Is there a reason we can't start using a hosted solution for things like this?
I'd be really interested as to peoples ideas like "Google Apps for your domain".
With something like this we can offload a lot of the day-to-day
drugery of email/calendars/list management, while still maintaining
We can free up club resources (eg. machine time) for other club
projects, we can see our uptime increase for these services and it
will mean if we have issues in the machine room we can still have some
form of communication.
I understand the reasoning behind the idea of us wanting to
run/manage/host all of these in house, but there has to come a point
where the knowledge we give students is out-weighed by ease-of-use.
Also, while I'm putting ideas that will probably get shot down out
there, anyone against the idea of trying to migrate the club website
to a fully-fledged CMS. Maybe Joomla? While moin-moin will be
suggested, I'm against it solely because of the idea of a flat-file
