This past week sees the ending of the Nominations for the EH Holonet Awards, and the start of the Primary Voting. Primary Voting will run from May 29th (a little bit before the EH meeting) untill June 4th. A person may only vote once per category. The top 3 sites will continue to the finals. A site must receive AT LEAST one vote to continue on to the finals.

Internet Officer Supported Software. Given the shear number of programs for use on the Internet, an inexperienced computer user can face a mighty task of selecting what software to use. The Internet Office will therefore start offering suggestions of software that frankly, the IO uses. Thereby having some ability to offer a bit of help with said software. These suggestions are not meant to say one program is better than another. It is merely to offer you a choice and someone to go to for help if you have a problem.

First among IO Supported Software is an FTP Client called FileZilla. You can download filezilla from Some instructions on using FileZilla with the Minos web hosting service are located at:

Personal Life Update: I said last time that I might be moving "real soon". Well those moving plans have fallen through. Chances are I will be in the same place for at least another 2 months. But that could change in a moments notice. Don't you love the military :)
