The departmental servers coxeter, sphere, and the mail, web, and blog/wiki servers will have a few software updates applied during Wednesday afternoon (December 15, 2010) which at the moment do NOT require rebooting (that may change if additional updates appear by that day). Since the updates will be applied while the servers are still up there may be some temporary issues with some software (for example, we have already updated the important firefox, thunderbird, and acroread software). We hope that any issues will be minor and by doing the upgrading without bringing systems down that will be worth the potential minor problems. Please restart any programs if you observe problems during the upgrades (and please let us know so we can investigate).

There is a UofT network outage scheduled for the early morning (from 2am to 7am)  on Wednesday December 1, 2010 for the University’s primary Internet connection.  The outage should last less than 2 hours during that time period and there will be one or more brief interruptions in internet connectivity.

The departmental servers all appear to be working fine after the updates.

The departmental servers coxeter, sphere, and the mail, web, and blog/wiki servers will have a few software updates applied during Wednesday afternoon (November 17, 2010) which will require rebooting. Since some updates will be applied while the servers are still up there may be some temporary issues with some software. We hope that any issues will be minor and by doing most of the upgrading without bringing systems down the shorter downtime will be worth the potential minor problems. Please restart any programs if you observe problems during the upgrades (and please let us know so we can investigate). We expect the systems to be back to be back up by 5pm.

There have been some changes made to the computers in BA6200.  All the monitors in there are now LCD panels (as opposed to the large CRT monitors that were in that room).  The various computers in there are being upgraded and we hope that soon all the machines in that room will be working more consistently.  As always, please send email to requests@math.toronto.edu if you notice problems with the machines in that room.

Cogeco will be repairing damaged fibre cables that are the primary Internet connection for the UofT network during the early morning (from 00:01 to 06:00) on Sunday October 24, 2010.  There will be multiple network slowdowns, re-connects, and perhaps outages during that time.
