I am way wayyy wayyyyyyyyyyy backlogged... As usual, thanks for your patience.
R and RStudio seems to be causing major breakage on Nexus machines in the department. I would suggest you not run these applications until we resolve the issues. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Heartbleed bug: Check which sites have been patched
Our Dept backups and the Nexus backups are only kept for a few months at most. I really recommend to people to make permanent backups of files on all machines (offices, labs, home, laptops) at least once a term - and now is as good a time as any. If you are purchasing CDs or DVDs from a UW account, see Helen and she'll be able to order things for you. "DVD -R" discs are probably best for archiving files (longer shelf life), but +RW's will probably also do the trick. If you'd like to purchase an external harddisk, touch base with Michael or myself. Consider making two copies of critical stuff (it's not a backup unless there's two). Be sure to store them in a dark, cool, clean area and not on your window sill. Things won't last forever, so also consider recopying old discs.
