K. Au, S. Bartz, M. Belasco, A. Butman, B. Golon, S. Jackson, P. Johnson, K. Kuehl, J. Maxymuk, K. McGuire M. Medeiros, A. Ruggiero, R. Sandler and C. Singh.

1. Systems Update

Timetrak's Password Manager software has been added to the computers of all users who let the Budget Office know that they could not change their passwords.

The Daylight Savings Time patch for WinXP sp2 was sent out last week in the updates. There will be a patch to be manually run on all Win2k machines in the PCWG folder with a document and zip file. Dave Hoover is handling all patching on Unix servers

New installs have been slowed by the public machines reimaging and migration to private address space. This work should be done in the next 10 days barring any calamities.

Systems will begin moving e-class machines to private address space in late spring and fac/staff machines in late spring through summer. All but the servers and the Ariel machines will hopefully be done by the end of the year.

2. Office 2007 Migration

Because of the many differences in this version of Office and incompatibilities with previous versions training will be necessary. Anne met with Marilyn Wilt about this. Marilyn is trying to get a trainer from the CAT to train UCS' and PC Coordinators around June, and then we would form a training team for the units over the summer. UCS', coordinators and a few faculty members will have the software installed in late March so they can be well aquainted with the software and are better prepared for the training.

3. Ticket System Inventory

The Ticket System will be adjusted so that items that are inventoried for auditing puposes only will be read-only.

4. Security Info Session

Shevon and Matthew discussed the basic material they will cover in their upcoming training sessions on pc security.

5. Public Machine Authentication

In light of Public Services adding to their agenda the request by the Douglass Library to have authentication software installed on some of their machines, we discussed the matter. There were strong feelings on both sides of the issue, and the only consensus reached was that this is technologically possible, but largely an administrative issue.

6. Old/New Business

Rich and Andrew have looked into one-to-one videoconferencing for possible use at a reference terminal. There are address space questions for machines doing this.

Matthew reported that the teleconference naming convention standardization project is completed. Both Bookroom and the Staff Resources Web Page have been updated with any changes.

7. Future Meeting Dates

The next meeting is scheduled on March 20 at 10AM in the TSB Conference Room.
