when Apple came out with the new Mac minis which have been installed here in the Commons, they got rid of some of the USB ports. So the USB extension cables had to be removed. CTS is looking into adapters so they can reattach the cables. In the mean time if someone can’t get their USB to work through the USB port in the side of the keyboard, plug the mouse into the keyboard and plug their USB into the computer itself.
As you have all seen printing is busy this week. Unfortunately students are printing textbooks that have been uploaded and other large jobs. Keep an eye on the baskets next to the printers. If you seem them getting messy, straighten up the papers and stack them in the basket so there aren’t papers strewn everywhere.
if not most of the computers are experiencing a problem loading the printers on the Mac side. CTS is aware and working on the problem now. Have people print from Windows. Please do not plaster signs everywhere.
This isn’t Tech related but it is easiest to get you the info. Anyone asking about tabling in the Learning Commons should be directed to the Learning Commons website on the SUNY Potsdam page: https://www.potsdam.edu/academics/resources/lougheed-learning-commons The request form is at the bottom of the page
All computers have been updated to Windows 10. Some of them have been experiencing an issue. The screen is dark blue with a slight glow to it. When you find a computer that is like this, do a hard restart and then message me with the decal number.
