The problem with the Internet is that we need to have a MAC address
approved for the ethernet port (s) in 1131 Kemper, and the CS
department has never been willing to tive us that.

We've always needed to reserve the room in cooperation with the CS
club. We're not sure what the current status of the CS club is right
now (it died with a whimper last year), so we might need to build for
ourselves a new "wrapper script" to interact with the campus if the CS
Club doesn't some how get resurrected.

Any 2004-2005 CS club officers out there? I think LUGOD has historically
appointed an officer (the president?) of the CS Club as our CS Club
Liason, and the CS Club Liason has been on vox-officers, and attends
LUGOD officer meetings. (Am I right? I've never been a LUGOD officer).
