LAN Party

Posted on 23rd October 2003

We have been informed by Senate House that we are actually in Lib 1 for the LAN party. This is the downstairs room, which means you don't need to lug your computers quite so far :)

Wireless Hotspots

Posted on 21st October 2003

Richard Oakham (Zatneichatel) has put together an excellent page in the LUG wiki on how to use the IT Services hotspots around campus, including getting Linux to co-operate with them. Well worth a look: now you too can IRC from Airfare!

Social Events!

Posted on 19th October 2003

CompSoc have two important social events coming up:

The first LAN party of term is at the end of next week. Signups are full, but don't let that discourage you - someone may well drop out, so it's worth signing up on the reserve list.

Also, on November the 15th, we are going to see The Matrix: Revolutions, only a week after it opens! Signups are now open. Be sure to give your money to an exec member by November the 1st, otherwise we can't book your place.

h4. Servers

This week, we have been plagued by further issues with reliability, all of which have been unrelated to Molotov itself: ITS are migrating to a layer 3 network as well as to a gigabit connection, which has caused a few problems.

As mentioned in previous minutes, there are plans afoot for a new server:
* Molotov becomes the shell server and also hosting othe...

More Downtime

Posted on 17th October 2003

Sorry for the yet more downtime. This is once gain due to ITS and the Onion being lame and changing settings/dieing respectively.
An angry mob will be formed shortly to deal with the problem on a permanent basis, just as soon as Draconas can aquire AK-47's for everybody.
