Reflections Projections Upcoming Meetings

Keep in mind the following dates if you are going to or thinking of going to Reflections Projections with us!

Monday 24th at 5pm in the CS Lounge (SEL 2260), we are having a DRIVERS MEETING. If you are able to drive, or it is a possibility you can drive, you MUST ATTEND. If for some reason you cannot, please contact Ashley and give her a heads up. We will be covering important information that you all need to hear.

Secondly, Thursday 27th at 5pm in the CS Lounge we are having a FULL meeting related to Reflections. If you are a driver or are attending, you MUST show up to this as well. Here we will be discussing important things that EVERYONE needs to know.

Lastly, we will be covering initial driving assignments, initial room assignments, and everything else that is along those lines. We have to cancel our extra rooms next Friday, so you have exactly ONE WEEK to figure that out.

If you have specific cars you want to be with and specific people who will be in the same room, you need to email ME with this information ASAP (I would prefer by tomorrow so I can work through all of this with Ashley over the weekend). Please have your driver email me along with the people in that car CC’ed so everyone can confirm a car assignment. Likewise, if you want to share a specific room with anyone else, I need the same thing done. If you don’t have 4 people but 2 or 3 and don’t care who else is with you, please let me know that in your email as well. Otherwise assignments will be randomly assigned as I see fit and you have to deal with it. Also, we will not be mixing guys and girls into rooms together unless it is specifically requested with a valid reason, this is for privacy concerns and I WILL NOT override that unless you all let me know.

Oh and we NEED DRIVERS. We cannot and will not compensate you if you do not take a full compliment with you. You cannot grab 1 person then drive down and expect us to give you the money for it. So if you haven’t informed Ashley how many your car can hold including yourself, I would do so now.

See you there!

ACM General Meeting

Hi all, our next general meeting is this Thursday 9/13 at 5:30pm in SEO 1000.

We are covering SIGs, Reflections|Projections, Flourish, among a few other things.

SIG Leaders are asked to prepare something to talk about their SIGs for a few minutes (no more than 5 minutes).

If you are interested in STARTING a SIG, reviving an old one, or trying to take over one, please prepare something and we will go from there.

Any questions just ask Tom or any of the other officers.

Mid-September LAN Party

Alright, sorry for the not so far in advance notice, but LAN Party, this Saturday, starting at Noon. Come one, come all! So, come on down and play some games! I would like to see some play of The Ship, but I expect there to be some Artemis play as well as some other co-op games. Great event for new people to show up and socialize with others.

To pay for food costs, it is $10 entry fee. To get a 50% discount on said entry fee, sign up at acmlanparty.com beforehand.

I would just like to remind everyone that the user list has been CLEARED. Please make sure you check the attendees to see if you are registered, if your name isn’t on the list when we print it out, you are S.O.L.

Also, it would be safe to pick a seat. While seating hasn’t been enforced very strongly recently, if we get a large turnout and end up having to actually enforce seating, you will at least get where you wanted.

Also, setting up for LAN party is going to take place BEFORE movie night this week. So please be in ACM at 4:45ish to help us set up. It won’t take long, it is mostly just moving tables and chairs and setting up wires (sweeping sometimes is necessary)

Network Changes

Due to some network changes, the MAC address whitelist has been cleared out. This means that some people that had access to the ACM network no longer do. We are working on getting valid entries re-added to the new whitelist, but it is possible your machines entry will be missed or not added due to the reason listed below. 

As part of a new policy only ACM members will get access to the ACM network, as machine registration is now directly linked to your ACM account. Guests will retain the ability to gain access temporarily for events or other special purposes. Registration is done in person at the ACM office.

For some good news, the ACM now has a wireless network for members use. Members with registered devices will be able to access the network using their ACM account name and password. Platform specific instructions are located at acm.cs.uic.edu/wireless.

ACM VP
