Maintenance and upgrades

As you’ve likely noticed, we’ve been through a fair amount of downtime in the past few weeks. We’re doing major system maintenance and upgrades that are leading to a faster, more stable, and more secure network.

We’re also dropping some old services that are unused or insecure. If you find anything that you used missing, please let us know – we’ll be happy to get it working for you.

News from the Game Pit

Hi Everybody!

We are excited to announce that we have two new additions to the game pit: A PlayStation 4 and a cool new LED Lighting System! Both are in the pit now for your enjoyment and convenience.

The PS4 is our first step into the next-generation console realm and brings many new advantages such as diskless games. This means that once we install a game both you and us don’t have to worry about the disk breaking or getting lost!

We will be installing games over the rest of the semester as they come out and our budget allows.

The LED Lighting System will provide just enough ambient illumination to be able to see what you’re doing without disturbing the picture on the screen. You can switch the lights on or off using the big white button next to the console controllers.

As always, feel free to contact us with questions or comments at!
