SIG Build now meeting twice a week!

Due to popular request, SIG Build is adding an additional meeting time each week.SIG Build will now meet on both Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30 at SEL 2264.

This change will give more project time to those who need/want it, and also give members a chance to miss one or the other day to participate in another group like SIG Web or Linux Users Group.

If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.

Robert B.

President, SIG Build

First ACM General Meeting

The first ACM general meeting of the year is this Thursday, 9/2/2010, in SEO 1000 at 6:00pm. New and potential members are encouraged to come and find out more about the ACM, its special interest groups, the services we offer, and the events we sponsor. Expect presentations from the individual S.I.G. leaders, UIC Linux Users Group, and the current ACM administration. Food will also be provided courtesy of the ACM and University of Illinois. Meeting are held bi-weekly, on Thursdays, and should return to their normal time of 5:30. The meeting location will remain the same unless otherwise noted on this website or on the acm general mailing list. General event information can be found on the acm calendar page, which is linked to on the right side of this page.

ACM Website Now Online

The main acm server had to be rebuilt due to technical issues, and the main acm website and shell access have been restored. Several links and services are not yet working and should be, hopefully, within a week. The main acm server has also been moved to a new machine and currently members should refrain from using the main server as storage due to limited disk space. Steps have already been taken to add additional storage to the new machine and should also be ready within a weeks time. Further status updates will be posted here on our website and to the acm mailing list (acm@uic.edu).
