April Meeting Report

The April meeting had nine members and five officers in attendance [fourteen in total.].  It was an open forum discussion.  One of the many topics was how Netscape and other browsers are
broken.  Many other topics were also discussed.



 

Membership Report

by Luis Basto
 
We would like to thank Multi-Media Arts on renewing their membership.  Their continuing corporate sponsorship is appreciated.

Multi Media Arts develops educational materials that address a range of ability levels and subject areas and are used for in-service training, classroom teaching, and independent study. MMA also provides consulting services for instructional program design, development, and implementation.

A preliminary check shows we have about forty active members in CACTUS.  We are in the process of adding these users to our alternate server, linux.cactus.org.  Since the Sparc 10 (cactus.org) was broken into last month, we are still hashing out plans on rebuilding a Solaris
based machine.

Note from Editiod:
Our very At-Large Lindsey Haisley has actually filled out forms for us to send to the InterNic, or whoever is in charge today.  Someday, we may own our very own domain.

CACTUS Meeting Location: Applied Research Labs

CACTUS meets on the third Thursday of each month at the Applied Research Labs (ARL) in the JJ Jake Pickle Research Campus (JJ PRC). We'll meet in the main auditorium located directly behind the guard's desk and main lobby.

Please do not show up earlier than 6:20 pm on the specified day. Enter through the main entrance at 10000 Burnet Road for ARL:UT. Tell the guard that you are here for the CACTUS meeting. You will be required to sign a log book, but not required to wear a badge. The guards will direct you to the auditorium entrance. Limited parking in the front of the building is available, but more extensive parking is available in the large parking lot just north of the ARL building. After 6:30 pm, all entrances to JJ PRC, except for the Burnet Road entrance, are closed and locked. You can still enter the parking lot in front of the ARL building. No parking tags are necessary after 6:00 pm. See map for further details.

Online maps are available at:

As always, please leave the facility as you saw it when you arrived. So let's clean up all pizza and soda items before we leave. Thanks and hope to see all of you there.
