Tardis will be down for electrical testing from 14:00 on Tuesday 4th December.
Assuming nothing fails, I will attempt to have everything back up as soon as possible™


The Tardis Project is a computing facility, run and maintained by students of The University of Edinburgh. It was one of the first such projects of its kind, founded in 1987 by the School of Informatics (previously Department of Computer Science) and is still held in high regard. Tardis provides services to members of the University, such as web hosting and mail access.

One of the Tardis Project's main aims is to allow students at the university to be involved in running a large computing system, and learn the experience required to design, build and maintain such a system.

Accounts are open to all students and staff, for more information, please see the Account Applications, or contact us with any queries you may have.

More about the Tardis Project and its purpose can be found in The Tardis Charter.

Next meeting

We regularly have meetings in the The Auld Hoose on Mondays at 1830. All are welcome and we would especially like to meet any freshers interested in the project or who want accounts.

If you would like to chat to existing tardis users, our timelords or assistants (sysadmins) please join our IRC channel: #tardis on ImaginaryNET.
