<section title="Machine accounts">
<p>
The main benifit of becoming a CSC member is to get access to our various
machines. We offer a large range of hardware, including Alpha, MIPS,
UltraSPARC, i386, and x86_64. Our primary development machine, taurine, is
a dual AMD Operaton (4 cores in total) with 8 GiB of RAM. Most of our
machines are connected via Gigabit ethernet. We offer 2 GiB of disk quota
that is accessible across all of our machines. Our wiki contains a <a

list</a>.

<section title="Email">
<p>
Members also receive a username@csclub.uwaterloo.ca email address.
Mailboxes are considered as part of your disk quota, so your mailbox may
grow up to the amount of disk quota you have. Attachments of any file size
or type may be sent. Our mailserver runs a POP3, IMAP, and SMTP server with
SSL/TLS enabled. You can also access your mail via a <a
href="https://mail.csclub.uwaterloo.ca">secure web interface</a>.
</p>
</section>
<section title="Webspace">
<p>
Many of members take advantage of our web hosting service. Our web server
runs on Apache, and has PHP, Python, and Perl modules installed. We also
have MySQL and PostgreSQL databases available upon request.
</p><p>
If you are already a member, you can enable your webspace as follows:
<ol>
<li>
Log in to one of the CSC machines (e.g. csclub.uwaterloo.ca)
using an <a href="http://www.openssh.com/">SSH</a> client (e.g. <a
href="http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/">PuTTY</a> on
Windows or <a href="http://www.openssh.com/">OpenSSH</a> on *nix).
</li><li>
Create a directory called <code>www</code> in your home directory by
typing <code>mkdir ~/www</code>.
</li><li>
Put the files you want on your web page in your new <code>www</code>
directory. <code>index.html/php/py</code> will be loaded by default.
You can upload files using an scp client (e.g. <a
href="http://winscp.net/">WinSCP</a> on Windows or <a
href="http://www.openssh.com/">OpenSSH</a> on *nix).
</li>
<li>
Visit your snazzy new webpage at
<code>http://csclub.uwaterloo.ca/~username/</code>, where
<code>username</code> should be replaced by your username.</li>
</ol>
</p><p>
If you're still having trouble getting your page up, just contact
the <a href="mailto:webmaster@csclub.uwaterloo.ca">Webmaster</a> or the
