Dublin Maker


I featured 091Labs at Dublin Maker 2014, on July the 26th, while presenting my "Mobile Pillow Alarm Clock" (aka "smart pillow") project.

Welcome to the new-look site


I think it keeps with the hackerspace ethos if I upload it to the live server and roll with what I have. In my defense, the 091 Labs site had a great quantity of plugins used down through the years. Even loading this theme on the front page for the first time produced some bizarre results.

Right now:

  • The header is wonky in Internet Explorer 11 because of how it handles smooth scrolling.
  • The sidebar and nav options are woefully incomplete. The CSS and logic are there, but need to be connected.
  • I need to style sidebar items.
  • There is an extra checkbox, sometimes, in the comments section, put there by an old plugin.
  • No calendar or events roll.
  • The header could be more usable at mobile sizes.

And so on.

The point is that the site is now a work in progress. Please tread lightly, and report broken features to @091labs on Twitter.
