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!"

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.
