March 14th Repair Café Postponed

We have decided to postpone the Old North End Repair Café due to public health concerns around gatherings. We are still planning on hosting the Repair Café on April 18th, 2020. We will provide further updates on our Facebook page and here at laboratoryb.org.

We’d like to thank everyone in the community for their interest, as well as everyone who signed up to volunteer. We are greatly looking forward to our debut, so stay tuned!

Feel free to message us on Facebook or send an email to [email protected] with any questions.

Jumping the CoreOS Container Linux Ship

The end is within sight for CoreOS Container Linux: May 26, 2020. For a few years now we’ve made use of Container Linux for hosting the laboratoryb.org website. Sadly, this is where our CoreOS journey ends, with end-of-life coming right around the corner.

We’ve finally jumped the CoreOS ship over to Flatcar Container Linux by Kinvolk, an OSS fork of the original project. Everything has been faithfully copied over and is once again running smoothly.

Thanks to Kinvolk for keeping the Container Linux legacy alive!
