Slow or unresponsive database connections when using Crystal Reports 11 corrected in system-wide fix
Time-outs and slow responses when accessing 10g databases with Crystal Reports have been eliminated. There is no need to maintain ODBC connections as a data source. Furthermore, it is now recommended that only native Oracle connections be used for Crystal Reports, i.e., New Reports > Standard Report Creation Wizard, then expand Create New Connection and select "Oracle Server."
We are currently experiencing a problem with WebCT Vista. We will update you when information is available.
The Exchange server is unavailable at this time. We will post more information when it becomes available.
Anti-Spam Quarantine Digest: Email addresses ending in @mcgill.ca will be subscribed on Friday, March 14
As you may know, beginning on February 20, 2008 McGill staff email addresses ending in @mcgill.ca were automatically opted into the McGill Anti-Spam Quarantine system (with the exception of those who had already opted out intentionally). However, subscription to the Quarantine Digest was not done at that time. Faculty and staff who were automatically opted-in will now also be subscribed to receive the digest email on Friday, March 14. The digest email will be delivered once a day, only if messages have been quarantined since the last digest.

On Saturday, February 10, Minerva and Internet Native Banner (INB) could require more time than usual to perform some tasks. For instance, queries you submit could take longer to return data. McGill administrative systems expect to face slower response times between 9 am and 9 pm due to scheduled maintenance procedures.
