Over the summer iTAC will be upgrading the K-State InfoCommons, university computing labs, studio classrooms, and technology classrooms. One of the improvements is to move all the PCs to the Windows 7 operating system. We are currently building these images and doing extensive testing to ensure that programs will still work correctly. If you have any software requests for the Fall 2010 computer image, e-mail email@example.com.
During winter break, the Information Technology Assistance Center will be replacing all of the PCs located on the first, second, and third floors of the K-State InfoCommons in Hale Library. The new Dell machines will feature a 20-inch wide-screen monitor as well as memory and processor upgrades.
A test machine will be placed near the IT Help Desk in the near future, so users can come by and check out the image before it’s deployed throughout the rest of the environment.

After I swipe my card to print on campus, a message pops up saying that my “User ID identifies more than one user on the pharos database”. It won’t let me print anything. What does this error mean, and how can I print?
That error occurs when your ISO number (which is the number associated with your Wildcat ID Card) is incorrectly programmed in the printing system for the K-State InfoCommons and university computing labs. This can happen in various ways — letting someone borrow your card to print, getting a replacement card, or several other reasons.
Contact the IT Help Desk (214 Hale Library, 785-532-7722) to provide information to get your Wildcat ID card working properly with the system.
