   Security/Software Updates (Linux reboots)

[1]Compute nodes as well as desktop machines WILL BE REBOOTED on Wednesday
(January 15th).  Rolling updates will be applied to machines between 8:00pm and
midnight. In an effort to try and minimize any corrupted files or lost work,
please save all your data and logout of any linux systems before 8:00pm. Many of
the updates have already been made on several linux machines in the computer lab
located in WWH 229. We urge people to test any packages that are critical to
their work and let us know if they encounter any problems before the updates
occur. The machines that have been updated are:

     * pubbox44.cims.nyu.edu
     * pubbox16.cims.nyu.edu
