Shut Down Computers Tuesday PM

Good Afternoon

 

On Wednesday, 11/22, there will be a planned power outage affecting most campus locations. While computers should handle the loss of power gracefully, past experience has showed us that this isn’t always the case. Please remember to shut down your desktop computer before leaving the office tomorrow afternoon – this is the best way to ensure your computer is not affected by the loss of power.

As always, if you have any issues with your computer next Monday morning when you return, please call the Service Desk at x8016.

 

Regards,
