 +== Business ==
 +
 +Kevin: move is proceeding. ​ waiting for approval to move power in second floor. ​ Everything is mostly ready. ​ The 1-foot move on the wall is no longer going to happen.
 +
 +Klark: machine order is mostly ready to submit. ​ Ordering 156.  $60 dollars to bump to 4 Gb.  The plan is to replace every machine in the TA office and the labs except the corner lab in the basement. ​ Two new labs on first floor, 1149, CS 100, pizza, windows in 1060, and new lab.
 +
 +== General Discussion ==
 +
 +=== Windows for 124 ===
 +Paul still wants to use Windows for winter semester. ​ He is expecting 200 students, and he would prefer to use the first floor facilities. ​ He needs a minimum of 75 seats. ​ He would prefer first facilities by the graphics lab.
 +
 +''​No shortage of windows boxes. ​ Paul can safely make the transition. ​ Location is yet to be determined. ​ Make list of classes that use windows. ​ Need to get idea of just how many windows machines we need.  Preference is to load windows machines wherever we need windows students."​
 +
 +=== Wiki Backups ===
 +
 +We need a more reliable solution.  ​
 +
 +''​Issue is related to the SAN.  We are waiting for Phil's SAN to come online. ​ Then we can change the backup situation. ​ Grabbing the image is problematic. ​ Be sure backup is on the next agenda''​
 +
 +=== Media/​Graphics Lab Setup ===
 +
 +So we've had the hardware sitting in 1110 TMCB for 1106 TMCB (the room directly south) for a while now.  I've been waiting for the software to come through before installing the first 1/2 of the lab.  I think it's probably time to just install the first 1/2 of the lab and put the software in later.
 +
 +Here's what I am thinking... ​
 +  ​
 +* I've attached a [[Image:​storytelling.pdf]] which uses the surplus 3x4 and 3x8 wood tables on the 3rd floor.  ​
 +* There'​s 9 complete workstations. ​ 3 monitors per workstation. ​ Big monitor goes in the middle, other two on either side.  ​
 +* We can use the standard windows lab image this semester.  ​
 +* After all the software gets here, we will have to build a new image and put that out for Winter semester. ​   ​
 +* We may get some Evans & Sutherland planetarium full dome projection system software in time to put that in the image. ​ But that might have to wait until Winter too.  ​
 +
 +The hardware is there so it can be set up as soon as we're ready. ​  ​Sooner the better. ​
 +
 +What do you all think?
 +
 +'''​More from Michael''':​ ''​We may have fewer chairs in the end.  We've got 2 per workstation now which may end up being too many, but that's a minor detail we can work out.''​
 +
 +=== Web proxy reliability ===
 +The web proxy seems to reach a bad state that affects the speed of our connection. ​ Do we need to look into using a different proxy? ​ Daniel reported dramatic slowdown again this week Monday that was caused by the Proxy.
 +
 +''​Moved away Squid and we are new using TinyProxy. ​ In theory, we are hoping that TinyProxy runs much nicer. ​ Pop from the agenda. ​ Finished now.''​
