Discussion Topics for Forthcoming Operational Meetings

At the operational meeting held on the 10th of October 2007, it was agreed that in an effort to stimulate discussion in the operational meetings, a list of topics for discussion would be maintained.

The next Operational Meeting will be on 8th May 2019. Please add your discussion topics below:

  • ...
  • Powerful machines in personal offices - Adam - 2019.05.21
    • There have been a few requests for quite powerful workstations, running a few GPUs. These would be running in offices. I talked to e.g. Jacques who would like another 2 or 3 dual GPU workstations as well. Is this something we should be worried about for whatever reason - power consumption, security?

To add votes for a topic, please add either a '+' to indicate interest or a '-' to indicate uninterest. One vote per person please!
