IT Announcement - 4/28/2017
Sunday Maintenance Reminder
Every Sunday from 12:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. all systems (e-mail, Banner, wireless, etc.) will be intermittently unavailable while important maintenance and updates are performed.
Weekly Maintenance – Reminder
Please log off your computer when leaving for the day every Thursday, but do not power it off. This will allow updates to be sent down to your computer on Friday after 12:00am. If you turn your computer off and leave it off overnight on Thursday, shortly after turning it back on, your computer will restart in order to install and apply any updates. If you leave your computer logged in Thursday night into Friday, you may lose any unsaved data you were working on when the computer restarts.
Clicker Technology Discussion – Friday, May 5
During the month of April we had a series of vendor demos to explore different clicker technologies. On Friday, May 5 during the ITC meeting there will be an open conversation about these demos and their features. If you use clicker technology or would like to hear more about it, please join us. The ITC meeting starts at 1:15p and is located in Vance Academic Center, room 006.

The IT Department is implementing a new anti-virus system called Cylance to replace McAfee. When we are ready to implement Cylance in your department, you will receive a separate email with more details and information. If you are interested in how Cylance works, here is a video that shows McAfee and Cylance running side-by-side. To read more about Cylance, visit https://www.cylance.com/.
Windows 10 Pilot Information
The Information Technology Department is piloting Windows 10 and the priority is to test all applications so that we can have Windows 10 installed on most student computers at the University over the summer of 2017. There are computers in the Student Technology Center (Marcus White Annex) available for testing.
If you’d like to be involved in the pilot, please respond back to this email.
