h4. Exec Attendance at Gaming

After a brief discussion/clarification about who is a "trusted member" for the purposes of knowing the gaming password and being left to run the session, it is decided that exec, ex-exec and Euan (zx64) are "trusted".

It is noted that when gaming is finished, any trusted members must make sure every machine is checked to be in working order. The password to the account will also be changed to make sure only the trusted members now know the password.

Only a week and a half to go until the first LAN Party of the year, which means signups to members open tomorrow evening! Currently we only have allocated space for 38 people, but there is a chance this could rise to nearer 55 depending on power, and demand for signups. So, how quickly will 38 signups for the first LAN of term go...? Answer:...

Welcome social!

Posted on 3rd October 2005

Hello and welcome to Compsoc!

For everyone who's joined the society (and even those who haven't yet) there's a welcome social on Wednesday at 7.30 in Meeting Room 3, Union North.

The social should give you an opportunity to get to meet all the regular members and to know some of the cool things we've got planned in the upcoming year.

If you've got any questions, drop the exec an email or hop into IRC (irc.uwcs.co.uk, #compsoc).
