Fix-It Friday Summer Hours


Contributed by Karen Sunderland

In keeping with the College’s summer hours policy the Fix-it Friday (FIF) maintenance time will be adjusted accordingly. From May 20 to August 5, the system maintenance window will be Fridays from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.

For anyone who is not familiar with FIF, it was established to provide a weekly window of time -- 4:00-8:00 p.m. each Friday during the academic year (2:00-6:00 p.m. during the summer) -- to perform necessary maintenance on computers and network systems. During this time important production systems (including e-mail, file servers, Parnassus, and others) and/or network communications may be unavailable. We will not use this time every Friday, nor will we take down all systems and the network on any given Friday.

Please check the "System Notices" section on the ITS home page ( after noon on Wednesdays for an update of services that will not be available the following Friday afternoon.

Special Intercom notices or Helpdesk-Alert list messages *may* be sent as reminder of upcoming FIF maintenance, especially in the case of downtimes for major systems or services.

Helpdesk-Alert is a low-traffic mailing list used to notify interested members of the IC community about issues that affect computer systems or networks. Subscribe at
