Question & Answer Sessions


There's some manager of operations position available at UofM. (Ask Becki if she has more info.)

Free data bisualization tool in 3C?

Ask MJO what SGI recommends. Other than that, don't really know.

Dead computer bits -- want 'em?

Contact MRW -- he know's who might take them.

How about live ones?

Contact MRW -- he know's who _might_ take them. Check out FreeCycle for possibility. Also, "Craig's List."

Is anyone using Solaris 10?

Doesn't sound like it. It might be worth tinkering with, though.

LDAP authentication to AD (user/password)

Ask Chris Polk. Check the Sun Admin/Manager web site for a white paper on this.

Web browser for Palm OS that doesn't suck?

If nothing else, check out iambic-mail for pop/imap services. Steve King is using NetFront, which sucks less than blazer. Opera has a Palm browser, but it's in beta.

Content management roll tool? (What?)

Try looking for "content management promotion" as an alternative term for the action.
