All PC Plan machines have been installed. The remaining 10 swaps will be done in the next month or so. $109,000 has been allocated for the next phase of the PC Plan, and 35 pcs have already been ordered. Roughly 45 additional machines will be ordered in July or August. 33 of these estimated 80 machines are earmarked to be distributed throughout RULS. The remainder are to go to the SCC's classroom. Ann Butman's scenario for these two orders is for the first to be distributed to RULS (withholding two for SCC) and for the later order to go solely to SCC. SCC would still be short five machines, however. Implications of this were discussed and will be revisited.
John emailed Grace with the Group's revision of the Current Support document, but has not heard back from her. He will contact her again.
Darryl is working on making email a functional option from the microfilm scanners and will supply documentation on the procedure. Darryl also reported that public network printing is not possible from wireless set ups due to the parameters of LPT1.
Ariel and ILL Manager were discussed.
The possibility of adding text-based email program Putty to the public machines as an alternative to the somewhat unpopular Webmail with the next imaging was discussed. Putty's commands differ from Ewan and do not allow for cut and paste.
The next meeting is scheduled for May 20. As usual, on Tuesday, 10AM in the TSB Conference Room.
