CyberBuzz is ready for account migration

CyberBuzz, which has been in the works for over a year, is ready to accept accounts of student groups.

After many delays, CyberBuzz is now ready to begin account migration for student groups. However, since OIT wants to restructure Georgia Tech's web architecture, student organizations that were originally on www.gatech.edu (a.k.a. Mordred) have been requested to be the first ones to migrate.
Some 40 organizations listed on the CyberBuzz web page (http://cyberbuzz.gatech.edu) still need to move before work can continue for both OIT and the CyberBuzz administrators. Other groups can request an account but requests will not be processed until after the other 40 organizations move first.
Other groups who have already moved should make sure that the proper links work from their old pages because access will soon be lost to those pages. Organizations who have migrated to other servers do not need to migrate again. However, CyberBuzz will become the default source of information for student organizations, and it is also in the regular rotation for information backup from OIT, which most organizational servers do not regularly do.
As far as accounts are concerned, a group must provide contact information of the person responsible for its web page. A seed code will be provided and must used to get other information necessary to log in that will be provided via e-mail. It is important that the seed code is kept until after the password has been changed after the first log in.
The CyberBuzz server will be different from the previous PRISM accounts. CGIs can be run with approval. Common forms will be provided for uses such as e-mail responses. A master image directory will be provided for access to items such as backgrounds, Georgia Tech logos, Buzz images, etc. Also, E-mail to organizations will be restructured. CyberBuzz will be used for the web page or ftp interface. An E-mail program will automatically forward any E-mail from a CyberBuzz E-mail address to MAGIC accounts (e.g. dsadm, dpub).
Groups who need to migrate accounts to CyberBuzz include the following: ACM, Alpha Gamma Delta, AIESEC, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Alpha Phi Omega, African-American Student Organization, Alpha Xi Delta, Alpha Chi Omega, Black Graduate Student Association, North Avenue Review, The Technique, TAA, ODK, Pi Kappa Phi, Phi Kappa Tau, Phi Kappa Theta, Pool Team, Presidents' Council, Sailing Club, Society of Black Engineers, Society of Literature and Science, Tau Beta Pi, Theta Chi, Theta Xi, and Zeta Beta Tau.
Anyone with any questions shouldcontact WebAdmin@ cyberbuzz.gatech.edu.
