The Name:lil_cain picked the name, despite the objections of the rest of the admin team, because it "went well with minerva". It's obviously not named after a certain house master from a certain series of books.


At the end of the 06/07 academic year, atlas got CSD to agree to host our backup machine. Phaxx earlier got a machine donated to do this from those nice people at blue socket (I actually have no idea if it was these people, or whether they're nice, but this is the rumour). Unfortunately, switching said machine didn't seem to have any effect at first, and all a bit of tinkering produced was black smoke from the PSU. Decided that this wasn't really what we wanted from a backup machine, and that it wasn't big enough given our vastly increased storage machine, we went to grant apped for a new back up machine, and early in the 07/08 academic year, lil_cain ordered this from encom.
