After the committee's fruitless searching for the missing RedBrick banner, SU president Alan Keegan comes to the rescue on the morning of the 6th. Apparently the banner had been hiding in meeting room 3 since Tech Week 09. Ceiling Cat's screen, keyboard and mouse are brought down and attached to Coconut's laptop so that people can play with RedBrick's services at the desk. An animated ascii train is the highlight. Attol and Coconut crash a CA1 lecture. Attol gets stagefright and says about 5 words, so Carri and Coconut handle the rest of the crashed lectures.
