It's Working!

         Hard working Chebucto volunteers and generous CCN users have helped raise over $2300 in the second weekend of the CCN phone Canvass. Even members of the Chebucto Board joined in the action with both Membership Chair Marni Tuttle and Board Chair Peter Morgan working phones. As well, Board members personally donated over $1000 to the cause.

         "A lot of people really like the service and find the email very useful", said Sharon Molloy, a first time Canvass volunteer.

         The canvass will run next Friday evening and Saturday afternoon to help raise funds to help offset the costs of upgrading aging modems and other system needs. Volunteers are still very much needed to help man phones and stuff envelopes. Free munchies and prizes are available. Please come on down and help out!

Coming Soon: CCN Gift Certificates!

         For the first time you can soon give the gift of a Chebucto Community Net account with an included Introductory User's Guide. On sale December 4, the CCN Gift Certificates will sell for $25 and also give the new user a year's voting membership in the Chebucto Community Net Society.

         Give the gift that lasts: email, access to the World Wide Web and over 16,000 Usenet newsgroups and the friendly volunteer support that is unmatched by any other locally available provider. Contact the CCN Office at (902) 494-2449 after December 4.

Old CCN Domain Names Expire!

         The old CCN domain names ccn·cs·dal·ca and cfn·cs·dal·ca are being officially retired at the request of our upstream service provider, the Network Operations Centre at Dalhousie University. All links and bookmarks to pages and addresses on CCN using these names will soon no longer work. Changing these links and addresses to now will ensure trouble-free continuing access to them.

         Over the next couple of weeks all references to these outdated addresses will be purged from CCN files and documents including User Profiles.

CCN Needs Your Help!

         We're a volunteer-run net which means we need people to volunteer to keep it going. Got a skill that is not being used to its best advantage out in the real world? Just want to help pitch in? Check here for more information on what you can do to help.
