1) Minutes of last meeting accepted.

   a. Still having problems with the daily web hit logging.  It will stop
      incrementing the daily log file and just pile up the records in one file.

3) Bob reported on RockNet's web site:
   a. The King Farm citizen association web pages were added, along with a
      maintenance account.
   b. We had some form of network problems over the past weekend.  Traceroute
      indicated problems in the CapuNet segment of the network.  The problems
      seem to clear up on Monday.

4) Security issues are still un-addressed, but we don't have any known problems.
   Our vulnerabilities are limited.

5) The City budget process requires input from RockNet.  Bob will submit a letter
   to Mike, essentially asking for the same level of support as in the FY 2001 

6) The group developed a list of activities for this calendar year, as follows.
   a. Conduct education for citizens on web page authoring and related
      tools and technology.
   b. Redesign the RockNet web site. The City is planning to redesign theirs.
   c. Acquire and install security tools (Black Ice).
   d. Conduct a security audit.
   e. Revive the calendar process.  Perhaps add a self serve tool.
   f. Acquire a digital camera for citizen groups to borrow.  Will help in 
      posting more pictures from around the city.  We know pictures bring 
      traffic.  The camera needs to be simple to use and use standard floppy
   g. Consider posting coupons for City activities and businesses.
   h. Set up a Rockville Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
   i. Consider setting up an "Ask Mr. Rockville".
   j. Set up web based archiving for the NTList email list server.
