Making the (Pizza) Dough | T1W8 NewsletterMon 21 Nov
We are investigating some newly discovered servers and going on a pub crawl (not at the same time, I promise)
We know how much the society loves Pizza, so we're making some on Saturday! We also have an online talk from our sponsor Accenture and a DCS careers event: both on Wednesday. For any 2nd years that are finding Algorithms quite a pain, we'll be doing a revision session on Saturday!
Our server room raid last week was ... interesting. Two of the (unused) servers did not come of the rack easily and we had to get off with the rails attached! We did at least get two old servers running, though one never booted )':.
