Computer Club Minutes for 01/20/2005
Members present: Ed, Tim, Joe, Eric, Chris, Joe W, Adam

1) The new yakko server
The server is serving. Joe commends us for a fantastic job. We migrated in 3 days and we're back to 90%. We still need to fix mail. It was working, but now it's stopped. We can send mail and transmit/receive within the Univ.
Joe suggests that we have POed the OIT department and must talk to them.

Joe will talk to OIT tomorrow, if it is not found to be a configuration problem.

Thanks to Tim, Chris, Joe, Isaac, Matt and Chad for their help with the changeover.

2) Microwave
Some suggested throwing it away, but others want to put things in it that should not be put into a microwave and fire it up to see what happens.

3) Presentations
Ideas are a basic unix presentation, Mono, Beagle, Linux maintenance. Eric will do the Linux Maintenance with Package Manager presentation next week.

Various ideas for more presentations are discussed. Joe offered to do a presentation on Mono. Penguicon was discussed. Joe agreed to create a flyer tomorrow.

ASP.NET was also a suggested presentation.

4) New firewall
Brain is dying slowly. We need to get that poor thing upgraded. We have a box that we can use.

5) New machine
We could use the old one as a backup yakko or offload the mail and web services onto it.

6) Treasurer's report
Ed was scolded for not going to the bank. Ed says we have $1300 in the bank and $300 to go to deposit. We still need to pay off our telephone bill from when we had a telephone.

Tim and Chris suggested that we get a VOIP phone. Joe agrees.

7) WIDR was discussed
The WIDR changeover went very well, thanks to Isaac.

8) Adjourned at 6:58 PM. Off to the Roadhouse...
