If you have logged onto a Math terminal in the past few weeks, you have probably noticed the announcement that MFCF is going to do away with the Picard server at the end of the spring term. This is a complete outrage. Think of all that Picard has done for us over the years — much like its namesake, Capt. Picard, the server has been reliable, experienced, and a true leader to the people (servers) around it.
In order to protect Picard from an untimely end, a group has been formed with MEF funding, and their sole mandate is to protect our glorious Picard. This new group, the Save Picard Foundation (or SPF) encountered trouble getting SPF.com, so the group will technically be called SPF 15. The initial meeting will be held in MC 7046 on Monday at 4:30.
Patrick Stewart was unavailable for comment, but his publicist has stated that he is completely against the destruction of the server which bears one of his character's names. [Especially since SFU trashed their Gurney Halleck server — TaxiEd] MFCF has commented something to the effect of it not really being named after Capt. Picard, but few students accept this statement.
Stop the tyranny of MFCF! Save Capt. Picard!
