Projects Ian Clark


It was agreed not to appoint a webmaster; instead the editor will appoint moderators for parts of the web site. The moderators will report to him.

Adrian reported a quiet year. The main activities were Ray Cannon’s moots which were very successful. Vector is coming back on schedule (he showed a copy of 21.2 which will be posted to members next week). We have most of the material for the next issue and hope to be back on schedule soon. We have two new sustaining members.

Nicholas Small presented the accounts. There were no questions.

Stephen Taylor spoke about plans for Vector and the web site. He repeated that we hope to be back on schedule soon. We have an issue in memory of and to honour Ken Iverson almost ready. He expects the emphasis to move to electronic media and wants the site to become a showcase for all varieties of APL. He hopes that the Vector site will mirror sites such as Kx and J Forum and that eventually it may become the APL preferred source world-wide.

Ray Cannon announced the next APL programming moot, to be held at Blackwater from 5th to 7th August 2005. People are encouraged to bring a computer and a sleeping bag. There are convenient takeaways and a pub opposite the hall. Everyone is invited and there will be NO CHARGE (buy your own food and drink). If you are interested you are encouraged to book early with Ray. Obviously places are limited.

The meeting closed at 2:25 pm.

Notes

Pence figures have been omitted, so columns may not add exactly.

The value of stocks of Vector have not been assessed, nor has the value of the Association’s computing hardware and software.

For 2004/05, figures are shown both as income and expenditure, i.e. revenues strictly relating to the activities of that year, and as receipts and payments, i.e. what goes in and out of our bank account. The comparative figures for 2003/04 relate to income and expenditure.
