Systems Staff Meeting Notes
March 13, 2006

Present: Cynthia Bowker, Suzy Covey, Debra Fetzer, Winston Harris, Bobbie Meng, Tom Minton, Chris Nicolich, Geoffrey Stewart, Mark Sullivan, Ying Tang, Stephen Williams
Announcements
  1. Will is out sick; Bill Covey is presiding over this meeting.
  2. Spring Break this week - student are out - please answer the phones if you hear them ringing.
  3. Ongoing carpet issue: seems that UF regulations require that if they pull a carpet up from an asbestos floor, the asbestos tiles have to be removed in order to install a new carpet. Needless to say, that would cause quite a bit of disruption to the office. It wouldn't happen until June - when people should be moving back to West - in which case we could locate to vacated areas temporarily if necessary. Obviously we'd still have to access the servers.
    Per Bill, this is our last chance to get this done - at least until another Director is in place and who knows what they'd want to do.
    General consensus is 'Yes' - let's go ahead and do this while we have the chance.
    Rob Roberts is supposed to be nailing down the details involved in the tile removal so we can get a better time estimate and then when it is closer getting underway we can figure out the logistics of housing Systems staff.
Networking
  1. No new servers on order. We're actually considering bumping four: two ILLIAD and two Docutek. They'd prefer those servers to be hosted by the vendors on the Internet.
