David from Nottinghack -- the hackspace in Nottingham, England -- writes, "It's been six months since we moved into a 4500 square foot hackspace, in large part thanks to Boing Boing featuring our cause in May. We'd like to extend our heartfelt thanks to you, and to all of the people who generously donated to keep the hackspace going. For those who requested it, we've painted your names on our wall, and made a time lapse video of the final coat going up. There's also now a hackspace manual showing a lot of the projects done and facilities now available at the space. Membership has been growing steadily ever since we moved in, and as a result, among many things we've been able to put in place laser cutters, CNC machines, a metal lathe, PCB etching equipment and bicycle repair facilities. All things we had no room for at the old space!"
