Committee Reports

President's Report

  • Today was a rollercoaster ride with realizing ACNC obligations
  • We were worried
  • Have submitted the ACNC (Australian Charities)
  • Need a handover document so future committees can keep track of what they need to do
  • And be prompted to do it
  • It is unlikely that we wll be penalised as we have been acting in good faith
  • There is the potential to incur penalties
  • Best to make sure we meet requirements

Spring Busy Bees

  • Sent a few emails about clean ups
  • Facebook event now exists for this weekend
  • First busy bee for Semester 2: Sat, Sep 5 10:00-17:00
  • All are welcome and appreciated
  • EMP with Guild has been approved

Other Things

  • Other than that...
  • Last Camp meeting: Wednesday
  • More tasks got done
  • Closer to having the event approved
  • All camp roles are assigned to people on the subcommittee
  • IF other committee are planning to come to camp there are plenty of other roles
  • Trying to get back into the clubroom more
  • Will put up a facebook event to attend the clubroom on Friday
  • Will try to run more events from next week onwards

Vice President's Report

  • Wow it's week six...it does not feel like it
  • On a more UCC-related note:
  • At the wheel meeting on Saturday 2020-08-29
  • Lots of tasks that need to be done
  • These don't require too much knowledge of UCC's systems
  • Could produce some sort of newsletter-type publication
  • Something along the lines of: here's a bunch of tech-projects at UCC
  • Big issue is: everything that goes on technically at UCC
  • Ends up being internal wheel-will-sort-it-out kind of thing
  • Need to open up a lot of these projects to our members
  • No idea how sUCCessful such a newsletter would be

Secretary's Report

  • Called ACNC about requirements
  • Started our AIS Statement (Due Aug 30)
  • Sent Report to [email protected]
  • We submitted a grant for EZONE rebranding 2020-08-30
  • Hopefully we can refresh our O-Day stall branding
  • Wants video/image to ASCII on a terminal at a stall
  • So people walking past see themselves in code and stop to have a look
  • Submitted EMP for some casual hangs Sep 11 / Sep 25

Treasurer's Report

  • Sent over financial details for ACNC 2019
  • Subcommittee meeting for CH Quiz Night tomorrow
  • We still have money
  • Have not updated anything
  • Deep in assignment land
  • Very busy...
  • As of next Monday: will be done with the Intensive Unit

Fresher Rep's Report

  • Non-mittee are showing up to UCC now that we're sort of open again
  • Nice to see people using the desktops
  • Wondering about how many desktops we could dual boot
  • Created a Discussion on Desktops: see Desktops
  • Side effect of this: have lost train of thought
  • That's my report

OCM Reports


  • I've ...been doing Camp related things?
  • Did pop into the University for an Hour
  • For an event for a different club
  • The University still exists
  • Can confirm it
  • That's about it

Machine Technical Reports

  • [TPG]: has isolated the ipv6 related problem
  • Will send an email to UniIT about it
  • [MPT]: to have a quick chat with Geoff/Paul from UniIT this week
  • Missed today as was busy with ACNC
  • Take it they were happy with the http and DNS stuff but...it didn't seem to go any further?


  • Graphics card fault on Corydoras
  • Probably need to reshuffle some of the gear we have
  • Computers sitting behind the desks that aren't being used that do have graphics cards in them that aren't being used
  • Should maybe bring our best equipment to the forefront

Discussion on Desktop Accessibility

  • [BRD]: wondering if people visiting the room want to use Windows
  • Restricted number of Windows Desktops available currently
  • May need to add stickers showing which OS is on which Desktop
  • [BRD] Action item: Put stickers on Desktops with the same operating system so new members attending
  • [BRD] Action item: Make Spec Spreadsheet of each Desktop
  • [MLG]: We can get this printed at Uni Print
  • [TPG]: We have a web service that should be doing that but it has some splice issues at the moment

UCC Branding/Accessibility Discussion Begins**

  • We want to improve branding
  • To make a budget for UniPrint items like stickers and Desktop specs
  • Aim to increase accessibility of clubroom to especially new members


  • [TPG]: I like the dual monitor set up, thinks it's very nice
  • Could use the spare monitors to also set up dual monitors on the east end also

Square Payments

  • Square phone is broken and keeps looping when rebooting
  • Current broken phone is a late 2018 Nokia 3.1 (See 2020-09-09 Minutes was in the agenda for the next meeting)
  • Will probably need to buy a new phone for Square payments
  • [MVP]: Most certainly a second hand phone that we can get that will be available
  • [MPT]: thinks we should do a bit more research before we budget for that
  • For for the moment : committee can set up square reader on their phone as they have access to the account with the adapter
  • For [Door]: If Square isn't working, ask for cash payments or help member pay through memberdb with square and ensure username is set up
  • Alternative: Members can bank transfer and email [email protected] after
