A new computer craze has been hitting the IT world over the last year. It’s called the Netbook.  These tiny, ultra-portable computers are attractive for those looking for inexpensive, ultra-portable computing power.  The concept appears to have evolved from the One Laptop Per Child initiative that sought to make small, portable, cheap, kid-friendly computers.


The University (through the STEP Sustainability Fund - Software Licensing) has entered into a three (3) year site license agreement with SOPHOS for the SOPHOS Endpoint Security and Data Protection product for all University of Louisiana at Lafayette students, faculty and staff.  The license negotiated this Spring, resulted from a six-month comparison, evaluation, and analysis by key University IT staff.  The software is available for the Windows, Mac, Linux, and Unix platforms.


University Computing Support Services recently announced an online, self-service, password reset tool for use by students, faculty and staff.  Upon verifying your identity by answering questions that ONLY you would know the answer, you can reset your password.

Of course, the IT Help Desk staff are always available during normal business hours to assist.  All you will need is a valid photo ID.
