Technology Report

S.A.P. Daily Tasks

  • Since May 15, we completed 428 notifications. An unexpected fire at Malcolm Munroe resulted in the replacement of a few computers and much testing on remaining equipment. We also upgraded the memory in the main floor lab at Malcolm Munroe.
  • We also installed 33 new Windows-based computers and 10 MacIntosh-based computers.
  • We are presently planning our summer projects.

Internet Connectivity

  • Eastlink installs are ongoing with some infrastructure and configuration difficulties. We have two schools on the Eastlink circuits. On average, they are receiving six times the bandwidth than in the past. We have eight more schools ready for the transition and will be converted when we receive final configuration files from D.O.E

C.F.S.

  • Since May 15, Computers for Schools installed 12 computers in our School Board. These computers were upgrading obsolete equipment
  • Computers for Schools donated over 200 computers to the Nigeria Project.
