A new Web site has
been established for faculty and staff members to get information about
the campus computer systems, services or networks.
The site, http://status.cso.uiuc.edu,
should be the first place to go to find out about scheduled maintenance
and problems, said Randy Cetin, associate director of UIs Computing
and Communications Services Office
"Also, theres a kind of a general announcement section for
such items as a service changing or being retired," Cetin said.
"The intention is that this is one of the many ways to get information
about CCSO-managed services and a good place to check first. For instance,
if youre trying to call CCSO when theres a problem, theres
a good chance the phone line will be busy. If youre able to check
the Web page, you may very well be able to know right away and then
have some information about when its going to be fixed."
"We hope users
find this one more way to get information about services that we manage,"
