I suppose this only applies to those of you who are on-campus, but enh…
After a very, very long closure, the media lounge is finally open! Fritz got us set up with 10 automatically installed Linux boxes, we’ve got new shelves, we’ve got new wiring to the server room, we’ve got a brand-spanking-new super-delcious G5… Yum! We have also purged the evil that is Windows from the lab. Yay!
Fritz and I spent a couple of hours on Saturday cleaning up and making the place presentable for regular use. Good times. Respect our hard work and keep the place clean! That means pick up your food mess, and don’t bring alcohol. There are cleaning supplies in the file drawer next to the old terminal by the door, if you make a mess :oP.
We’ll be upgrading our hard drive space sometime in the next two weeks, when 3 or 4 staff members can get together and party for several hours. When that is complete, we will finally be done with our year-and-a-half-long server migration. It’s been a difficult journey, but I hope those of you that use our systems enjoy the new and improved SCCS!
The big thing I need to do now is write a bunch of new LOS task requests for added features, and modify the ones that already exist, and add several to delete the stuff created by the other tasks. I’ll probably start today during my office hours.
