A Few Tickets Remain... The 2007 Christmas in Christ Chapel celebration, the 35th annual rendition of the Gustavus tradition, will be held during the weekend of Nov. 30 through Dec. 2. The theme for this year's service is "The Word Becomes Flesh," focusing on "how the spaces within Holy Scriptures beckon poets, musicians, artists, and dancers to imagine and embody the narratives relating to the birth of Christ." Tickets are still available for the Sunday evening (Dec. 2) service; to reserve, call the Office of Marketing and Communication at x7520).
Usher for Christmas in Christ Chapel... Ushers are still needed for Christmas in Christ Chapel services (Friday, Nov. 30, 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 1, 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 2, 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.). Those who volunteer are asked to be at Christ Chapel 90 minutes before the service starts and may stay or leave after the service begins. To volunteer, contact Lorie (x7520 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dana (x7550 or email@example.com) at your earliest convenience. Don't have a ticket? Here's a good way to get in in exchange for a small service.
Symantec Scare... A small number of campus PCs running Microsoft Windows XP recently have been compromised by a virus that disables the Symantec virus protection tool and then attempts to infect other computers on the campus network. (Note: This does NOT apply to Macintosh users.) Although GTS has already removed or quarantined the infected machines, they ask that any user who has recently experienced problems with their Symantec antivirus program to contact the Technology Helpline at x6111. At present this virus is not causing significant problems on our campus and no data has been lost. GTS is taking the measures indicated above and asks users to report any unusual or recent computer problems to make sure that it remains that way. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Technology Helpline at x6111 or Bruce Aarsvold's office directly (x7020).
The Great Plate Plea... "Green Plates, Blue Plates, Yellow Plates, Orange Plates, Black Plates, White Plates!! Hear ye, Plates of any color! Come home, come home to the Market Place! Almost 400 of you have lost your way in the past 10 weeks. How will you be cleaned? How will you be stacked? How will you be reused? Please, oh please, do not make us turn to DISPOSABLES! COME HOME, PLATES, COME HOME!"

Help the Hospital Obtain a Free MRI Scanner... St. Peter Community Hospital has entered an online contest to win MRI scanning equipment (approximate cost is $1 million). You can vote daily (and if you have computers both at home and at your office or workplace, you can vote daily from both). The site is winanmri.com—scroll down to St. Peter Community Hospital and watch a 2-minute mini-movie about why we need a free MRI scanner.
Speaking of Online Contests... The City of Saint Peter has been nominated to be one of five communities named "Capital for a Day" in 2008 as part of the "MN150 Sesquicentennial" (the 150th anniversary of Minnesota's statehood). However, in order to win the designation, Saint Peter must receive enough votes through an online voting process that began on Nov. 11 and runs through Nov. 24. To see the list of nominated cities and vote for your favorites (each individual gets five votes, corresponding to the biomes, or biological communities, of the state), go to www.mn150years.org.
