Calendar appears to be a little in the future

Oddly enough, looking at the calendar to the right as I write this, it shows that today is the 13th of February. I appear to have a time travelling calendar, as the system time shows correctly and the time settings for the site match the system time. It’s a mystery for another day though, as I have no desire to pour over the calendar module to see if it is set to GMT by default.

Next Meeting

First Public Post! It looks like we will be having a meeting next Thursday, February 15, 2007, at 19:00, location to be determined. We no longer have access to the boardroom, so I am working on an alternative. The fallback location will be Tim Horton’s on Carling Avenue, next to the Lone Star.

Time for a Facelift

I guess everybody has noticed the new site by now. See how clean and shiny and new (and empty) it is? After several attempts to resurrect the old site, I decided to forge ahead with a Drupal based site. Setup is easier in version 5 than it was in version 4, and the features are a little more along the lines of what I wanted in a semi-technical site. At this point, the sky is the limit.
