Bluetooth-enabled Stereo

  1. Turn on the power switch connected to the stereo to the right of the double-doors.
  2. Press "VIDEO/AUX" on the stereo input dial (in the middle) to connect it to the Bluetooth receiver.
  3. On your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or laptop device, go into your Bluetooth preferences and search for devices. You will see "Belkin HD" as one of the available devices. Pair it with your device and start playing music/podcasts/Internet streams.
  4. If you do not see "Belkin HD" then power cycle the Belkin device and search again.


Printer and Server

We have a networked monochrome duplex printer (HP LaserJet P2055DN) in the little office. If you need paper to pencil sketch on or need to refill the printer tray, they are in the middle drawer underneath the printer.


We have a Debian Linux-based server in the little office space. It provides multi-user access into the space via SSH and has local copies of open source software repositories for fast installation of donated/refurbished computers.
