Downtime this weekend

December 12th, 2008

Over the next weekend (Saturday through Monday), we will be rebooting machines and performing some maintenance, during which some services will be down.  We don’t expect any single outage to last more than an hour or so.

UGCS Meeting

October 29th, 2008

We will have a UGCS sysadmin meeting this Sunday, November 2, at 5pm in the UGCS lab.  Despite its name, it is open to all who are interested in UGCS.  We will discuss our plans for the upcoming year, including hardware purchases, lab improvements, and new features.  Come if you have thoughts, want to know what’s going to happen, or just want to meet your sysadmins.

Welcome to the UGCS Blog

October 18th, 2008

Welcome to the UGCS Blog!  We, the UGCS sysadmins, have started this blog as a way to better publicize the various things that are going on.  Among other things, we hope to post quick how-to’s, new features, little-known old features, sysadmin tricks, downtimes, outages, and anything else that comes to mind.

Let us know if you have any questions or comments.
