Weekly Meeting Minutes, September 10th, 2015

Head Count: 26 Minutes by cpg

First Meeting of the 2015-2016 Academic Year!

  • A welcome to our new members and a welcome back to our old ones!


  • We do not currently have a door bot, so the most reliable way to tell whether the room is occupied is with the $office command. If your computer’s MAC address is registered with fish (one of our bots) and you are in the room, members on IRC will see your nickname following the $office command.
  • Type $office -r [Your MAC Address] into #geekboy and fish will register your computer.

Office Hours

  • Officers of Computer Club are required to hold office hours in order to keep the room open for members that need help, or just want a place to hang out.
  • Office hours can be found on our office hours calendar or our events page. Run $office in #geekboy if you would like to know what officers are in the room at any time.

Communities and Schools

  • Last year, we sent some volunteers to the Main Street Magnet School for a robotics workshop for students.
  • Contact sphinx, or send an email to emilydemorest@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering this year.

Fall 2015 Activities


  • PLAN is our semiannual LAN party that takes place at the Parkview campus (College of Engineering and Applied Science).
  • Fall PLAN 2015 will take place from November 7th through the 8th.
  • Talk to Hardison, message him on IRC, or join the #plan channel for more information. If you would like to help out, we are always looking for volunteers.


  • Capture the Flag events are cyber-security competitions that colleges or even high schools can participate in. The challenges involved range from software reverse-engineering puzzles to general trivia questions. People of every experience level are encouraged to join in, since there is always knowledge to absorb.
  • The first CTF we will be participating in is the CSAW CTF. Join us between September 18th and 20th in the Computer Club room.

Bronco Bash

  • If you would like to help us with Bronco Bash, meet us in the Computer Club office at 1 PM on Friday, September 11th. We will have table 216.
