Week review

This week we had the Ugly Christmas Sweater Social, where we got a 100 free beers from 't gat. We also had a ton of Santa hats to give out and it was very well attended. I hope everybody had a good time!

On a more serious note, the Cover server went down yesterday. It's back up and running, but if you send any emails using the Cover mailing tool the mails will probably be delayed a couple of days!
