Dear Redbrick Crew,
We’re already up to week 8 which means we’re two thirds of the way through semester 1. To energise you for the final third, Redbrick has got some hopping things going on:
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
While watching DCU be torn apart one building at a time is entertaining,
we have some even more exciting things going on in Redbrick in the coming
EGM - Wednesday 12/10 - 3pm
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…
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:
Annual Table Quiz - Thursday 31/03 - Nubar - 7pm
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.

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.
