Society Books: WUGLUG and CompSoc have the opportunity to request sample review books from O'Reily, in return we have to write a small review. You can request that we ask for a book by emailing the WUGLUG list.

Network Cable: Can be obtained by emailing the exec, cost 0.40 + 20p per metre, e.g. 0.40 + (5 x 0.2) = £1.40 (5 metres), 0.40 + (10 * 0.20) = £2.40 (10 metres) etc.

Disk Space: Why not upgrade your CompSoc account disk quota? £2.50 for 500Mb, email the tech team to upgrade your account.
