Services-unit are unlikely to want to expand. 8Gbps would be good to have.
Alastair now following this up.
Waiting for some odd-state accounts to be sorted out.
Neil will check the current write access to the cgi directory, and Tim will put moving the affected exam mark pages to a dedicated VM
Craig will submit a project to cover this.
"It looks like kdcregister doesn't store any credentials on disk, so this isn't an issue."
Was discussed at CEG, and an action created there to discuss it further.
Blog articles suggested:

A reminder of the need to report being off ill to line managers for reporting to HR, statutory requirement for "return to work" interviews, etc.
Reports from units

There was no objection to starting the AT basement upgrade tomorrow morning.
There was no objection to removing the remaining AT FibreChannel switch
Craig will be announcing this widely, writing a blog article, etc.
It was noted that a number of these printers are actually faulty.
US will definitely need additional help on Tuesday 5th May. Please let them know if you're available.
The exam on Tuesday 19th May takes place on level 4, so won't be affected by the start of the decant work on level 5.
Topics for discussion
(Nothing in the wiki list.)
Craig expects to be writing something about the removal of some of the Forum mono printers.
"This is all fine and dandy, but I wonder if users might find the need for the tilde form confusing/annoying? We COULD hack the suexec and Apache/userdir code to fix this, but that's very definitely Not Recommended, and would mean future updates (are there any other kinds?) would require patching too. We already rebuild suexec (reconfigured, not patched) and additional work to keep track of other changes may not be worth the effort.
"I'd be inclined to keep the ~user URL form, and have static pages and scripts in a user's secure web space, then just document it (exectable URLs would need a tilde, static pages wouldn't). Keeping things as vanilla as possible just seems like A Good Thing to me.
"Failing arguments to the contrary, I think I'll just run with tilde - but thought I'd see if CO crowd-surfing came up with any arguments against."
homepagesis ever moved to this kind of implementation then there would be corresponding changes there, which might be problematic for some.
Open area ports were discussed at CEG on Monday 23rd, where it was agreed that these should be enabled on Conf110. Craig is looking into possible ways to provide printing.
The next meeting will be on 8th April 2015 at 10:00 in IF-4.31 chaired by Alison.
