AP: James to make posters to advertise admin position externally for a week.
James and Mike busted someone using lots of bandwith to download torrents, may have also had a virus which is illegal and could get us a problem. It should be a practical issue rather than a legal one- there are som e basic things we can do to prevent this.
A filtering system to block sites in impractical, just be vigilent.
Proposal- to set the network to prioritise the action room/ admin computers and prioritise email/work sites rather than Youtube/music sites as if a few people are using these sites it can make the internet slow for all users. This is a good plan- we should do it.
We currently have 2 meg broadband and perhaps this outdated for our usage as our monthly traffic limit is usually reached within a week. This means we get slowed down during peak times.
AP: Mike to contact Bt to cost upgrade of package.
Server- would be very useful to have user profiles and restrict printing. Might cost £300- Mike will look into and estimate costs.
- financial year starts 1/10 but we don't have WG budget figures before september.
Are budgets working- might be a bit high in some areas, could do with re-jigging.
need to curb spending or up income- wastage is a problem, need to tighten belt.
Should budgets be put on lockdown?
KMs and Admin should be weary of all spending and make more difficult.
AP: Stephen to look into whether records of WG spending exist, have a look at figures.
grants shouldn't neccessarily be conditional on events, reluctant to restrict grant remit- Stephen will ask those awarded grants to provide photos and details of projects.
Lockend Girls Group get monthly grant.
