Before we had the Space Probe, people would write to the mailing list - but it’s easy to forget to email, especially if you came in to work on non-computer-centric projects or if you need to leave in a hurry.
Here is a video about using the Space Probe:
The Space Probe is made out of a laboratory power supply that I spotted in a dumpster and looks like this:
Inside the probe enclosure is an Arduino clone wired in and using a Freetronics EtherTen as an HTTP server, for a simple web API (More info). On the router is a program written in Lua, which performs all of the probe’s functions. Source code is all online here.
The server-side portion of the Space Probe configuration at MHV is documented on the space wiki.
