Penguins and such:
Shortly before the AGM, the Computer Society got a mascot Linux penguin...
The current committee and next years committee have jointly decided on the
name "Randy" for this new member. ;)
The SU has asked us to provide some open-access machines for non SUCS
members to browse the web on. We are now in the preliminary stages of
negotiating with the LIS and SU. With luck we'll be able to provide this
quickly with little disruption to our members.
Up until now, the SLC SPARCstations have defaulted to running clients on
sucs. To reduce the load on sucs, I have installed the X-clients on
great-atuin and the SLCs now default to log into great-atuin. This
will affect users who usually use clients on sucs which have not been
installed on great-atuin. In this case, use SSH to connect to sucs and
execute the client from there. Attempts to run netscape on great-atuin
will be redirected to sucs until we install Netscape on atuin.
The minutes of the AGM are now up on our noticeboard outside our lab.
I have also posted them on Milliways and on the website at:
Please note that accounts for all student members will be suspended after
September 31st 1999 if they have not already been renewed. Members will
be able to renew at Freshers Fair at the cost of 3.00ukp for the year,
however, if you are unable to renew after the summer (e.g. you are on a
year in industry, etc.) please contact the committee before or at the
beach party (provisional date - 5th June 1999) to arrange renewal.
The committee can be emailed at email@example.com.
- THIS MESSAGE WILL REMAIN HERE UNTIL THE END OF TERM -
