Monthly backups will be carried out on a number of the School's systems in Hobart and Launceston this weekend, from 10pm Saturday April 4 until around noon Sunday April 5.
This will affect the School's Unix hosts alacritas, lawson and leven. Logins in ICT Windows labs will be unavailable during this downtime.

UPDATE: This is now cancelled.
There will be a power outage this Saturday morning (March 28) from 7:00am until around 9:00am as part of the building refurbishment that is happening in the other wing of the Centenary building.
As a result, all ICT servers based in Hobart will be shut down at around 6:30am and restarted around 9:15am. (This includes the student servers huntley and alacritas). During the outage, lab computers will be shut down, lab logins will not work, and local WiFi services will be offline.
The University of Tasmania has a proud history of competing in the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM ICPC), the world's premier university-level programming competition, in which teams of three students, with only one terminal per team, try to solve as many programming problems as quickly as possible.
In April 2009 one of our teams went to Sweden to compete in the World Finals. The team was invited to the World Finals on the basis of their performance in the previous year's annual South Pacific (Aus/NZ) Regional event. (The 100 teams in the 2009 World Finals were chosen from over 7000 teams who competed in regional events in almost 90 countries.) The University is one of only two Aus/NZ universities to have finished in the top three in three out of the past seven regional events. Last year, in a new two-tier competition format, one of our teams progressed to the South Pacific Regional Finals, held at UNSW in Sydney.
Some students have already been invited (on the basis of past performance, or results in relevant units) to be part of the School's group that is preparing for this year's Regional, and from which the teams entered at School expense will be chosen. Students who have not been invited, but are interested in joining the group, are being offered an opportunity to qualify to join. If you want to know more, look at the info page
