Terms of Service
This week, Jake drew up the initial Terms of Service. James passed them around and the exec laughed at every point before deciding that they were very good, and that only a few modifications were needed. These were:
- Users are responsible for their account and all files owned by their username. In the case of a password being lost, the exec should be notified ASAP.
- If anyone is found to be using excessive bandwidth (or CPU time), we will levvy charges.
- The distributed warez policy: we’ll kill and then mail the person telling them their warez has been killed.
- The non-distributed warez policy: we’ll mail the person, warn them, and then kill the warez.
We’ve had a mail asking if we would willingly be an SMTP relay server. We see no problems with this, apart from the obvious abuse aspect. Tom Ward to set up an ‘abuse’ alias, and check orbs for us being on a blacklist. Tom to mail Matt Bergin and sort this out.
Quotas aren’t working. Tom to sort.
James ot put the minnits page back up at some point, along with the Newsletters. H to write minnits and NLs in CPS from now on. And we’re all to thik of a new anacronym for ‘CNT’, because it sounds rude.
Despite saying it was impossible to do, and not even Larry Wall could manage to fix his Perl script, James added the signup cuttofs in approximately ten minutes.
Tom has tried to get in contact with the other student’s society about the Friday night of s5, but failed miserable, and thus we shall be starting on Saturday morning at 10:00am.
Tom to book for the end of week seven. This he has done; we tried for LIB1, but couldn’t get it; we’ve got the choice of B213/214 (again), or LIB2.
Jake went to see John Finnis. He wasn’t in. Jake went to see John Finnis again, half an hour later. He still wasn’t in. Neither was Anne Jarvis, and so we haven’t been able to make our excuses yet. Jake to keep trying.
Tom hasn’t done anything becuase we’ve not got numbers. James to put up signups.
