\section*{Membership:}
Membership in the Computer Science Club is open to anyone willing to join,
though voting membership is only open to undergraduate math students at the
University of Waterloo. Membership costs \$2 per term and may be paid in
advance. What does membership get you?
Here's the quick summary: your fee supports club events that are
open to all and grants you access to club services such as our computing environment,
office, pop fridge, and library. It also makes you eligible for volunteer positions in the club, if you'd
prefer to do more than just pay to support our activites.
Membership in the Computer Science Club is open to anyone in the University of
Waterloo community, costs \$2 per term, and may be paid in
advance. Members have lots of benefits, and support our events. In particular,
they have access to club services such as our computing environment, web
hosting, office, pop fridge, and library.
\section*{Events:}
\subsection*{Office:}
Each term, the CSC runs numerous acadamic and social events.
These events run the gamut from
socials, the most infamous being the end of term dinner, CTRL-D; through
tutorials and workshops, including an introduction to the CS student's best
friend: the UNIX environmen; to talks from professors and Computer Science
luminaries. Some talks from the past include Bill Gates in 1989 (before he
was famous), John McCarthy in 1994 (he created LISP), and more recently,
Joel Spolsky of Fog Creek Software, Bjarne Stroustrup, and Richard Stallman.
We have also toured the labs of the Institute for Quantum Computing after
enjoying a talk from the director Raymond Laflamme on the future of quantum
computation and the current state of programming available to quantum
computers.
The CS Club office can be found in MC 3036/3037. It houses the library, members
during our business hours, the pop fridge, and of course, five office
computers. It is open most any hour of the night and day and populated by
helpful and friendly office staff.\\[5mm]

\section*{Services:}
The Computer Science Club provides several services to its members, including
a computing environment with all the toppings, a library of literature, and an
a computing environment with all the fixings, a library of literature, and an
office to use it all in.
\subsection*{Computing Environment:}
\vspace{-1mm}
The main benefit 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 AMD64. Our primary development machine, taurine, is a
dual AMD Opteron (4 cores in total) with 8 GB of RAM. Most of our machines
are connected via gigabit ethernet. We offer 4 GB of disk quota that is
accessible from all of our machines. Our wiki contains a full machine list.
\subsection*{Computing Environment:}
Members also receive a username@csclub.uwaterloo.ca email address,
accessible via POP3, IMAP, and webmail.
The main benefit CSC members enjoy is access to our various machines. Our
primary development machine, {\tt high-fructose-corn-syrup}, is a quad AMD
Opteron (64 cores in total) with 192 GB of RAM. Most of our network is on
gigabit ethernet. We offer all members 4 GB of disk quota that is accessible
from all of our machines.\\[-3mm]
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.
