18th - Singer implements the newsgroups reorganisation (this had been proposed over a year ago, but was left unimplemented after there was no real feedback or suggestions). Surrounding the 10th birthday event there was some discussion on the boards about what could encourage new members on to redbrick, and the question of a newsgroups cleanup was again revisited, and singer acted on it! Boards were deleted & renamed!

29th - Colmmacc announces on the boards that Sun Microsystems are donating a T2000 server. (http://www.sun.com/servers/coolthreads/t2000), which will arrive in about a month's time.

30th - link logs into wiki as yaac123 and adds this to TimeLine2006 entry to confirm he is fully logged in

31st - wiki brought back online after some more hacking (anonymous editing had been disabled on it, but accounts could be created anonymously, which is how hackers got in).

  Chairperson: Charlie Von Metzradt (phaxx)

3rd & 4th - The 12th generation of brickies join at C&S days. MoJu is the first gen12 to appear in chat (he managed to get in weeks before the accounts were created), and seems to already be spending an obsssive length of time online.

10th - RedBrick freshers ball is held in the Vaults Night Club. Not many freshers actually turn up, most likely due to the storm conditions that night. Unusual amounts of lesbian activity entertain those that came though. - gallery.redbrick.dcu.ie/receive/ca2/rbfreshers

28th - receive wastes a large amount of time trying to put stuff in to the wiki, and finds himself still there at 4.30am


There was a lengthy discussion on the newsgroups (redbrick.babble) about "Redbrick 2.0", initiated by cammy (i.e. should Redbrick combine all it's different web services to make "Redbrick on the web" for our members, make things easier to use ala Bebo, should we get rid of the command line NNTP newsgroups). (Copy of the posting can be see on cammy's blog. [1]) Redbrick web forums were started as a web alternative (parallel?) to the newsgroups.
