CLASSE Managed Windows Computers PDF Package upgrade during normal updates tonight.

We are upgrading the PDF-X-Change Editor software to 5.5. This will close open PDF-X-Change Editor windows to complete the upgrade.

New Quickstart Guide

To help new users get started with CLASSE computing, we have developed a quickstart guide here: https://wiki.classe.cornell.edu/Computing/CLASSEQuickstartGuide2014. Please help us publicize this link, and let us know of any improvements that could be made.

Newman 120 Macintosh

The Macintosh (mc234) in the Newman public terminal room (Newman 120) has been joined the the CLASSE domain. Use your CLASSE credentials to log in there. The first time you log in, you will be asked whether or not you want to create a mobile user; push the "Yes"button. Note that your first log in will take more time than following logins.

RedRover Secure retiring on July 15

On July 15, CIT will discontinue the RedRover Secure wireless service, in favor of eduroam, which is a secure service that can also be used at other participating institutions. Regular RedRover (not secure) will remain in place. For more information, see http://itnews.cornell.edu/2014/05/27/help-get-the-message-out-redrover-secure-retiring-on-july-15/.

Wiki Tags

All CLASSE wiki pages now support tags. Anyone with edit access to a page can add tags as desired. Backend documentation for the plugin, including an example of how to create a tag cloud of your web in a page, please see TagMePlugin.

Reporting Red Rover problems

If you are experiencing issues with CIT's RedRover or eduroam wireless networks, please



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.
