Adjustment of membership contribution

All members

Written by Sebastian Geisler, Friedrich Zahn, 2018-02-07. Permalink

From April 1st 2018 our membership contribution will be raised from 3.50€ per month to 5.00€ per month. The increase was discussed and enacted on the last general assembly, for which you can read the corresponding minutes here. The main reasons for the increase are our continuing efforts to bring infrastructure scale WLAN to all dormitories, increasing costs of operation due to inflation and necessary replacements of old hardware.

To avoid interruptions of service please update potential recurring payments and pay the monthly difference for all months you already paid in advance. You can see your current account balance in the user suite.

Addition 2018-03-10: In the third episode of the MultiCast we spoke about the reasons for the increase, among other things. Unfortunately the podcast is only available in German.

Replacement of defective hardware

Today from 7:30pm onward we will swap out defective hardware of our network at Hochschulstraße 46. This will result in network outages, as always we will try to keep these at a minimum.

Updates and Outages

Due to the recent security issuese named "Meltdown" and "Spectre" we had to install last week multiple Updates to fix our systems. While updating we ran into a few issues wich lead to a few small network outages.

On Monday a service didn't restored properly after a system restart so the connectivity at Hochschulstraße was limited to those who connected their computer or router prior to the reboot.

In the evening a unexpected reboot of one of our servers in a critical moment lead to outage of Gret-Palucca-Straße and Neuberinstraße due to a routing issue.

Please excuse the inconvenience.

Due to some misconfiguration, from 2017-09-23 to 2017-09-29 not all support mails have been imported into our ticket system correctly. Therefore it might take longer than usual until you get a reply to your inquiry. No mails have been lost and it is not necessary to resubmit them.
