Wireless network changes (IMPORTANT)

Campus wireless networks are changing to enhance both security and ease of use for campus guests. This may require you to reconnect devices to the wireless before the dates below to ensure reliable usage. There are two new wireless networks available NOW that you should begin using before the old ones are turned off. “Messiah Secure” – Employees and students should use this network to ensure access to everything you need using encrypted communications. Most Windows-based computers owned by the College should automatically use this network but some may not be automatic so please check. Mac computers and mobile devices will NOT automatically change. Information on how to connect Windows, Chromebook, MacOS, iOS and Android devices are in the following blog article: http://blogs.messiah.edu/its/question/connecting-to-messiahs-wireless-network. “Messiah Guest” – Intended for guests to campus who only need basic internet access. It will require checking a box to agree to Messiah policies every 24 hours. It cannot be used to access college resources such as Canvas, self-service, Banner, Unimarket, etc. If college services are needed, connect to Messiah Secure instead. The two networks above are replacing MC-WPA and MC-Open which will be no longer be available following this schedule: Monday, Aug. 13.

MC-Open removed from entire campus

MC-WPA removed from residence halls only

Monday, Sept. 17

Windows 10 update required

This is for employees that currently have Windows 10 (Windows 10 has a white flag in the bottom left corner.) Because Microsoft is now doing Windows 10 updates every 12 to 18 months, we need to do what they call a Feature 10 Update, which is a lot bigger than a normal Windows update.

How do you know if you need this update? After determining that you have Windows 10, you will go to the Start button, then select Settings (little gear icon) > System > About. If the version is NOT 1803, you will need to run this update. We will have this Feature update available in Microsoft Software Center for you to install starting today and going through Aug. 6. On Aug. 7, this Feature Update will install on your machine automatically, if you have not done so already. Once it is done installing, it will ask you to restart, or it may restart your machine automatically. During the installation, you may continue to work on your machine. After restarting, you may have a 15 to 30 minute time period that you will be unable to do any work on your machine. You may see your machine restart multiple times and will know when it is done, when it comes back to the login screen. After you login, it will run through several screens saying it is setting up Windows for you. This may take approximately five minutes. After that is done, you should be good to go. We recommend you do this Feature 10 Update while on campus with a wired network connection. If you are unable complete this update while on campus, you may connect to OpenVPN and run the install that way, but it will take considerably longer to do so. For more details on this installation process go to this ITS Blog post: http://blogs.messiah.edu/its/archives/9348 Please remember to check the computers assigned to student employees.

Green chemistry

As part of the Chemistry/Biochemistry Department’s efforts to promote “Green Chemistry” and enhance safety, the department has just upgraded its system for DNA and protein gel analysis to one that uses stain free gels. Biochemists use gels to separate mixtures of protein or DNA fragments and identify them. However, these molecules are colorless and a system of staining and destaining has typically been needed for observing the gels. The upgrades to the “EZ DOC” system will reduce the exposure to hazardous chemicals used in the process. In addition, it will lower the amount of hazardous chemical waste generated by several pounds per year. While that number does not seem very large, the lowered cost of the disposal is estimated to offset the procurement cost of the upgrade in just two to three years. In addition to this, the department continues to “green” its working space by eliminating old and unused chemicals. The department has reduced its chemical stocks by 63% in the past nine years.
