Greetings to all who still read this forum.
Some time ago, the SIUE Computer Science website maintained a listing of senior projects, with their membership, presentations, and other related artifacts, for both recently completed projects and previous semesters.
Currently both links are broken. I don't mean to imply that CAOS has any direct relationship to the operation of www.cs.siue.edu, but I thought it might be worth asking here first. Does anyone know if these projects are still available online? And if not, does anyone have contacts with the maintainers of the CS department website, that they might be asked if this resource could be made available again?
I realize it's summer break, but if you're reading this you're likely closer to campus than I am, and may have better luck in finding someone to help.
The good news is CAOS hasn't died yet. A group of our current upper classmen (including myself) have relaunched it this semester. We are planning on starting it right again. If you haven't noticed Kyle Turley and I have revamped the blog with some cool features and facebook connectivity. Please check it out because feedback is appreciated. http://caos.siue.edu You will notice the sidebar has a link to a facebook page. This will be the new home for CAOS communication. Facebook has easy access so people might actually chat back. I encourage any one who has actually read this to join in on the conversation.

Hey guys, I graduated last spring and joined the Able Few back in August of 2011. We're growing fast and looking for some new talent with some Rails experience. I have to say, if you like small companies and the startup experience, this is such an awesome job. Here's the details if you're interested:
The Able Few (http://theablefew.com) is looking for a Junior Ruby on Rails Developer to join our team. We specialize in building web applications and software for brands and services large and small. Join a passionate team building cutting edge applications!
Candidates should be in St. Louis or Indianapolis.
And to know their way around: - Apache and Nginx - CentOS, Ubuntu, and OSX
I would agree with Peter. The forums were bustling back when they were the first thing anyone in the CS Computer Lab would see upon opening a browser. I eventually stopped checking the landing page because I knew nothing new was going to be posted anymore. It would be pretty awesome if we could change things around again. We get new CS students every year--why not give them a taste of what CAOS is supposed to be?
(On that note, does CAOS even actually do events anymore? I haven't seen mention of anything at all in well over half a year.)

Not to beat a dead horse here, but I'm going to agree with Grim. All I see when I go to caos.siue.edu is an old post from March 16, 2011. The area of the site that sees the most activity should be most prominently featured. Just my 2 cents, which isn't worth much since I haven't visited this site in quite a long time :)

David Mason and Associates, an engineering firm in downtown St. Louis, is looking to hire a CS major as a summer intern for their IT department. Their web site is http://www.davidmason.com/
The responsibilities would be assisting in maintaining the desktop computers and server systems. Our three offices, St. Louis, Dallas and Chicago, have linked server systems, and our CAD technicians are running dual monitor systems. All platforms are on Microsoft Windows.
