The Royal Military School immerses its pupils, employees and visitors daily in a bath of traditions that have their origins in the history of the school. One of these traditions is the 'Pampou', the song of every pupil at the school that is sung loudly at the events. It is a song in which the pupils complain about the strict regimes and the work they get. 'Pampou' is also the name of a pamphlet within the school, in which pupils metaphorically give their unambiguous opinion about all sorts of things. So the 'Pampou' has always been an outlet for the pupils. It still is! On this blog the students and executives express their opinions and share their personal stories.

New computing power against COVID-19
On Wednesday 11 March, just before the COVID-19 lockdown in Belgium, the nVidia DGX Station for the SSAVE project arrived at the Royal Military Academy. In the meantime, the COVID-19 crisis struck hard, and the Folding@Home project announced that it is launching computations in support of the search for drug binding sites on the new virus. We decided to immediately deploy the DGX station to donate spare computing cycles to this project.
