Please be aware that due to the Daylight Saving Time change, if you used your BlackBerry device to book a meeting or set up an appointment between Sunday, March 11, at 3:00 a.m. and Monday, March 12, at 11:00 a.m., these items will appear one hour later on Outlook.

Please note that the Anti-Spam Quarantine Web site (https://yourspam.mcgill.ca) will be unavailable on Thursday, March 15, 2007, from 06h00 to 06h30, due to a system upgrade. Email delivery is not affected and will continue to function.
Early this morning, Daylight Saving Time (DST) began when clocks moved ahead one hour. Microsoft Outlook users are advised to continue to pay extra attention to meetings and appointments scheduled between March 11 and April 1, 2007. Over the next three weeks, users of calendaring or other date/time-reliant software should also be conscious of potential problems caused by today's time change.
The McGill e-payment service for processing all Internet-based credit card payments, such as those associated with applications for admission to McGill or McGill-licensed software (ELMS), will be unavailable Sunday, February 25, from 5 am to 8 am. (This updates an incorrect outage announcement posted previously.)
The network problem that occurred between 12:00 and 12:05 has now been resolved. The problem was due to a crash on one of the nodes. The cause of the problem is being investigated.
Due to technical problems with one of our servers, users may have experienced problems connecting to the McGill network early this Monday afternoon, February 5, between 13h00 and 14h00. The source of the problem has been identified and resolved, and network connectivity has since been functioning normally.
Please note that during an effort to improve our anti-spam services, some users may have seen an increase in spam email in their inboxes from yesterday, January 23, at 11h00 to this morning, January 24, at 10h00. The source of the problem has been identified and resolved, and anti-spam services have since been functioning normally. McGill NCS apologizes for the inconvenience caused.
Due to technical problems on a central file server (FS1 cluster), users may have experienced problems accessing central files as well as printing today from 13h45 to 15h15. Full service has since been restored and measures are being taken to prevent similar problems from happening again. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.
When the University web portal (myMcGill) experiences short interruptions of service, you can access some services directly at the following links:
Starting November 1, 2006, Internet Explorer version 7 (IE7) will be available for download directly from Microsoft. Normally, upgrade software is distributed automatically to the McGill community by NCS via the Central McGill WSUS system. However, due to the possibility that some web-based applications do not yet support IE7, NCS does not plan to release IE7 for automatic distribution.
