relevant to your planned use, and then arrange with Peter Tripp or a lab TA
for training on the podium equipment.
- Instructions. Printed instructions, including troubleshooting tips, should be available at the podiums of both rooms. Similar instructions can be found
in the Online Guides.

computers without first checking with him. For a list of applications see the Mac User guide.
- Personal and Class Files. If you use the guest login, any files you save to the desktop will be removed. Bring a flash drive so that you can save a copy of your files, and/or login to the 200bc orange server using your own user name and password and save your files in your own folder. See the Mac User guide for more info.
- Printing. Users sometimes direct print jobs to printers in other locations, so before you print, check the print dialog box to be sure it's set at the printer you want. Please do not use the printer to make
multiple copies of documents. See these additional printing tips.

computer stations, ever. If you eat or drink elsewhere in the room,
or if you dispose of food or drink containers in the room, please clean
up after yourself and take out the garbage when you leave.

thoroughly to prevent permanent discoloration.
- Shutting Down. Remember to log yourself out, but don't turn off the Macs.
Please DO turn off the video projector, Sony receiver/amplifier,
and/or the VCR unless they will be used within the next hour.
- Lab Doors. For your own personal safety, as well as that of
the equipment, please keep the doors to 200B and 200C closed whenever
possible. Close the door securely when you leave, to be sure it locks.
