Fund Raising Canvass Continues!
Chebucto volunteers continued to call CCN users in Day 2 of
the CCN fund raising canvass. "We're getting a lot of
positive responses to CCN from our users", said organizer
Richard Rudnicki, "and one in three are donating."
Johnathan Thibodeau, a Grade XI student and member of CCN Youth added,
"We've even had a person call us back after we had gotten no answer
from his line. He used Caller ID to get our number and made a donation!"
The canvass will run
Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons for the next two weeks and has
a goal of raising $1500 from Chebucto users to help offset the costs
of upgrading aging modems and other system needs. It has raised
$395 to date.

CCN's First Monthly Social A Success!
About Thirty Chebucto Community Net users packed into Bob and Lori's Food Emporium
for the first CCN monthly social gathering. Regular CCN Users, volunteers and
members of the CCN Board mingled and traded tips and info in the two hour
gathering. The age of attending users ranged from eight months to seventy years.
Judged a success by organizers, the Social enabled members of the Chebucto community
to put faces to oft-read names from email and Usenet and to hear from other people on CCN
how things were going. Your humble correspondent has to report the coffee was quite good
too and recommends that attendees of future Socials held there bring their appetites along
A date for the next Social has not yet been set. Watch here for more as it comes in.
Old CCN Domain Names Expire!
The old CCN domain names
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
chebucto.ns.ca 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Over the next couple of weeks all references to these outdated addresses will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.
