Ongoing Systems Updates
Equipment Received/Installed/Repaired
  1. Net Agent is broke again. It worked for a day.
Liaisons
  1. Will is working with the liaison installation of McAfee. Firewall needs to be disabled, and then he can push it. Need to check on group policy as sometimes it is changing it back to firewall on.
Networking
  1. Joe is just about done rebuilding NT13.
  2. Public computers - plan to reconfigure went out the window. Need new plan due to Geoffrey's injury.
  3. McAfee. Firewall problems go to Will.
  4. Greenstone - Will to work on the networking, and then turn it over to Winston.
  5. BBS - Geoffrey to look at it.
  6. West computers - more money added. Now HSSS can get all of the machines they want. The question at hand is whether to order now or wait until spring. The Directors are supposed to decide. Right now, Dell is running a special where we can get a $1700 computer for $1000. Thirty for staff, thirty for public will be ordered. We are waiting to see if they want to add another 130 to the order. Should know by this week.

  2. ERES Access Services - should be in testing by this time next week.
  3. DLC Loader - it is actually in use now. DLC is submitting info. It is in beta mode.
