We have had some complaint from some individual who are unable to click on any of the links in the flash intro!

There are TWO reasons!
  • either you have been using IE 7.0 which is still a RC1 and not the Final Release.
  • or, you have had IE 7.0 and have uninstalled it. Now you are unable to access the flash links from both Firefox and IE 7.0
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you! You are welcome to comment on any other obscure phenomenon you encounter regarding the flash intro. We are students in the learning process. Any mistakes we make, please let us know and we will try to fix them ASAP!

ClubsWeek Summary

As Clubsweek comes to an end, WesternSSA can yet again make claim to another successful year. Each day of the week we were able to sign up atleast 20 members, leading to a 100 member sign-up in just one week.

Looking over the membership list, the Executive Committee is excited to see increased membership amongst first years. We again welcome all first years and encourage you to stay involved while helping to carry on the tradition of a strong SSA at The University of Western Ontario.

For those that are still interesting in signing up, membership is still available at weekly meetings which are scheduled to start on October 1st, 2006.
