[ProgSoc] Minutes of Progsoc meeting Thursday 3rd March

(these are just like formal minutes, except with the most boring bits removed.)

Discussion and resolutions

Remove services from trogdor and baalzebub: 
 Unnecessary since the only services are secondaries.

Restrict user access to service machines (incubus succubus orgo medusa): 
 Not technically feasible at the moment to restrict non-admin users from these machines.  For now, add motd notice and short idle limits on server machines to educate users and discourage non-essential use.

medusa stability and redundancy: 
 Look into setting up a second PC for redundant hardware
 Look into obtaining a cisco router (3 ethernet) for same job 

Machine physical arrangement in the room: 
 Membernet moved to top of the refrigerator until a proper half-height 19" rack can be obtained
 Servers into the dead space at the corner of the two desks, freeing up usable desk space for more laptop/workstation/project use

Room access: 
 Get a locking cupboard from Compsoc, so internal door can stay more open.  
 Internal door between Clubs and Societies room and Progsoc room to remain open for the time being, but outer door to be locked except when Compsoc or Progsoc exec member is present.  (This probably triples member access to the room since Compsoc types are often about.)

Power/network bays for laptops: 
 Bryn Loftus has volunteered to make and install these

Member education programme: 
- which machines do which tasks
- which machines are good for logging into
- which machines are poor for logging into
- forwarding progsoc mail elsewhere
- exec page
- call for projects

 Michael Dale has volunteered to organise a movie night
 Myles Byrne has volunteered to organise a codefest
