EngSoc wouldn't exist without its volunteers. Nobody has been paid a dime to run the system over the years, yet some of those volunteers -- and others associated with the project -- have donated more than their time.
CSES donated the first machine back in 1995 and it was called auk. The machine was a 486 running at 66MHz and it established EngSoc as a CSES service. The Carleton University Library donated a Pyramid MIS/4 in 1996. This was the first donation of equipment from outside the Faculty. The Library had just upgraded to the Pyramid Nile system. Unfortunately, the old Pyramid system is no longer around. CREL Technology, now defunct, offered EngSoc discounts on new PC hardware ca. 1996.
ODEng (which means our former Dean, Dr. Malcolm Bibby) arranged for our office in 3338ME and for the special electrical needs of the Pyramid system. Dr. Bibby also donated hardware and money out of his own pocket.
The following people donated money or valuable hardware:
Dr. M. Bibby, Charlie Younghusband, James Carriere, James Chow,
Alex deVries, Mark Dittberner, Robert Hardy, Sean Hay, Vernon Neilsen,
Mike Shaver, Joe Skaff, Paul Faure, Matt McParland, and Mo Quinn.
