Welcome to the UCC wiki!
You may have been looking for the main UCC website.
This is a collection of all things UCC. There are guides on using various services at UCC, information about our Network and Machines and several lists such as what has been borrowed from the club. This wiki is open for anyone to read, make new articles or update existing ones. Every little bit of knowledge added helps everyone.

RecentChanges: see where people are currently working
WantedPages: referred pages still to be created
WikiSandBox: feel free to change this page and experiment with editing
FindPage: search or browse the database in various ways
HelpOnMoinWikiSyntax: quick access to wiki syntax
