The exec meeting started with a 1024ms silence, to respect the passing of a dear friend. With the release of Windows XP, and the Win9x/ME line being finally phased out, the days of one of our greatest childhood friends are now past.

RIP MS-DOS.

An idea was mooted that, in the absence of inter-university gaming, we ...

LAN party

Posted on 18th October 2001

There is going to be a CompSoc LAN party on Saturday, week 4 (27 Oct), in Lib1 (next to the library). Unfortunatly, all of the 18 places have already been taken, so we can't accept any more signups (unless you want to be on the end of a 5 long reserve list!). However, if you just want to see what a LAN party is like, feel free to turn up just to look round (without your computer, of course).

Of all the members there, they were interes...
