<p>
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,
high-fructose-corn-syrup, is a 4x AMD Opteron (64 cores at 2.4 GHz)
with 64 GiB of RAM, and it easily outperforms the Linux machines available
through CSCF. Most of our machines are connected via gigabit ethernet.
We offer 4 GB of disk quota that is accessible across all of our machines.

<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 mail server 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">Roundcube web mail client</a>.
</p>
</section>
<section title="Web space">
<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 web space as follows:
</p><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>. (This directory may already exist.)
</li><li>
Put the files you want on your web page in your new <code>www</code>
directory. <code>index.{html,php}</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 web page at
<code>http://csclub.uwaterloo.ca/~username/</code>, where
<code>username</code> should be replaced by your username.</li>
</ol>
<p>Examples of configurations for more advanced web hosting setups can be
