Michael, Prath and myself will be at a training session Wednesday and Thursday orning from 9:00am-11:00am. As usual, send IT requests to
An electrical power shutdown is scheduled for about half of PAS on Saturday July 29 7am-9am. Because the network will be unavailable in the entire building during this time, we'll want to shutdown ALL machines in PAS (even in unaffected areas) on Friday evening. We'll send an email with additional details as the date approaches.
The upgrade of Nexus machines to Windows 10 is almost complete.

If you have other UW-owned non-Nexus PCs, laptops, home machines which you would like upgraded to Win10, send a note to and we'll get them on our schedule. The Education/Enterprise license for Windows 7 that UW has doesn't provide an Upgrade button, so it's a wipe the drive and re-install process. For this reason, ensure you have a copy of all your files before you leave the machine with us.

Hey Roxane, James, Myra, Dan, and Evan!!! Renew or purchase your Matlab user licenses. Licenses are for the calendar year with a grace period extending into the following April. If you are attempting to run Matlab on non-Nexus PCs, keep in mind about Renaming User IDs. Note to self: for users to set their own path, copy "C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2014b\toolbox\loca\pathdef.m" to the user's Documents\MATLAB folder and double-click on it to start Matlab once. Subsequent times Matlab can be started in any way as it will use the last loaded path location.
