WHWS Staff - Return your Keycards!

Keycards look like this!
All WHWS staff must return their keycards before they leave for the summer.  The deadline is no later than Tuesday May 10th (same day the dorms close).   If you need your card later than that, talk to Greg Cotterill.

Return keycards to the manila envelope on the wall just inside the main (rear) door.

And seriously folks, we don't have a lot of spare cards left and it's both expensive and difficult to get new cards, so DON'T FORGET TO RETURN THEM!!!

Internet Audio Streaming is Flaky

We are aware that there is something wrong with our live webcast; we believe it's a problem with Live365 but having a lot of trouble nailing it down.  Whatever it is, it's causing the stream to randomly drop out for 5 to 10 minutes at a time every half-hour or so.
