NetCom Club Members:
Hello members! I would like to thank everyone that participated in the Sky
Engineering project. It was a tough project, but everyone did an
outstanding job. We had to work in a ceiling full of loose insulation,

complete. We need to perform a complete computer and network inventory of
the campus. We will also be creating a network diagram. We are going to
install operating systems and other software on about 60 computers. We will

implement Active Directory for user authentication.
Due to the large volume of work required (and to get as many people involved
as possible) we will be working on this project during the day, at night,

Thursday, August 4: 6pm until ?
Friday, August 5: 4:30pm until ?
Saturday, August 6: 8am until ?

a major success. As always, if you have any questions/comments/concerns,
please e-mail me or speak with me on campus.
