> Yep, so we are going to do some crucial amendments to the building
and do an interior design makeover, all in one week. We did it before
in 2006, and 50 folk came from all over the continent to hang out and
build and we managed a cinema between us.

we all know it is a little bit grubby (even though today was operation
deep clean) but it is time to move onto level 2, we just need to beat
the baddy and work really hard for 1 week.
