Remaining Tape Media in Computer Room to be Returned to Owners
SSCC Summer Training Schedule
New Organization for SSCC Publications on the Web
New/Revised SSCC Publications
SSCC's desktop support policy has been updated to more accurately describe the services we provide and to broaden the scope of the policy to include Linux and Mac desktops. It also now describes services we provide for home networks and broadband connections. Please take a few minutes to review this policy.
SSCC staff are in the process of boxing up the remaining 3480 cartridges, worm platters, and 9-track tapes that are in the Computer Room and will be returning them to their owners within the next month. Tapes owners will be contacted to arrange a time for taking delivery of their tapes. Once this project is completed, SSCC's PC repair operations will be relocated from 2416 to the Computer Room.
The self-serve "tapestation" which has been in the I/O Room (4411A) since VMS was being phased out in 1998 is still alive and well. You can use it to read and copy 9-track, 3480, and 8mm tapes created on VMS systems in the past. We plan to keep this equipment as long as it is needed and is in repairable condition. Please see Charlie Fiss in the CDE Data Library if you need assistance with the tapestation.
All SSCC training sessions require preregistration. If less than three people have preregistered for a course one week prior to its start date, the class may be canceled. Click here to register for a session(s). You will be reminded about your preregistration through e-mail a day or two before the class begins.
