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, which was no easy task (especially when it got really hot up there). The PBX is now installed, and functioning properly. Once again -- thank you to the members who braved tough working conditions to make the project a success.

I also wanted to let everyone know that we will be starting work on a project for the St. John Vianney School in Goodyear. The school is located at 539 La Pasada Blvd (the nearest major cross-streets are Van Buren and Dysart).

This project is fairly large, and will require a fair amount of work to 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 be segmenting their network, running a few drops, and configuring at least one wireless access point. We also hope to setup a server, and possibly 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, and on the weekends. The following is our tentative schedule for the rest of this week:
Thursday, August 4: 6pm until ?
Friday, August 5: 4:30pm until ?
Saturday, August 6: 8am until ?
I will send out an e-mail each week that contains a project status update, and a tentative work schedule.

We need all of the help that we get! I urge everyone to participate. You do not have to work all of the available dates, nor do you have to stay the entire time. Also, you do not have to be an expert in any particular area of computing to help out with these projects. Projects like this one are are an excellent opportunity to learn new things, practice skills learned in class, and to help prepare for Senior Project. One of the best ways to reinforce skills that you've learned is to teach those skills to someone else.

If you are interested in participating (or would like more information), please e-mail me at mannrem@xxxxxxxxxxxx When e-mailing me, please be sure to include your Name, e-mail address, and phone number. I will try to respond to all of the e-mails within 24 hours. If you do not receive a response within that time frame, please send me another message.

With member participation and teamwork, I am sure that this project will be a major success. As always, if you have any questions/comments/concerns, please e-mail me or speak with me on campus.
