New quota levels!
The CCN-Tech team is pleased to announce that quota levels
for all new and renewing Full and Family membership
accounts will get even more disk space than before: 1500 k of file space quota
and 1500 k of mail quota.
This increase in quota is being slowly phased in as current Full members
renew and new Full members are added so as to not cause any disk overloads.
Work continues on new Provincial Server
Work on the new Provincial Server,
designed to provide email and web services to communities
in outlying regions of the province, continues as finishing touches
are put to the various programs and scripts running on Athena, the
newest machine in the Chebucto family.
The Provincial Server, with work still in progress on its website at
will be tested by various Community Access Program sites around
the province before it becomes fully operational later this summer.
It's designed to offer email and web space to communities across
Nova Scotia currently without such public services locally available.
Chebucto Plus keeps adding users
The graphical access Chebucto Plus
service has been proving to be a hit with CCN users. For a Sustaining membership
in the Chebucto Community Net Society of $100 per year, users currently get
unlimited hours per month and session times that extend
past a guaranteed time so long as modems are available for others to
dial in on. In addition to the graphical access, users also get 10 Megs
of file space on the Chebucto server, the choice of a custom user name
and four different ways of accessing their email.
The Chebucto Plus service is available to anyone with
a Chebucto account. You can register and get your own Chebucto account
if you do not have one.
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.
Work continues on the purging of all references to these outdated addresses
from CCN files and documents including User Profiles. Some
Chebucto users may be experiencing slower logins as their
file directories, addressbooks and web pages are checked for
the now outdated domain names when they login. The search is
a one time event though users did have to go through the process
a second time after the holidays when a log file was accidentally
deleted. Users are urged to remove any references to the old domain names
and may choose to
automate this process
if they wish.
