Hackerkväll with the Information Organ

Another Thursday, another hackerkväll!

"What is a 'hackerkväll'?", you might ask. In that case you can find more information on the event from last week, here: https://datasektionen.se/en/news/11077

This week we will (probably) be in a computer hall in the Q house, rather than the E house as usual. ~~Exact location will be posted later.~~ More exactly, we are in XQ25

Hiking and overnight stay in Roslagsleden

Welcome to an exciting hiking event along Etapp 1 of Roslagsleden!🌲🥾 This fantastic 15 km long trail will take you on a scenic journey through the beautiful landscapes of Roslagen, where you can experience Swedish nature in a more adventurous way. No previous hiking experience is required to participate, but you should be in good shape and able to carry your own sleeping bag 💪🏞️.

We will meet outside META on Friday, September 22nd at 5:30 PM, and from there, we will head to Roslagsleden, where we will hike, cook on camp stoves, and sleep in tents under the stars ✨🏕️. We will return home on Saturday, September 23rd, around 5:00 PM. The sports committee is paying for the food 🍲.

OBS You don't have to stay overnight; it's perfectly fine to only participate in the hike and then go home later at night. We will stop at Rösjö camping, where you can take bus 607 to Danderyd Hospital, and from Danderyd Hospital, you can take the subway home.

(If you're going to stay overnight) Please bring your own sleeping bag and a positive attitude, and let's together create an unforgettable experience in nature! 🌿🌟 IMPORTANT You must bring your own sleeping bag, hiking backpack and water bottles! It might be possible to borrow if you don't have one, but we cannot guarantee anything 🎒💧.

If you're not going to sleep in a tent, we recommend bringing some form of tool or means of keeping the mosquitoes away when you go to sleep. Mosquito nets usually work well 🦟.

Date: 22/9 - 23/9 Meeting point: META Destination: Etapp 1 Distance: 15 km 🗓️🏞️🥾

Welcome (back) to META!

Hello dear Computer Science and Media! First and foremost, a warm welcome to all new students! We hope you're enjoying your time here so far, and a hearty welcome back to the rest of you! Computer Science and Media are fortunate enough to have a chapter hall in their possession called META. META is our beautiful space that always takes care of us, soo... it means we must show some love in return! META hasn't always been left in an okay condition over the past week. If you happen to be the last one in META and decide to leave, you MUST ensure that ALL windows (please check the meeting room windows too) and doors are closed! Furthermore, the lights should be turned off, as the META ghosts prefer dark mode. 😎

Tl;dr: When you leave META, make sure doors and windows are closed and the lights are off!

In addition to these more serious matters above, here's some good-to-know information:

  • Your parents won't come to META to do the dishes, so make sure you handwash everything you use.

  • The door to META is a bit heavy, and the handle is easily damaged, so it's always best to use the automatic door opener; it saves the METAdors a lot of work!

  • META sometimes (quite often) has poor air quality, which improves if you force the ventilation. This is done through a timer button located to the left of the cabinets in the kitchenette (in the corner farthest into the kitchenette).

Kayaking with the Sports Club

Hello Chapter! 🍁🚣‍

Sign up at: https://dsekt.se/647- 📝

A new fall semester is upon us. With it comes autumn and a colder climate. But before it gets too cold, and the water is still somewhat warm, the sports committee will arrange another day of kayak paddling! On the 9th of September, we will once again travel to Velamsund and take the water-bound vessels out for a spin. All members that sign up are welcome.🤽🌊

The plan is to meet up at 9:00 at the bus station at Slussen. From there, we will commute together to Kihls gård, walk the rest of the way, and arrive at the kayaking clubhouse around 10:00.

Depending on how many sign up, we will split up into groups of ~20 people and paddle one group at a time. We will have one morning and one afternoon session. There will be activities on land when the others are out paddling, and if you want to go for a run or hike trails out there, you are welcome to do so! 🏃‍♀️🏞️

For lunch, we will offer hotdogs 🌭 and waffles 🧇. There will also be fika ☕ and fruit 🍓 to eat during the day.

Schedule (might be subjected to change or delays):

  • 9:00 AM - We meet at Slussen to commute to Velamsund.
  • 10:00ish - We arrive at Velamsund. If you need to change, you can do that now. We will serve some bread 🍞, tea 🍵 and coffee ☕ now.
  • 10:30ish - The first group starts kayaking.
  • 10:30-12:30 One group is paddling. The other group will be doing whatever they feel like on land. We will bring frisbees 🥏, spikeball 🏐, brännboll ⚾, etc.
  • 12:30 - Lunch. Hotdogs + potato salad, and waffles are served.
  • 13:30-15:30 - The second group paddles.
  • 15:30-17:30 - Free time. It is possible to paddle more or do other activities on land.
  • 17:30-18:00 - Time to go home. If the weather is nice and people want to stay, we could probably stay longer. 🌅

Practicalities:

IMPORTANT! You need to be able to swim to join the paddling. 🏊‍♂️

  • Bring proper clothing 👕
    • Something to paddle in. 🚣‍♀️
    • A jacket to shield you from the cold 🧥
    • Warm gloves when paddling this time of year might be nice 🧤
    • Clothes for being active on land. 👟
    • Change of clothes for after you paddled. 👕
  • Towel, if you fall into the water or want to take a shower. 🛀
  • The Chapter is not paying for the trip to and from the location of paddling. 🚗💰

Enjoy the event and have a great time! 😊🌊🚣‍♂️
