Committee Reports


Active in AGM organization.


Investigating newsletter. Submitted report on membership reactions to planned 56K upgrade. The majority of text-user respondents and the overwhelming majority of Chebucto Plus users appear to be in support of the upgrade.


No report available. We have $14,427 income to date this year.


CCN has acquired two new servers, one of which is working. The other appears to be faulty, but it is not known what components are not functional.

The Plus homepage is to be moved to one of the new servers, it is currently experiencing difficulties.

UPS automated shutdown issue is un-resolved.

Chebucto Plus authentication has been experiencing problems due to an unexplained software failure during the night.

Virus checking: Chebucto is currently filtering for some e-mail viruses which have been seen to cause heavy system load for the mail server. Additionally, individual Chebucto users who appear to have virus infections are contacted by the Policy committee. Subsequent action is referred to the Tech committee.

The tech monitoring system appears to be insufficient and have a high enough false-positive message rate to make detection of serious problems difficult.

It was suggested that the Technical committee be expanded to better deal with these issues.

It was suggested that the office voice-mail system be upgraded.

Other Business

There will be a meeting on Friday to discuss relations between the CCN and the Halifax Regional CAP Association.
