[PSA] Graphing with Excel
Please be aware that CLASSE-IT does not recommend Microsoft Excel for scientific data analysis. It has been noted that Excel can produce inaccurate plots and graphs of spreadsheet data. Known issues of this nature are documented on this wiki page
. For alternatives to Excel for plotting/graphing, please see PlottingGraphingPackages
General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.
The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter
and via CLASSE-IT-NEWS-L
, but with the size and complexity of our network there is always the potential for something to go wrong. We will do our best to contain all network maintenance and planned outages to Tuesdays from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.
Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM
, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations
