    By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Director - Academic Computing Technical Services

    Accompanying image

    By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Director - Academic Computing Technical Services

    Last month I showed faculty and staff how to take advantage of their five free copies of Microsoft Office and/or purchase (for a nominal fee) older versions of the Office Suite with a DVD copy. This month I will explore setting up home use of Adobe products on faculty and staff machines. For those of you who have not updated your Adobe products for awhile, the era of getting a big package of DVDs of the company's software for a one-time really high price (even the educational discount was pretty steep)is long gone. Adobe's most popular products (Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, Acrobat Pro) are now bundled in the "creative cloud" and users download the products and then lease them on a monthly or yearly basis. The Creative Cloud Suite contains almost 20 useful and powerful Adobe apps.

    Personnel changes in the HPC Services Team

    By Dr. Philip Baczewski, Senior Director of Academic Computing and User Services and Deputy Chief Information Officer for University Information Technology

    This Spring we've seen some major changes in personnel in the ACUS HPC Services team. HPC Services Manager, Scott Yockel, left UNT in January for a position at Harvard University. In February, Ali Siavosh-Haghighi accepted a position at the NYU Medical Center in New York City. This left two vacancies on the HPC team while at the same time, we were dealing with a major issue in March with our Lustre high-performance storage subsystem (/storage/scratch.).

    Don't Panic!

    By Claudia Lynch, Benchmarks Online Editor

    All good things must come to an end, as the saying goes, and that includes my employment at the University of North Texas. I started here on May 23, 1979 and the first issue of Benchmarks was published in January, 1980 (it wasn't online back then, I wasn't married, and UNT was called North Texas State University or NTSU). Time marches on!
