWIW I like that look of that space 
for day-working and with power, wifi and basic kitchen facilities 
(fridge, kettle, microwave) I would contemplate moving there. Which I 
would expect and be willing to pay extra for. Maybe others would too?

Regarding power, yeah I suspect we would hit the 200A ceiling pretty 
quickly if we have multiple power tools, server racks, heating/cooling 
and other big hitters on at the same time. Most will only get used 
occasionally though, and with a little care don't all need to be on 
simultaneously. I think we could get by for now, but putting aside money 
to add circuits and upgrade the panel and/or banking credits and favors 
to that end would be smart.



So listen up everyone! the showing of the 1010 Tyinn space will be this 
Thursday from 5:30 to 6:30ish...
