Weeks 006 through 009

Well those weeks just flew by, and lots of stuff happened. Business is picking up for sure but the growth is manageable, which is nice. We'll see how it goes when school starts.

We are investigating the possibility of getting power from the building instead of running generators. The generators have been great for the most part in terms of reliability but they are a drag to lug around and keep gassed and so forth. They aren't exactly cheap to run either, so shore power would be most welcome.

Thanks go out to John Quintos of Cento, Vega, Special Xtra and a zillion other projects, not least of which is a secret new spot in an undisclosed location. We wouldn't have made it this far without his help in a number of ways, and we're not sure how he has avoided being mentioned here so far.

We are still meeting new people, which is always exciting. Hewn is even newer to the neighborhood than we are. We also discovered that there is a Sennheiser lab/office nearby, which is cool. I also don't think we have mentioned Partridge, Waterworks, Noise 13, Roll bike shop, or Dos Piñas yet either, and they've all been here all along. We talked with one guy from Flixter who says they're nearby and working on some cool new things. Oh, also it's been a little while now but the blog post that we mentioned a little while ago went up, thanks Creativebug!

Some people have asked what we're listening to, and most of the time the answer is KFJC. Our internet connection is a little spotty on the corner so we usually queue up some stuff from their broadcast archive and let it go for a few hours at a time. We're partial to Cousin Mary, Robert Emmett, and Ms. Tiza but there is a ton of variety and lots of other good stuff on almost all the time. It is tough to find (even a college) DJ who will play much in the way of chiptunes though, so sometimes we have to take care of that ourselves.

I know I have mentioned this before but if you arrived here via a mass email which you would have preferred not to have received please let us know via one of the usual methods. In addition (or instead) of email there is also a feed if you would like to keep up, and of course there are tweets if you swing that way.
