the beeHive
I'm on vacation until Tuesday September 2nd...
see ya, 

Our new coops this term are Mason Rathahao and Roy Zou. Please be gentle with them.
If any machines need to be relocated, please touch base with Michael or myself. We need to configure things in the wiring closets before they are connected and we also have to update our DB of equipment location.

HP Notebook PC AC Power Cord Safety Recall and Replacement Program - if you have an HP laptop, check if you laptop power cord is marked with "LS-15". If so, you'll get a free replacement.
Blacklisting of campus email servers. Some organizations may not receive UW emails... UPDATE THURSDAY MORNING - THIS HAS BEEN RESOLVED.
IST will be enabling an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) on the Eduroam wireless network as a production trial, leading to a permanent implementation.

The policy will be enabled on August 18 and removed on August 29. If no major issues are experienced during this period, the policy will be permanently implemented in October (with further communication).

The University is required to have an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) on the wireless network. The production trial has been scheduled to reduce impact.

The policy will need to be accepted on every device connected to eduroam once every 120 days. While connected to eduroam, the policy will intercept browser traffic (http only) on devices that have not accepted it and redirect to a page with the terms & conditions. Once the policy has been accepted, it will not prompt the device for 120 days. The policy will be integrated into the splash pages of uw-unsecured and uw-guest, causing no other impact to those wireless networks.
