Minutes of last AGM: Nora first, James seconds. Accepted

Brian - Vice-President's report:

  • Replaced servers
  • New network
  • No longer doing wireless - we've announced it to them, but they keep throwing more people about it (Brian to prod ITD about it again)

Liz - Treasurer's report:

  • We're doing okay
  • We've paid for everything, got a few grants
  • Drinks help to keep things afloat
  • Wireless brought in a fair amount, but not enough to justify the hours
  • The bank account has around $2000, a $500 increase

James (with Rob and Chris) - CSO's report:

  • New servers: Thomas donated two, Chris donated two, John Elliot one, Jedd two
  • Machines improving
  • "Better stuff": Everything should soon be easier to maintain
  • Migrated around 90 accounts
  • Old web content has been saved.
  • Mailing list archives are in
  • Email bounces are still a problem
  • Gmail has particular problems with ProgSoc mail
  • New archives are separate from the old ones; everything's in a different location, but it's still there.
  • Medusa died, incubus and succubus need to be rethought; get rid of them?

Adjourned for pizza. Returned.


Vice President:



  • Liz Webb (2nd'd) - By default


First Year Rep:

Alumni Rep:

General business

TFM: Wzdd wants to update it for the latest stuff. He is taking volunteers... Should it still be in TeX, or switch to a Wiki or something?

Debate topics: Two students, two alumni, two industry. What topic? Open source vs Microsoft? "Anything that will start an argument" Functional programming is useless: functional arguments vs *.

Meeting closed.
