What services does HCS provide?
Harvard Computer Society (HCS) offers two free web services available to Harvard affiliates: mailing lists and web accounts.
Mailing lists provide an efficient way to facilitate announcements to or discussion among student groups, houses, study groups, blockmates, or groups of friends. It is easy to add any number of Harvard and non-Harvard addresses to a mailing list, and administering them is simple and requires little technical expertise. They have the form firstname.lastname@example.org, and can be created here.
Web accounts are a simple way for any Harvard student group, official or unofficial, to host webpages with a few hundred MB of space, mysql database, and a email@example.com mailing address. The websites are hosted at http://www.hcs.harvard.edu/group-name, and can be requested here.
