The Harvard Computer Society will be holding its introductory meeting and 
office hours this Monday, September 25, in Science Center room 229. Pizza 
and soft drinks will be served.

Existing members, potential members and everyone in between are invited to 
hear and propose ideas for this year's projects and learn what the Harvard 
Computer Society is all about. Existing members vary widely in technical 
expertise, and it's definitely possible to make a contribution and enjoy 
being involved with the society, even if you're not (yet) a Linux guru. 
Most members of the society aren't computer science concentrators, and 
anyone at Harvard interested in computers should attend this meeting, 
regardless of background.

Potential projects for this year include continuing to maintain and 
upgrade our servers running Ubuntu Linux, continuing the guest speakers 
program that's brought speakers like Paul Graham, Stephen Wolfram, Steve 
Wozniak, Cory Doctorow and Tim O'Reilly to campus, rejuvenating the 
currently dormant but previously popular series of on-campus seminars 
introducing Harvardians to Photoshop, LaTeX, the GIMP and other useful 
software, providing much-needed companionship to lonely Harvardians at 
Valentine's Day through our famed Datamatch program and anything else 
members find to be of interest.

Student groups and individuals with questions about HCS services are also 
encouraged to attend, and we'll be happy to provide you with a slice of 
pizza and some useful assistance. If you can't make it to office hours, 
please contact account services at acctserv at hcs.harvard.edu to see if we 
can solve your problem via email or make an appointment.

at the meeting.
