Well, the digest is now under new management - hello to all the old WCSOites
on soc-wcso-digest that haven't been seen around Cambridge for months.

What happened in the orchestra:
WCSO had it's AGM. As well as voting for a new committee, we voted on
whether to change the name - so as from next year, we will officially be the
University of Cambridge Philharmonic Orchestra, or UCPO (see below...).

Meanwhile, back in soc-wcso-misc:
 - We lost the outside world, provoking panic amongst the denizens of s-w-m.
It was found again in the middle of the night.
 - We attempted to answer the question 'Neatly ironed shirts are a
capitalist device to suppress the working masses into a life of ironic
drudgery. Discuss'
 - We discussed the WCSO family tree. Harris has Fi as a grandma, and Sarah
as both uncle and great great uncle...
 - Various ideas were discussed for adding/removing mailing lists, and
Beccy's legs returned as a topic of debate. Anyone on this list feel like
soc-wcso-ex, for people who've gone but still want to stay in touch?
 - We worked out what we could call ourselves after the change of name.
People appear to have settled on 'uck-poo', although 'fucpo' was also
suggested. People who weren't at the AGM bitched about the way the vote
went, showing a good sense of modern democracy.
 - There was a random religious debate provoked by
http://www.thetruthforyouth.com/images/comics/evolution/page1.html
 - Rob discovered that we couldn't call ourselves FUCPO, as it already
stands for "la Fundación Cultural del Patrimonio de Oruro"...
 - Biologists are evil. Or not.
 - WCSO is having a formal hall (contact Mark Pritchard for more details)

first place." - tjop2


More digests, and web-type thingies, over the next few weeks...
