On Monday it was pointed out to me that despite having Adobe Creative Suite 5 (purchased last semester) we had yet to roll it out in the labs.  (This delay was intentional so as not to adversely affect in-progress CS3-based curriculum.)  Yesterday I “flipped the switch” and this morning at 6:00 the Lab computers dutifully came on and got the signal to dump CS3 and download CS5.  The unfortunate (and unforeseen by yours truly) consequence of this was that being several Gigabytes in size, 2 hours later it was STILL DOWNLOADING on every computer on campus.

Responding to a report from the Library, I killed the download server allowing all computers to be used.  The downside of this is that Creative Suite 5 is most likely USELESS.  I am ensuring for its availability in the Kellas 100 classroom where I know classes make use of it.  Creative Suite 5 will, hopefully, be “everywhere” tomorrow!!

I apologize for the inconvenience.
