Great way to start the season

Cracking the whip
Having been part of a team that designed and tested and shipped literally 10s of thousands of switches into production this is a painful error...
In 2013, Cisco issued a 'field notice' warning of a problem with its very expensive 3650 and 3850 Series Switches, used in many datacenters around the world.

My guess is the reason there are six students on the list is because it is covering all the deaths since May (not just within the last month)
October's will be shorter (hopefully zero and won't be necessary)

ATS - This stands for At The Shak, and it's important. Band runs on it's own timetable. When an event on the Canonical is listed as an ATS, that means you should leave whatever you're doing and head to the shak. For instance, if you'e chilling in J-Ro or eating burritos at Treehouse Monday night and leave at the 7 ATS to get to rehearsal, you'll probably get to the shak on time with a few minutes to spare to oil up your horn and blow some air through it. When there is an event you are actually supposed to show up for at the listed time, it will be listed as ACTUAL instead of ATS. I'll make this explicitly clear on emails and the text list. In most cases, I'll also usually be at the shak right at the ATS to warm up as well if you'd rather be there right at the ATS as well.
Canonical - The Official LSJUMB Google calendar with all events. You can add it to your own calendar by going to the band website (lsjumb.stanford.edu), logging into the members section (ask me for the password...I'll give it to the frosh but you guys should know it already), scrolling down to the bottom of the calendar and clicking the "+Google Calendar" button. My eKlues will also have this information and more important sexion-specific stuff as well, but it's always nice to be able to check on your own.
trumpline (email@example.com) - The trumpz-only email list. This is where I send my eKlues (and along with the groupme text list) communicate important information. It's also where we discuss sexion projects and other cool stuff. Do not spam this list with non-relevant postings forwarded from your RA's basket-weaving A cappella group or anything like that please. I have added you all to this list (unless I made a mistake -- please let me know if that's the case).
roguesquadron (firstname.lastname@example.org) - this is the trumpz frosh email list! Every year, the sexion leader adds only themself and the new frosh to it, so it's a good place to discuss questions or plan your own hangouts. There will also be an email sent out about establishing your own band class line and list as well (for people joining in the 2015-2016 academic year), so stay tuned for that! You probably don't want to spam this list either, lest you want all your new best friends to realize you're that person.
eKlue - a weekly email sent out by the sexion leader ('sup). This tells you all the sportz games, rallies, rehearsals, and social events we'll be having that week as well as what time sexional will be. It's the most important band email you'll get, and you should read it. My eKlues will be sent out after rehearsal Monday night.
Infoline (email@example.com) - management(Punter, Brad, and Sippy)'s email list for communication with band. These emails are important and give you "must-read" information. To get on the list, you can subscribe here at mailman (FYI go to mailman.stanford.edu to manage your email lists) or send an email to our glorious webmaster KitKat (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Smutline (email@example.com) - the all-band email list that includes many alumni. Originally intended for swapping ideas for field shows, the list is also used for sharing information of interest with band. It can get spammy. Don't be the source of the spam unless you want to be dealt with accordingly. Add yourself to it here.
Monday Rehearsal - This is every Monday, 7pm ATS. Typically they will be less chaotic than the first frosh rehearsal. They're inside in fall and winter and outside in spring and summer. They're a great time to get familiar with the music and the choreography we do and to spend a little time with the sexion afterwards. If you can't sight-read well, that's okay; in sexional I can teach you the parts specifically.
Sexional - a weekly trumpz-only rehearsal run by me. We will usually go through around 3 songs in depth. I plan to split these up between beginnerz (with less trumpet experience) and playaz (if you've played before), but you're welcome to come to either or both. Coming to sexional is crucial for learning the music properly and playing well as a sexion, so it's pretty important to come if you can. It usually lasts about an hour.
Field Rehearsal - rehearsal for the field shows we perform at football. These happen Wednesday and Friday afternoon and Saturday morning before games (unless there's a Thursday game--I'll let you know what changes if that happens). You are required to go to Saturday field rehearsal and either Wednesday or Friday rehearsal to be on the field at a football game. The ATS for Wednesday and Friday is almost always 3pm. The Saturday ATS varies with the time of the football game, so I'll let you know in the eKlue.
Trumpsex - a party/social activity with trumpz! Given the band's current status, current parties will not be involving alcohol. There are tentative plans to go laser tagging and have a movie night, plus some other fun stuff along the way. If you have an idea for trumpsex, feel free to let me know! They typically happen on weekend evenings a few times each quarter.
Killa-Trunch - a time about once a week where trumpz eat lunch together. This can be at a dining hall, someone's house, or wherever there are trumpz and food. They may not always happen at lunch time either. I'll send out a location/date in the eKlue.
Rally - colorful, wild, awesome clothes, like the stuff you saw us wearing at all campus or maybe Admit Weekend if you came to that. It usually needs to be appropriate for children (we play a lot of events with children), but beyond that it's really up to you! Trumpz rally bins have extra if you need it; try to keep it organized.
Volleyball Uniform - blue jeans, white shirt, and a band hat (you'll be given this either at your first football or volleyball game). NO VEST.
Basketball Uniform - same as volleyball uniform but with a vest you get from Propz--the people downstairs between the bonz cave and the tenr room across from the bathrooms. Bring your student ID or driver's license to use as collateral.
Football Uniform - black pants, white button down shirt, ugly tie, band hat, red jacket from propz (again, you'll need to bring an ID for collateral), sunglasses, and white shoes (white shoes aren't essential--if you don't have any just wear athletic shoes you can run around in all game). Other sexions have slightly different variations, but if you're playing trump you should look like this.
Modesquad - a trumpz word used to close important emails. It comes from the repeated invocation of The Conglomerate (formerly known as Flipmode Squad) by a now old fart trump named Andy Rosen (old fartz are what we call band alumni. That makes us young fartz). We use it to close important emails. It can also be used as a verb or as a way of referring to each other--you guys are my modesquad.
