congestion trying computing
the reduction in the individual daily allotment from 45 to 35
minutes, congestion of MUNs modem pool over the past two
months continues to cause some busy signals during the afternoon
staff have been investigating all possible means to either reduce
demand or increase resources in an effort to improve service
during this winter term. Increasing the size of the modem pool
was not considered to be a viable option based on the time required
to tender, purchase, install, and configure the new equipment.
The other options considered were to decrease time allotments
or reduce the number of modem hours that could be purchased.
Genge, manager of Client Support Services, said since these measures
would cause more problems for clients than the current congestion,
C&C decided to concentrate its efforts to keep all 192 current
modems functioning and deal with any problems in a prompt manner.
The long-term viability of the modem pool will be discussed in
C&C is asking that users limit their use of the modem pool
to university-related activities in order to minimize inconvenience
to other users. In keeping with the Appropriate Use of Computing
Facilities policy, please refrain from personal use of the modem
pool from noon to 1 a.m. C&C is not pursuing the implementation
of any further restraints on usage of the modem pool at this
is incumbent on all users to act responsibly with the interests
of the university community in mind, said Mr. Genge. Your
cooperation will help fellow students, faculty, and staff complete
assignments, conduct research, and carry on the business of the
