- Meeting reconvened at 18:15 (Meeting of 24/03/03 was adjourned).
- Returning officer: Michael Lamont
- Acceptance of Last AGM Minutes Accepted.
- President's Report - Christian Kent
- The meeting of 24/03/03 was adjourned due to outages, making promotion of the AGM impractical (as well as interfering with membership renewals). [nothing has again been deferred].
- Anand would hold position of CSO for one month after adjourning of AGM on 24/03/03, and resigned at midnight, 24/04/03
- The Society has not taken possession of Jubilex, it was left behind in 4/G25 when the society moved to 10.03.380A, and was then given to SECSME in trust until ProgSoc could take possession of it. Telford was able to get it working with 1 CPU, however, we could not move it to the new room as it requires a 1-phase 30A power socket, which resembles a 3-phase power outlet. Power in building 10 could be adapted to use it, but not without severe insurance implications.
- Machine update - a PowerPC appeared in the room after the move - and has been called yeenoghu. Dispater is now accepting user logins. Ftoomsh is on its last legs, and will hopefully be replaced by a new donation from Sun (via Mike Stalenberg) - Sun E3000 with 6 processors, which will be the best machine ever donated to ProgSoc. We recently got an new machine, Anubis, which running Solaris, due to its late-model Sun hardware. It is currently acting as the primary webserver. Geryon is still working, but sutekh's (Intel box) boot disk died today, but the rest of it is okay, and it should be up and running again soon.
- CompSoc is up for sale, but no reason could be found for buying it. [Clarification: This was communicated to the ProgSoc Executive via a hijacked email account of the President of CompSoc]
