ProgClub Christmas Party 2016

Wow. What a turn out. Twelve people! That's got to be a record.

Thanks to everyone who came. Photos are in.

In attendance (in order of arrival): Friggles, Bozic, Dubz, Jedd, Key, Georgia, Ben, Chris, Hailey, CK, Dedney, and John! (OK, not strictly in order of arrival.)

Apologies from Tina who couldn't make it due to illness.

Merry Christmas everyone!

p.s. Jams are usually made from pulp and juice of one fruit, whereas marmalade generally refers to a fruit preserve made from the juice and peel of citrus fruits.


Christmas party date announced

The ProgClub Christmas Drinks will be on at the Royal Exhibition Hotel from 5:30pm on Wednesday, December 7. Look forward to seeing you there!


The Great Migration

So the Migration 2016 project, in which the entire ProgClub architecture is being re-imagined and re-provisioned on new equipment, is in full swing. We will be moving the network from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS servers from Rackspace to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS servers on Digital Ocean. Expect some small amount of network services interruption over the coming weeks as we get the migration done... apologies for any inconvenience caused!
