Possible Internet Outages, tomorrow, 10/28

On Friday, October 28, 2011 Level 3 Communications will implement maintenance to migrate circuits to a new path so as to decommission older equipment.   Level 3 is the primary ISP that DeSales utilizes to gain access to the Internet.   The hours of maintenance will be from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.   Level 3 wants its customers to be aware that some customers may lose Internet service, but for no more than 15 minutes during the window of maintenance.
In the event that DeSales does lose the connection for the Internet service with Level 3, we do have a secondary ISP that is currently being utilized.   However, during an outage, users may see degradation in performance and response times using only one ISP.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Halloween Brown Bag Lunch today, 10/26

Dr. Katherine Ramsland presents:  “Paranormal Forensics:  Investigating the Haunted Crime Scene.”
