Hey Todd!

Thanks so much for covering the museum! It's nice to have new docents in
the rotation. :)

Also thanks for taking a look at the different machines. We can swap out
that monitor for another from the warehouse. We have many to choose from.

Smart idea to just shut it down for the day when it was acting wonky.
Hopefully another more experienced member can take a look at that mac
either during museum hours or at the next workshop.

And big thanks for cleaning up the workbench! It was really needed!
