Mitchell A59 G.R.I.D. lab closed for upgrades Oct. 5, 2015 - disks to be erased
The Mitchell A59 G.R.I.D. computer lab is maintained for individual research and creation of presentations such as posters. The lab will be closed on October 5 to do a major upgrade of the operating systems and applications on the dual-boot iMac computers. This will fix the current bug where no one can login to the Mac OS X operating system on these computers. The single computer "Mauro" was removed from the lab on September 15 to build the new system image. It will be returned on October 5 when the other computers are upgraded. All user files created on the local computer disks will be erased!
