Since we opened last April, some of the computers in here have gotten a little…quirky, and not all of them work as well as they should. This sort of thing just happens over time, and there’s not much we can do to prevent it. So now we’re in the process of reimaging all of the Macs in the lab. This basically means we’re erasing everything on them and replacing it with a fresh copy of all of the software, which should make things run much more smoothly again.
As always, be sure you’re not saving your files on the local computers when you leave, because there’s no guarantee they’ll be there when you return. If you’re working on a project in the lab that you can’t finish in one session, you can burn it to a CD or DVD, save it to your own portable hard drive, USB flash drive, or laptop, or we can save it for you temporarily on our network storage drive. Just ask the lab consultant on duty if you need help.
