AlumXi Elections

Welcome to election month. In addition to the US Presidential election, there is also a super important election for AlumXi board members. The ballot will be open from Nov. 22 to Dec 6. You should receive a link to vote via email the day voting opens. We have 8 great candidates running for 5 slots; please check out their running platforms in the email.

Moving to Static Content

This website runs WordPress, which is a very popular blogging engine. The problem with WordPress is that it is also very popular to hack. Hence why this website has been down for a few months.

To get out of the hacker amusement business, we are switching to a static-content site where we pre-generate html that is then served with nginx.

Upside: speed! stability! security!
Downside: Interactivity comparable to the internet circa 1997.

So, if you want interactivity, join Tep Xi Chapter group on facebook.
