Hardware list for lab and brief update

We're making progress on the construction! The new carpet installation will be finished today and I have to say that I (and others) think that it looks quite cool! In fact the new carpet looks better than that defective carpet that we received (a deeper color and more resistant to dirt, etc.). Some of the special lighting (sconces for over the console stations) should arrive today and hopefully we can deal with the locking issues around the fancy (but beautiful!) new door today as well.

We have delivery of the furniture scheduled for tomorrow! All of the computers, equipment, etc. (apart from the BARCO projector) is waiting in department storage to be put into the lab...just a few days away!!!

Because there's not much to report I thought that I would put together a complete list of all equipment that we're installing for the lab and post that here. I thought that I had done this...but I guess not...

Oh...one thing more...Froggy and I will be hightailing it to Best Buy this afternoon and picking up the consoles, some equipment, and an assortment of games to start. We should have a blast!

OK...here's the complete list (many details have been omitted to keep this a reasonable length...

Oh...one more thing...I've been talking with ITS people here on campus and have requested getting G4TechTV on campus cable...and we should now have it (channel 95 if I'm not mistaken). You will probably have all kinds of feelings about the channel...but we'll be showing it 24/7 (well during the day at any rate) in the Lab on a large TV!!!

Ok...enjoy and see you soon!

It's just called G4 now. Remember when G4 bought TechTV just for it's viewer base, and all the on-camera people left? I'd rather get nasatv. Seriously, I like nasatv.

Man, it must be fun to get grant money to spend on consoles at best buy. And I can't wait to see these 24 inch LCD's.
