\chapter{UCC::Clubroom}
\begin{mdframed}
\null
The clubroom is usually open from about 9am until 11pm (staying later than this requires \emph{a good reason} and giving notice to UWA security). 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}
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.

The big non-tech event of the year, the 40th Anniversary dinner is an opportunity for new members to meet the old blood of UCC, the ones that are still kicking on. Taking place in the lovely South of Perth Yacht Club, this fully catered dinner will be a good celebration of 40 years of computing. Expect entry prices to be around \$60 to \$80.

This Chapter provides an overview of UCC's services (as of January 2014); how to use them, what they are for, what servers are responsible for them. The full hostname for a server is \server{server.ucc.asn.au}.
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.

SSH is a program that lets you remotely access UCC's servers. These can be used for almost anything (legal) you can imagine; programming, website hosting, file storage, IRC chatting (see Chapter \ref{Communications}), dispensing drinks, and many more things.
The easiest way to use SSH is from a Linux clubroom desktop. Simply open a "terminal" application, type "ssh ssh" and enter your password. It should look like Figure \ref{ssh.png}.
