Lab Macs: Software Requests due July 1, 2014

in
For the 2014 Fall semester we are reviewing all currently installed Mac Lab applications and removing those that are outdated or have low usage rates. This review process is conducted every summer when upgrading applications and operating systems in all Mac lab locations.
 
Therefore, all software requests must be submitted by July 1, 2014 to ensure the software is available in time for the start of the 2014 Fall semester.

Windows Roaming Profile Size increased to 100MB

In order to improve the end user experience for CLM Windows Lab Machines, Classroom and Lab Computing has increased the roaming profile size from 60MB to 100MB. This should allow users more flexibility in using lab applications for classwork. 

Chrome and Firefox Bookmark Files Being Backed Up

Chrome and Firefox bookmark files, stored in your roaming profile, are being backed up daily (around 3:30am) to your UDrive space in case you have to clear your roaming profile.   You will see a V:\Backup\Bookmarks folder of you have such a backup.  IE Favorites are redirected to your "Home Folder" which is PASS or UDrive, and won't disappear if a roaming profile is cleared.

A new version of "PSU Alerts" that will restore such a file should be out this week.

We have made WebApps our production remote application service after a very successful pilot.  We have also added SAS JMP to the list of applications offered.
