Blog from August, 2013

Beginning October 1, Software Center on your Windows computer will offer to install Microsoft Office 2013. Office is the first program CIT will distribute to campus Windows computers via Software Center.

Shortly after we make Office available, you may see this bubble pop up on your computer. When the bubble appears, you can click on it to see what new software is available to you.

If you would rather install Office at a later time, you can run Software Center from the start menu. Navigate to Start Menu -> Microsoft System Center 2012 -> Configuration Manager -> Software Center. The software center will show you all of the software that is currently available to you.
Please contact the CIT HelpDesk at 585-245-5588 if you have any questions about Software Center or installing college-licensed software on your computer.

When CIT receives reports of widely delivered malicious email, we will Tweet or post a status message. You can also help us protect our inboxes by marking the malicious email as spam or reporting it as phishing.


To report the message as spam in Gmail, click on the Spam button. 
To report phishing in Gmail, click the drop-down arrow next to “Reply” and select “Report phishing.” Reporting a message as phishing will prevent that user from sending you more emails.

Most importantly, never reply to suspicious emails, tweets, or posts with your personal or financial information. Also, don’t fill out forms or sign-in screens that link from these messages.

The ArcGIS GeoEvent Processor for Server has been added to Educational Site Licenses at no additional charge. The extension will be added to Geneseo lab computers in September.

The GeoEvent Processor allows you to connect with virtually any type of streaming data and automatically alert personnel when specified conditions occur—all in real time decision applications, helping you respond faster and with remarkable accuracy whenever and wherever change happens.  With this extension, you can connect to sensors, process and filter real-time data, and monitor assets such as vehicles, aircraft or vessels.

For more information about how you can connect your streaming data to ArcGIS, please visit Esri’s GeoEvent Processor product page along with these other resources:
