Updated: 18 April 2000

New Chebucto Plus installation CD-ROM available

The Chebucto Technical Committee, with the help of Computer Science Co-op student Tracy Harnish, has developed an installation CD for setting up the Chebucto Plus graphical access service on users' computers.

The long-awaited CD will work with Windows 95 and 98, Macintosh, and Windows 3.1 and 3.11. The Chebucto Plus service is available to Sustaining members of the Chebucto Community Net. The CD is currently free to new Sustaining and Premium Neighbourhood Account members who may pick it up from the Chebucto Office, but there is a $10 charge to mail it out. Due to limited availability, this CD is only available to new Plus accounts.

Chebucto AGM News

The Annual General meeting of the Chebucto Community Net Society is set for Tuesday, April 25 2000 at the Theatre Auditorium in the new Computer Science Building on the Dalhousie Campus.

New Group Account Categories

The Chebucto Community Net is pleased to announce new account categories for both non-profit groups and for-profit small businesses. The new Neighbourhood Accounts were designed to make getting online with Chebucto easier and more streamlined. Information on Non-Profit Neighbourhood Accounts is here and information on For-Profit Neighbourhood Accounts is here.

Chebucto website update begins

The long-awaited update to the Chebucto Community Net website has started. Based on a template developed by Dalhousie University Library Science students and modified by NetCorps interns working under the supervision of Chebucto office staff, the new template attempts to make navigation on the Chebucto website easier. While designed with graphic browsers in mind, the web pages are accessible with the Lynx text browser.

New features are a standard navigation bar across the top of all pages (which you will have seen on this page) and a description of where on the Chebucto website you are, with links to the levels above you. The Chebucto website will gradually be revised to conform to the new format.
