180 Magazine

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

I spoke with Melissa Lai from Fashion and she told me that they did not publish a sufficient number of 180 Magazine to give or sell to students. They are primarily published to give to industry folks looking for information on our program and students. We do have one copy behind the circ desk that students can view here in the library. They are not for sale anywhere. Melissa asks that we point students to the fashion blog if they are asking about 180 Magazine. We link to the Fashion Department blog on the Library blog. It is the first entry under the “Websites and Blogs” heading on the right hand side of the page.

One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind!

Alright, the credit card swipe on the copy card dispenser is working! The machine will dispense new cards with the swipe of a credit card and students can add value to their cards with a credit card as well! I am keeping my fingers crossed that this actually works, i.e. actually charges their credit card, and will continue to work. Currently, the copy card dispenser in the Mac Lab is not taking credit cards but it is just a matter of resetting the IP address and a few configuration changes, WE THINK, so I will work on that this afternoon or tomorrow morning and keep you abreast of developments.

zooming in and out on a mac!

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

So one of the most common problems we get with the mac is when a student accidentally rests their arm on the keyboard or something and boom, EXTREME CLOSEUP zoom.  This becomes problematic since turning the computer off doesn’t always fix it, but there is an easy fix for this.  If you ever encounter a mac computer with this issue, just hit control, options, and 8 at the same time and presto, zoomed out and normal.
