The slushie machine is fixed, cleaned and is in the action room ready for use.

All hail Dorkbot.

Martin - pass it on to the Dorkbot cru. It's functioning. When there's time to make stuff and the machine has been cleaned and ready to go.

They're £2.50 (I think that's what Bryony charges), £1.25 for vollies and 75p for dorkbot people who made it happen. I reckon.

Today's slushi smoothies (shloozies) are made with freshly pureeeeed pineapple, kiwi, fresh mint plus apple and orange juice plus soy milk plus a bit of vanilla.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....

That sucks. Perhaps if anyone else is interested, we can dig it out and try and get it working again.

I agreed with Nix to move the machine to another residence but haven't got round to it yet - let me know if there are plans to use it and i will refrain from relocating it for now...

I know of the darkness.

We DID try to make it work in the kitchen. I would have loved nothing more than to maintain it's usage. The sad fact of the matter is Night Managers didn't clean it properly, if at all, and it was a pain to do it in the morning, especially if other stuff was left undone too.

It's a shame, another thing falls foul of volunteer negligence/Forest's inability to train NMs properly (?).

I, certainly, very much appreciated the hard work DorkBot put in to making this happen in the first place.
