Kopano gets high tech

KOPANO residents have celebrated the opening of a new computer room that boasts six new Duron Gigahertz computers. The laboratory is funded entirely by network fees paid by the residents. The six Duron PCs are the pride of the laboratory, each machine twice as fast as computers in most Campus labs.

The opening of the computer room coincided with the launch of the redesigned Kopano website.
