To improve the services we provide to students, DIT has gained approval for the following student data charges for 2011.

Through the residential communications levy, residential students will receive:

A 100 Mbps wired data service in their rooms, and access to the new high speed wireless network through all residences and other campus locations;
Unmetered traffic during the off peak period of 5pm to 8am (unmetered means no data charge during this time);10 Gigabyte monthly quota of metered traffic during peak periods of 8am to 5pm;

Non residential students will receive

Access to the new high speed wireless network across most campus locations;
Unmetered traffic during the off peak period of 5pm to 8am (unmetered means no data charge during this time);
A 1 Gigabyte  quota of metered traffic during peak periods of 8am to 5pm;
Any traffic in excess of the above quotas will be charged at $2.50 per Gigabyte.

These new data charges encourage the use of the network to improve student engagement in technology based learning activities and represent terrific value for students. These charges are a great reduction on existing charges, and significantly cheaper that comparable commercial ISP plans.  

 Staff data charges will also drop in 2011 from the existing $10 per Gigabyte to $2.50 per Gigabyte for peak period traffic (8am to 5pm), and unmetered traffic during the off peak period of 5pm to 8am.

These new data charges will take effect for the start of session 1, 2011.

PC / NVIDIA's Quadro FX 5800 with 4GB graphics memory
« on: November 11, 2008, 12:19:33 PM »
From the link:

That's some serious boasting by NVIDIA, but this is some serious graphics horsepower. The Quadro FX 5800, already seen in NVIDIA's Quadro Plex D data cruncher, replaces the 5600 at the top of the NVIDIA heap with 240 CUDA-programmable parallel cores and the industry's first card with 4GB of graphics memory. MSRP? Just $3,499 for you big spender -- pennies for the companies who can harness the power for the purposes of oil and gas exploration, 4D modeling, and graphics design.

Maya / Maya Tutorials are now available!
« on: August 12, 2008, 01:14:20 PM »
Maya Tutorials

Getting Started

The Links to the tutorials are within the folder Maya Tutorials (This will be on your desktop).  To start using the tutorials, you will need to firstly run the Enable_Tutorials.bat file.  This file resides within the Maya Tutorial folder, which is on your desktop.

This file will need to be run only once on the computer you are currently using in the lab, as the licensing is linked to computer and user.  Should you change computers you will need to run the Enable_Tutorials.bat again.

Essentially, if the tutorials ask for a license/media key, close the tutorial, run the Enable_Tutorials.bat and then run your tutorial of choice.
