Meeting Maker Upgrade
As of mid-July, the Meeting Maker program was upgraded to a new version. All calendar events from July 1, 2004 to July of 2006 were brought forward into the new server. The first time your Meeting Maker client connects to the new server you will get a message that your client is not compatible with the server, and it will ask if you wish to upgrade your client. Please confirm the choice to upgrade. After the upgrade, your calendar will again be available.
A new feature in the Meeting Maker 8.5 software is the web-based client. If you have trouble upgrading your desktop client or need to access your Meeting Maker calendar while you are away from the office computer, you will be able to point your web browser to https://meetingmaker.tcnj.edu/ to access your calendar over the Internet.

Web Alerts/Campus Calendar Update
Wondering what you might post as a Web Alert? Here are some suggestions:
Academic Departments & Library
Safe Email Practices
Due to increased virus activity circulating via email, Information Technology would like to remind the campus about safe email practices.
Information Technology continues to maintain virus/antispyware and other software updates on campus machines to assist in combating virus and malware activity. For more information regarding computer security, please visit the Information Technology security website. http://www.tcnj.edu/%7Eit/security/index.php
Computer Lab Access
The offices of Information Technology and Access Control are proud to announce the implementation of a new computer lab access system. Instead of using computer lab keys or "hard" keys, you will now be able to get into the computer labs using your TCNJ ID. Like the system that was implemented for the library labs, the lab doors will be locked 24/7 and faculty, staff and students can swipe in any time during the open lab hours. Lab hours can be found at http://www.tcnj.edu/~it/labs.html. Please help us secure our labs by closing the door behind you when you enter or leave.
What do I do with old printer cartridges?
During our printer upgrade projects, we often receive questions about what offices can do with unused ink/toner for the printers we're removing. If the ink/toner was purchased through Office Max, the offices can return the products directly to them. There is a "Request an order return" form on the Office Max website. Credit will be applied to the accounts based upon the shelf life of the ink/toner returned. The Office Max delivery team will also take other opened, partially used ink/toner back for recycling.
