the beeHive
Department of Psychology Colloquium Series


Dr. Tania Lombrozo

Explanation: The Good, The Bad, and The Beautiful

January 30, 2015
Hagey Hall 1106

Reception to follow in PAS Lounge

I'm wayyy backlogged at the moment. If you are waiting for something, thanks for your patience.
On Saturday January 31 7-8am IST will be performing maintenance on the netapp servers which houses the Nexus N: drives (My Documents and Desktop) and also the Psych file shares (e.g., the various psych-lab-* locations). As usual, be sure to logout when you leave on Friday, but leave your machines turned on. Late Friday I'll run something to force logouts in case anyone forgot. Avoid logging in until after 8am Saturday morning.
There was a problem with the SharePoint server late on January 28. SharePoint will be unavailable until about 10:30am this morning, Jan 29. IST is restoring things from a backup so any changes made on SharePoint between 8pm Jan 28 and 9:00am Jan 29 will have been lost.

IST had to restore individuals' personal MySharePoint contents from backup. Things saved between noon Jan 27 and 4pm Jan 29 will not appear on the site, but it may be possible to recover specific contents from that time from additional backups if needed.

Notes for Office 2013 Upgrade.
A few Mac users around here have been bumping up against this: Wi-Fi issues continue to hamper OS X users despite updates
If you have RAs coming/going from your labs, please check the Nexus Security Groups Lists and send me updates for the userids which should be allowed access to your printers and network shares. Send both their full name and UWuserid (not student id#).
