  • The OS shell assignment is due, and our student workers are sagging.
  • Three more Pis are ordered, with an undetermined ETA.
  • We need monitors. (James)
  • We need a switch. (link from Peter, order from Chris)
  • To show meshes, we’ll need a mesh reader. Let’s do OBJ. It’s been done, but let’s use this as an opportunity to learn. Right, fellas? (Eric)
  • Do we need an event scheduler. Chris suggested a multithreaded solution, when all input-reading threads populating an event queue and the renderer draining it. Peter was leary. Instead, we’re going to shoot for an event poller. Look into select in Python. (Chris)
