Summer is reaching its close- it’s time to break up with the sun, and
rebound with Redbrick, DCU’s favourite networking society! I’d like to
give our new members a warm welcome, and our returning members a grudging

Week 22 - New Committee | Birthday

Hi all:

We’ve had a busy week with a talk, quiz and the AGM. Last week was the AGM or the shuffling of Committee, when we say good bye to some old faces and hello to some new ones. As those of you who attended the AGM know, I was appointed as Redbrick’s new and shiny secretary, I look forward to a year writing badly worded but informing announces for my adoring public.
Now down to business…

Week 21: Being an Embedded Software Engineer | AGM | Table Quiz!

Hi all,

O how I have missed thee; the glint of your sharp reading eyes, the
disappointed sigh as you see my jokes, the swear words you mutter as you
delete my eagerly-written message. You may have noticed that there was no
announce last week; as you know, Redbrick aren’t very good with any of
that computer business, and our mailing list interface was down. But alas,
my love, it works now, and just in time for one of the most exciting weeks
of the year! Here’s what’s on this week:

  • Being: An Embedded Software Engineer - Wednesday 30/03 - C166 - 3pm
  • Redbrick AGM - Thursday 31/03 - QG21 - 5.30pm
  • Annual Table Quiz - Thursday 31/03 - Nubar - 7pm

Downtime for Maintenance and Upgrades - Saturday 19/03/16

Evenin’ All,

Just a quick word to let you know that we’ll be doing some upgrade works
(physical and application) on servers this weekend. We’ll, probably, be
starting at 11a.m. on Saturday give or take a few minutes.

All servers will be affected by these updates and we’ll be stopping
services and doing cascading updates.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Week 19: Bash Scripting

Hey all,

The leprechauns are frolicking in the meadows, and the warm Spring sun is
bothering people in other countries. That means that this week is the
perfect week for more Redbrick networking wizardry! Helpdesk are going to
be dishing out the deets on console scripting in Linux, so make sure you
appear if you want to learn how to make your harddrive eject automatically
every sixteen minutes while your speakers beep in Morse code.
