Network Disruption During the Long Vacation

The Oxford University Computing Service will be upgrading the University network during the Long Vacation, primarily on Tuesday mornings. There are several dates which directly affect the Oriental Institute; including two over the next couple of weeks when your humble blogger will be on holiday and unlikely to post Facebook/Twitter reminders nearer the time.

On Tuesday 26th June and Tuesday 3rd July *all* University network services will be unavailable between 0700 and 1100. SOLO, which is on a separate system and will have to be restarted manually, will be unavailable until 1130 at the latest on those days. Library staff will endeavour to allow borrowing of books using the Offline Circulation function, but access to the catalogue, email, wireless and wired networks will not be possible.

This will also be the case on the 7th August, and on September 4th, but I will post something nearer the time in both cases.

We apologise on behalf of everyone involved for the inconvenience and hope that everything will be up and running sooner than they estimate!
