Firefox update to ESR 31 - profile reset

As previously announced, all CLASSE computers should already be updated to ESR 31.

When you start Firefox for the first time after the update, it may claim that it hasn't been started in a while and ask if you want to reset. This is a safe and recommended procedure for cleaning your profile, and should not result in any data loss.

Project planning software

Microsoft Project 2007 is available for 10 concurrent users on winapp.classe.cornell.edu - see
Accessing Central Windows Applications from Windows
Accessing Microsoft Project
for more information.
Microsoft Excel 2007 is also available on winapp.classe.cornell.edu, since Project 2007 has trouble importing data from Excel for versions other than Excel 2007.

General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12:00 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 12:00 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.
