Now available: the October quarterly roundup of Computing Service news.
Items that caught my eye are:
- PWFweb: Personal Web Pages on the PWF – ‘the Computing Service will from now on create, in each new personal filespace, a public_html directory and a default index page along with a simple stylesheet…’
- Computing Service announcements now available on Twitter – ‘Headlines from announcements made by the Computing Service are now available via the micro-blogging site Twitter. Follow UcamCS or see http://twitter.com/UcamCS.’ They recently tweeted: “PWF slowness now cured”…
- Phishing – they want your account details – ‘Over the weekend [this was back in August] a depressingly large number of people, from undergraduates to senior academics, fell for a phishing message and gave away their email details (username, password, full email address, full name).’ Please be very careful.
