Guff

General stUFF, Guff consists of all of the things (well, consumables) at the hackerspace that don't belong to a particular person, and are available to use. The general rule is that guff does not leave the space (you don't take it home for a project, or for personal use). But on the other hand, once something is part of a project or hack, it's no longer guff.
