The Mystery of Sound...Solved!

Perhaps this has only been a mystery for me, but if not...

At times a student will be trying to listen to a DVD/CD on a computer using headphones and there will inexplicably be no sound, although all volume is turned on. Try closing the program and starting it up again. It seems the headphones need to be plugged in and the sound turned on BEFORE starting the DVD/CD in order for the sound to work. If you start the DVD, then turn on the sound, it will not work.

Wireless Access on Campus

The Wireless Agreement Form is now available online for students, faculty and staff at This is also linked from the Technology Services webpage (in the A-Z list on college website), select Wireless Access from the menu on the left of the screen. After completing the form, users will receive an email in their Lion Mail/campus email in 24-48 hours with the network login. Apparently there is still no immediate access to the wireless network. There are also no printers on the network.
