The Linux User Group had organised a free guest lecture by Dave Jones, a key developer of the Linux kernel, on Wednesday 26th November. Unfortunately it has had to be postponed due to forces beyond our (and his) control. It will be re-arranged for some future time, and announced on the LUG website.

h4. Joint Paintball Game With Paintball Society

The Warwick Paintball society is organising its second game of the term for the weekend at the end of week 9, the weekend after the LAN and we are hoping to make it a joint event between us and paintball.

What this means is that members of compsoc can sign up for this event without joining paintball soc, because we are students we can get cheaper deals than if you booked separately.

h4. LAN

A LAN was held. There were problems with the music server, related to the CGIs hogging CPU causing the music to skip. As noted before, the next LAN will be held in B213/4 which is a bit smaller than the LIB rooms. We also have B219 for power leeching and if people want to sleep.
Penalising people for not turning up: at the last L...
