This post is a "stub" for you to reply and add your good suggestions for things to bring up in my first meeting with the heads of the schools.
Here are a couple I already got:
1. Have a Nespresso coffee machine (with capsules). I already asked for a price quote from the supplier, and if relevant, will post an update (thanks to Ricky Rosen for the idea).
2. There a lot of computer scrap and crap lying around the open-space (and I don't know what's the situation in the rest of the labs - but I assume it's better). If you have some parts (monitors, keyboards, mice, and some other stuff) that can be gotten ridden of, mark them, and I will try to organize with the system team to collect it all and move it to their storeroom.
Now it's you're turn - reply to this post with some more ideas.
