ALL THE TYPING AND NONE OF THE SLEEP

Still TODO:
 - Add maps
 - Add glossary
 - Write/Get people to write welcomes (or just cut them out, whatever)
 - Satisfy the wrath of people that don't like it
 - Maybe get some more pictures and less text
 - Maybe get some actual Freshers to provide input
   - We do still have Freshers right?

\chapter{Clubroom Use}
The clubroom is usually open from about 9am (after the first door group member arrives from 8am lectures) until 11pm (when UWA security kick us out). It is also sometimes open on weekends, and most days during university holidays. There is a map to the clubroom in Chapter \ref{FindClubroom}. If you want to check the clubroom is open and who is there, check out \url{http://webcam.ucc.asn.au}
\begin{mdframed}
The clubroom has a heap of desktop computers, a server room, a projects area with tool cupboard, and assorted storage areas for parts, books and components. These things are all there for members to use – the locks on everything are to keep thieves out, so please don't be put off, and just ask if you need to get into something.

We don't have cleaners, so look after the clubroom!

Of course, if you see something that needs doing such as cleaning up, feel free to do it!}

Unlike committee, obtaining membership to one of the UCC groups does not involve being elected. Membership of these groups entails a certain amount of trust, so you may not be allowed to join them straight away.
The exact entry requirements are often vague and it is generally accepted that you will nominate yourself once you feel you meet those requirements. Members join Wheel by invite only, and will be asked to attend a Wheel Meeting, where they too will be taught the Secret Wheel Song.
Do not despair if you're not made a Wheel member immediately. Sticking around and showing an interest through contribution is more important than just having the skills.

Servers are usually named after fish beginning with M. This is because they are in the Machine Room, and they run Linux. The mascot for Linux is Tux, a penguin, and he likes to eat fish. The more you know...
Remember that all services are maintained by UCC's members. If you are interested in learning more, or running a new service, ask someone!

The Heathred A. Loveday memorial games server hosts the following games on a regular basis:
\begin{itemize}
\item Minecraft -- The server is \server{minecraft}, a VM on \server{heathred}
\item TF2
\item Enemy Territory (popular at LANs)
\end{itemize}
Administrator access to \server{heathred} is fairly unrestricted; it is also available as a general use server. For example, its GPU has been used in the past for number crunching projects.
\end{uccservice}
\begin{uccservice}{Drinks and Snacks --- Dispense}{merlo, coke machine, snack machine}
UCC's most successful service is undoubtably the internet connected coke machine and not quite internet connected snack machine. These use serial communications to talk to \server{merlo}, which runs open source software written by talented members including John Hodge, Mark Tearle and David Adam.
A relay connected to \server{merlo} can be activated by door members from the snack machine to open the club's electronic door lock.

\begin{uccservice}{Clubroom Music}{robotnik}
From within the clubroom, you can navigate to \url{http://robotnik} to play music over the speakers. Beware, as repeated abuse may lead to activation of the dreaded "loldongs" mode.
\end{uccservice}
\begin{uccservice}{Email}{mooneye}
UCC proudly runs its own mail server. You have an email account <[email protected]>. The address <[email protected]> will also work.
Upon creating your account you can choose an address to foward all emails to. You can change this at any time by editing the ".forward" file in your home directory.
Alternately, you can use one of several methods to check your UCC email directly.
\begin{enumerate}
\item alpine --- Connect via SSH and run "alpine". The interface is basic. Press the Control key a lot.
\item webmail --- Several options will be presented to you at \url{http://webmail.ucc.asn.au}
\item mail client (eg: Thunderbird) --- The server name is \server{secure.ucc.asn.au}. Use port 993 and IMAP. With your UCC username and password.
\end{enumerate}
\end{uccservice}
\begin{uccservice}{Web Hosting}{mantis, mussel}
Members can publish their own sites! SSH to a server and edit the files in the directory "public-html". The website will appear at \url{http://username.ucc.asn.au}.

\begin{uccservice}{Wiki Hosting}{mooneye}
UCC uses a Wiki called "MoinMoin" to store documentation on servers, events, and miscellaneous things. It is visible at \url{http://wiki.ucc.asn.au}.
\end{uccservice}
\begin{uccservice}{User Logins}{mussel, mylah}
We use something called LDAP for authentication and linux accounts. SAMBA is involved for windows logins. Only one member really knows how this works, so I will move swiftly on.
\end{uccservice}
\begin{uccservice}{File Storage}{mylah, enron/stearns, nortel/onetel, motsugo}
With your account comes not one, but \emph{two} directories for your files.
The one most commonly seen is accessable on clubroom machines. It will be named "/home/ucc/username" on clubroom linux machines. On servers however, there is a different "/home" directory; to get to your clubroom home directory you must access "/away/ucc/username".
Home directories on the servers are considered slightly more secure than your "away" directory.
If you are using Linux, you can use the program "sshfs" to mount your home or away directories remotely. This is the most convenient method for uploading, downloading or editing files. Under windows, the programs "WinSCP" or "Filezilla" might not suck.
%For interest: Not that interesting
%\server{enron} and \server{stearns} are our slowly dying SAN which stores "away". \server{mylah} mounts the SAN directly and exports the filesystem over NFS.
%\server{motsugo}'s disks contain "home" which is exported only to servers via NFS.
%The NetApp \server{nortel} and \server{onetel} store Virtual Machine (VM) images, and "/services" --- the directory that contains UCC's website, amongst other things.
\end{uccservice}
\begin{uccservice}{Network Servers}{murasoi, mooneye}
Murasoi is a wheel-only server which serves as a router for all of UCC's networks and runs the infamous "ucc-fw" firewall. Murasoi also acts as the DHCP server.
For some reason, DNS is not on murasoi, but on mooneye. The magic that makes \url{http://username.ucc.asn.au} point to your website happens on mooneye.
\end{uccservice}
\begin{uccservice}{Virtual Machine Hosting}{medico, motsugo, heathred, mylah}
Members who are particularly nice to wheel group can get their own VM hosted at UCC. \server{medico} runs the amazing ProxMox interface and is used for all new VMs. The typical way to use this interface is from a web browser on \server{maaxen}, a VM running on \server{medico}...
\server{heathred} is used for VMs when wheel complains that they aren't important enough to justify using all of \server{medico}'s CPU *cough* minecraft *cough*.
\end{uccservice}
\begin{uccservice}{Windows Server}{maaxen}
\server{maaxen} is our token Windows server. It can be accessed through RDP, but beware, as it only supports two simultaneous sessions. \server{maaxen} boasts a range of useful programs including Notepad and Matlab.
\end{uccservice}
\begin{uccservice}{IRC}{mussel, mantis}
IRC is discussed in Chapters \ref{SetupAccount} and \ref{Communications}.
Our two IRC servers are bridged with CASSA and ComSSA, computer science associations at other Universities.

\begin{uccservice}{General Use}{motsugo}
SSH access is available to several servers, but \server{motsugo} is the best choice for general use. It is mostly used for personal software projects, and to run members' screen sessions so they can be \emph{constantly} connected to IRC.
