Written by Friedrich Zahn, 2018-09-10. Permalink

During the next two days (2018-09-11 and 2018-09-12) a Studentenwerk contractor will repair some faulty fiber connections at Gret-Palucca-Straße. We do not have backup links available for all sites connecting through the affected fibres, which will cause some outages at the sites mentioned above.

Due to the short notice we don't have any more detail for now, we will give updates as soon as we know more.

Update (2018-09-11):
Around 9:10am GPS11 and Neuberinstraße went offline, ca. 10:20am the connections were reestablished. Besides some short interruptions to verify the fiber link quality there should be no further problems, by this evening the work should be finished.

Upcoming network outage at Zeunerstraße

Zeunerstraße

Written by Vincent Knyrim, 2018-08-28. Permalink

During the next weeks – among other works – the university data centre needs to move some patch panels at Trefftz-Bau.

A result is a total network outage at Zeunerstraße. It will last for several hours.

This outage will most likely happen on 2018-09-10 or 2018-09-11. We will inform you as soon as more details are known to us.

Update (2018-09-01):
Due to a delivery problem the works are delayed, and thus the network outage is delayed, too.

Update (2018-09-06):
It has been confirmed that the outage will occur on Monday, 2018-09-10, from 8 to 11am.

Update (2018-09-10):
As of 10:30am the dormitory uplink has been reestablished and everything is back in working order.

English translation of forms

All members

Written by Vincent Knyrim, 2018-07-04. Permalink

Due to the new European General Data Protection Regulation we had to split up and revise our forms. Up to this point the new versions of the membership application, services form and moving notification were only available in German.

Now the services form and moving notification are available in English, too, so you do not have to use the German version anymore.

Since the membership application form is basically the written contract between our members and the AG DSN, we want its translation to be legally verified before deploying it. Thus, you can not use it to apply for membership at the moment. However, to make filling in the German version easier for you, we added the current English translation as a reference to our help sheet (on page 2): universallyfor Gerokstraßefor Hochschulstraße

If you should find any mistranslations, please let us know!

New service - HTTP Cache for Steam

All student houses except Gerok- and Hochschulstraße

Written by Friedrich Zahn, 2018-03-03. Permalink

We are happy to announce a new service for our members, an HTTP cache. Once you enable the service in your usersuite, downloads from the supported services (currently only Steam) are redirected to an internal server, which is caching all downloaded data. Therefore multiple downloads of the same data only need to be fetched from the internet once.

The aim of this service is to reduce bandwidth usage on our uplink to the university, and to provide an improved experience, since our local network is much more capable.

We tested the service extensively, but please be aware that it will never move beyond a beta status, due to the inherent dependencies on the cached services. If you experince problems, we can only provide limited help, and you might have to disable it again.

More technical information, a list of the supported services and know problems can be found here.

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.

From the 1st of October we will be running the network of Gret-Palucca-Straße 11.

Since the student house will not yet be inhabitable by then, new tenants will have to move into GPS 9 temporarily. The Studentenwerk will no longer provide new connections at GPS 9, but we have taken measures to ensure network access for our members at GPS 9, anyhow.

So, if you are a future tenant of GPS 11:

  1. Sign up for membership:

    • Read about the registration process.
    • Fill the form twice, put in your future GPS 11 address, sign it, hand it in.
  2. Connect to our network at GPS 9.

  3. Move into GPS 11 - no further action required, if gave us the correct GPS 11 room on the form.

Existing GPS 9 tenants can continue to use their Stutentenwerk network connection until they move into GPS 11. Once you live there, you will have to sign up with us or some commercial provider.

We plan to outfit GPS 11 with the new network hardware on October 19th. If you are interested in our volunteers work and would like to help, get in touch or just come over!

Confirmation of New Constitution

All Members

Written by Stefan Haller, 2016-11-25. Permalink

On the 9th of November 2016 our general assembly adopted a new constitution. The constitution was approved by the Studentenrat of TU Dresden yesterday and therefore it is binding from now on.

A summary of the changes is listed below:

  • The termination of passive and active membership is standardized.
  • Team meetings can appoint active members.
  • Some inconsistencies have been removed.
  • Active members can get a reimbursement limited to the amount of the membership contribution.

New payment details

Written by Willi Meißner, 2016-11-17. Permalink

Because of a restructuring our payment details for Borsbergstraße and Zeunerstraße have changed. The new one is the same one as at Wundstraße. The bank account is:

Beneficiary
Studentenrat TUD - AG DSN
Bank
Ostsächsische Sparkasse Dresden
IBAN
DE61 8505 0300 3120 2195 40
BIC
OSDD DE 81 XXX
Reference
User-ID, Last name, First name, Building/Room

Please use only the new payment details from now. Don't panic if you already made a transaction to the old bank account. This will be no problem. The old bank account will be deactivated towards the end of the year.

New finance regulation

All student houses

Written by Willi Meißner, 2016-11-12. Permalink

We changed our finance regulation at the general assembly on 09/27/2016.

There are two important differences:

  • There is a new Sentence at §2 paragraph 2. It regulate the fee if you terminate your membership before the end of a month. For you is important that you announce your departure before the end of the month.
  • At §2 we add a new paragraph 5. It regulate the repayment of membership fees. You have time period of 31 days now to demand the repayment of overpaid fees.

This changes were made to reduce our additional work so that we can concentrate at more important things (e.g. your support-mails and the maintenance of the network).

You can find the full wording at the finance regulation. This can also be found at the top navigation at Legal Aspects → Finance constitutions.

Everyday sysadmins are keeping the it infrastructure up and running. Your computer is working, your printer is jamm-free and the internet is stable. That's because you got an awesome sysadmin.

So show your appreciation and buy your local admins from the student residencies, at university or work a drink or thank them. They deserve some appreciation for keeping the systems running in the background.

New finance regulation

Hochschulstraße Wundtstraße Zellescher Weg Borsbergstraße Gerokstraße Zeunerstraße

Written by Felix Wollert, 2016-03-20. Permalink

According to the plenary meeting on March 9th, a new, uniform finance regulation will take effect from April 1st 2016. Beforehand, amount and mode of the contributions differed depending on the local division of the AG DSN.

Summary: The simplest method for you to pay is to transfer 21€ to the respective bank account at the beginning of each semester.

Details:

  • Contributions are due monthly
  • The contributions are due the last day of each month
  • If the membership starts after the 14th of a month, the contribution for this month is omitted
  • The contribution amount is 3.50€, which is equivalent to 21€ per semester

The main motivation for this change is to make the contributions more uniform and fair. Members who stay only for a few months will only have to pay for the time they are actually using the network, no registration fee is due anymore.

Furthermore we are working hard to establish the same high-quality (gigabit to each room) network everywhere, especially at the formerly cheaper Gerok-, Borsberg- and Zeunerstraße. We have already put substantial effort into these upgrades.

Finally, uniform regulations will help us to save on time spent on administrative tasks, so that we can provide faster responses on support inquiries and work more on technical improvements.

You can find the full regulation here, please feel free to contact us.

Since yesterday (2015-10-25), the netzwork connection at Gerokstraße experienced outages. The DHCP-server of the dormitory did not work properly. We fixed the issues about noon, the connection should be stable again.

Besides the basic redesign, completely new features have been added. When logged in, you can change your password, mail forward and mac address, and you can contact us easily using the contact form.

Besides: The source code of this site is freely available! You can find it at github.

On Thursday (2015-09-17) the Studentenwerk is going to check the electric installations at Wundtstraße 3 on floor 0-9 and 11-16, which will cause power outages between 9 and 12am. Our network will also be affected since our switches are located at floor 4, 11 and 16. Due to the radiolink on the roof of Wu3 the dormitories Borsberg- and Gerokstraße will also be affected.

Liebe Mitglieder,

wir haben intern ein wenig umgestellt, daher ist der Mailserver für Bewohner der Wundtstraße und des Zelleschen Weges ab sofort unter mail.wh2.tu-dresden.de verfügbar, und nicht mehr unter atlantis.wh2.tu-dresden.de . Die Website ist nur noch unter www.wh2.tu-dresden.de erreichbar.

Liebe Mitglieder,

durch Umbauarbeiten auf dem Dach des Studentenwohnheims Wundstraße 3 ist es zu einer unvorhergesehenden Unterbrechung der Internetanbindung gekommen. Wir versuchen das Problem möglichst schnell zu lösen.
