Ongoing Systems Updates
Equipment Received/Installed/Repaired
  1. Orders- little stuff going out.
  2. Nothing major broken.
  1. Public workstation security revamp- word has not gone out yet that this is an open roll. People do not want to revamp and reinstall.
  1. Will has put together a services list by server. The list itemizes which services are on installed on each server. We'll keep a copy of the list in the server room, the vault and MSL.
  2. ALEPH printing - meeting rescheduled for tomorrow 9AM in Carol Turner's office.
Software Projects Status
  1. HootErp hoo-haw - two meetings regarding Resource Services' problems with ALEPH and ordering. Double entries in ALEPH and PeopleSoft are occurring. Specs were omitted. The revamp produced a chart last Friday, but a field was left out. Info can't be dragged out of ALEPH and put into PeopleSoft. FCLA will have to do it. Typos that enter a valid account number will be charged- there's no real checks and balances. Not an ideal situation.
  2. DLC Tracker- ongoing, Ying continues to work on it. Demo project software may be helpful if it is compatible with Visual Studio.
  3. Code review on St. Nicholas this AM. Ying helping with CSharp. Books have not yet been received.
Web Projects
  1. Main permission groups settled in Resource Services.
  2. Plodding along with templates.
Student and Department Happenings
  1. PeopleSoft time reporting/approving: floating entries, negative time, no way to delete a negative entry.
