Computer Club Meeting Minutes for 2005/06/02
9 members present: Eric, Matt R., Melissa, Velex, Brian, Miles, Tim, Joe W., Chris

Start time: 7:14PM

1) PLAN A:
Brian is having issues with Bawls as a sponsorship, Brian is currently awaiting an email to explain the situation. Brian tried for sponsorship and they accepted, however had the incorrect date. He asked for this to be corrected and the sponsorship was removed. He went to reapply and was declined.
The other sponsors have not returned our call. Our next order of business is advertising. We still need to get the port numbers for the other room. Should we reserve the room to check all of the ports and make sure that the ports are in the script. However gamerz stuff is sending a mouse pad.
Brian needs to receive the new port numbers from Jim Cotton. Brian wishes to go out a night early to check the ports. If this happens they will need to have Jim Cotton run the port scripts before the night they check them.
There is still no word on making the boxheads site viewable by WMU students on Campus.
The will need to pick up a machine that is already configured for DHCP and firewalling from Matt if he doesn't show up before the LAN and if they cannot Brian has suggested they could use a machine in the LABs that are used for the networking classes.
Other options are Nick could come down with his machine.
Matt called Eric during the meeting and proclaimed he will be able to come down and bring the server.
Eric Proclaims the LAN party planning is going smoothly, Jim Cottons phone number has been added to Geekboys database by Tim.
The computer club will be purchasing a chest freezer for the LAN and for other events. cost: $140 it was voted by all if favor to do so.
The chest freezer will be left in the computer club and may contain Ice cream for purchase during the year.
