the beeHive
Some maintenance is being done on artsweb on Monday morning 8-8:30am. Web studies housed on artsweb will not be available at that time.
SPSS for 2015 will be $165/machine/year and AMOS will be $110/machine/year. At some point in the next few weeks, I'll script something to send an email to faculty members indicating the machines they purchased SPSS licenses for in 2014 and asking which machines licenses should be purchased for in 2015. They will need to respond to that with an account# to charge.

It's much easier and much much less time consuming if we can do licensing all at once at the start of the year rather than deal with individual licensing for each install, so if folks can plan ahead, it's much appreciated.

Boredom in the modern world: It's much more than a yawn - James Danckert comments
A few people have been getting automated emails from IST indicating "Incorrect eduroam Wi-Fi settings detected on your device". Yes, it's a valid message.

If the message indicates the device must be configured to use 'User authentication' only, no harm following the instructions they provide, but a quicker/easier solution may simply be to select 'User authentication' at Step 10 here.
