Mozilla

May 3rd, 2006 by Admin

Hi Guys,

I tried loading Mozilla on my computer in my office. Just for testing purposely. And I keep getting these messages. Any clues. It loaded fine, but I could not launch. Please check out the visual on attached file.

Allie,

I looked up Websense, and it’s censorware (an internet access control system) that is often installed by businesses. Do you have administrative privileges for your work computer? If not, I’m thinking Websense is causing your problems. Websense is completely unaffiliated with the Mozilla suite. I googled “how to bypass websense” and there seemed to be a good amount of sites. However, it might be better to talk to whoever installed Websense in the first place, because maybe they can help you out.

XP Software Updates

April 15th, 2006 by Admin

Hello to All ,

I have just received the Software licensing for XP. I will mailed today UPS Red. The mail should include the Xp Licensing and the Alcohol Software.

After further discussions, Tim and I decided not use the print server equipment. We will use our existing printer.

The Norton Virus Scan software is scheduled to be delivered to our address on 04/11/06. I will ship Ups Red along with the drivers for the HP LaserJet printer on Wednesday and it should arrive by Thursday.

Could you please verify the size of memory on the server. I am thinking we may need to purchase more memory to ensure the system performance.

Does the upgrade include monitors.
Mouse, keyboards.
Will you be using our existing network cabling?
Are you having any luck with finding software that will track students performance. Somewhat like a progress report.
Do you guys have any experience with ISDN lines? If, so please have someone call me. (314-443-5499)
If, you have any questions, please feel free to call me.

Thanks,
Allie

Response

Dear Allie,
I will forward this to my group members and we can email the answers tomorrow when we are all together too. Thank you for the update!

Response

hi Allie,
The server memory is 200gb. Let us know if you want us to add more memory.

Response

You said the memory was 200g. You mean the harddrive is 200gb. What size is the memory.?

Response

hi Allie,
Oops, yes, the harddrive is 200gb. We will check tomorrow during our lab and email you. We have lab from 3-5pm.

Response

The key is attached to the following file attachment. The name of the Hp printer is hp laserjet 1012. Allie

Phone Conversations

April 15th, 2006 by Admin

April 4th – called Allie to inquire about the XP and Alcohol software programs. Allie reported they had ordered XP. Allie will send XP and Alcohol to us via FEDEX. Allie agreed with our list of priorities we emailed too. We will research the HP Print Driver.

April 15th – We talked with Allie on Saturday morning to request the XP Product key information. She emailed us the key info. She also let us know that their router is Belkin. We emailed to find the model and speed information. Timothy will measure and send us the measurements for the cables too. We also reported the RAM size in the server. We agreed to add more memory hopefully up to 384. We confirmed that the keyboards, mouse, and monitor are included with each computer we are bringing. We also reported that the “student tracking” software was just o.k.

Delivery Change

April 12th, 2006 by Admin

Hi Guys,

We will load the Virus Scan Software on a later date, so you will not be receiving any Ups delivery from us on Thursday.

Response (interagroup)

Have you emailed Mt.Calvary with the server info. and the answers to the following questions they asked in an earlier email?

Does the upgrade include monitors.
Mouse, keyboards.
Will you be using our existing network cabling?
Are you having any luck with finding software that will track students performance. Somewhat like a progress report.
Do you guys have any experience with ISDN lines? If, so please have someone call me. (314-443-5499)
For the server, the RAM is 128 MB. I think the upgrade includes monitors, mice, and keyboards. We will be using their network cabling, although we might need to replace some of it. I had no idea that they wanted student performance tracking software, since they didn’t say this during the initial meeting. I looked some up and posted them under our Wiki in a new child page. (It also has a few other apps). Also, if Allie needed more information on ISDN lines, she should probably contact Martin, since I don’t think any of us know ISDN info.
