[EMS Discuss] Makerspace Improvement Day!

Cleared off the AV cart, put the fridges in the office, created a base for
the router, moved some stuff around, and made a dent in the pick-a-part.
Bit of stuff got hauled off to the dump or Next Step. Routers got
unplugged, and successfully plugged back in. All in all, good progress. :-)
