Winding down for the week…the lab is quiet. Maybe only about twelve students all told, all working on individual projects. Time to consider this week and plan for the next.
Keeping all of the computers in good operational status is very difficult. We almost constantly have students downloading software or files (even though they should be blocked from these functions when they are logged in as anonymous lab users). Does anyone else find computer security to be a particular challenge? It is turning some of our equipment into non-functioning electronic bricks far before its time.
