Internet Office News

The main issue the IO dealt with this week were message boards. Please be advised that the procedure for requesting a new message board is to e-mail the Internet Officer with your name, MB username, ID line, and purpose of the message board. For boards other than Squadrons, please include a brief description to be displayed under the board name.

There has been talk of transporting the EH message boards to use the BHG MB code base. While I'm not a big fan of this idea, I will look into it. Look for any updates on this situation in future reports.

With the launch of the new EH Radio station, the IO will be looking into options available to us, including a possible "question-and-answer" show.

IOAs CyberGuy and Jam3z are currently working on the new Shadow Academy site for HM Mage.

Also, some very important news about MinosNIC from IOA Turtle:

"MinosNIC now supports just over 140 Emperor's Hammer hosting accounts. Thanks to everyone for using MinosNIC and making it a successful service.

As some of you know, I will be leaving on 6 January for active duty with the U.S. Army. As such, I will not be available to maintain the server or make changes. In preparation for my absence, I've made numerous hardware upgrades to the server, including the installation of additional hard drives, redundant cooling, new motherboard/memory/processor, and an UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply).

Corey Kallanberg, one of my RaptorNet system administrators located here in town, will be monitoring everything in the NOC and repairing any problems that my show up. Ari will be handling account approvals, trouble tickets, and questions from EH members about the service. He will also have some administrative (root) level access on the server to enable him to make certain changes.

I will be returning in late August of 2003."
