to buy the coolest kit we can.
to be at the cutting edge of alternative technology.
to fix all things, without wasting too much time.
to one day live in the future.

Martin tends to fix the internet if it needs it, so it would probably live more happily in this department. Also, I think making the computers work has more in common with this group than the website group.

Yeah I think fixing the cafe's computers and Internet has more in common with this group than the website too. I don't know anything about the website and am not sure I want to. Looks complicated. There's web coding, and there's computer fixing. The fixing involves things like:

* Sourcing second hand computers and parts when the forest needs them, usually from infoseed who usually have an excess
* Installing Linux on second hand computers from infoseed, and making it so that assholes can't fuck around with the settings
* Finding a place to setup the computers. They could do with a bigger table, by the way
* Dealing with modems, routers, switches
* Running ethernet cables all over the place. Like from the forest down to infoseed.
* Repeatedly balancing on a chair in the cafe to restart all the modems and routers and the server above the kitchen when the Internet connection goes down

That sort of thing

how about:

To source and maintain the best equipment appropriate to forests multifarious needs. To one day live in the future.

- by 'source' we intend to find or recyle where possible. But consideration must be given to the urgency of the requirement and available resources.
- by 'maintain' we mean fix all things, provided it is not too time consuming.
- by 'the future' we mean, to transend from the 1990's and to actually live in the 2000's, and to really have flying cars and appartments in the clouds.

Okay I think our mission is agreed. Can we edit this thread and put the mission in the title or subtitle?
