Mandatory Computer Changes - Coming Soon to Your Desktop or Laptop! Comment from abarlas on 11/01/2011
Why not just say "changes" instead of "mandatory changes?" What's with all the new authoritative language for doing small, banal, and routine things?!

The term "mandatory" was used more to capture attention than to assert
authority. In order for computers to continue to function over the new
campus network, they will need to be converted to connect properly to it. For
this reason, it is important that the campus community take note of
communication about this effort.

We're pleased to hear that you consider this migration effort "small, banal, and
routine". Many people within ITS, in conjunction with outside consulting
assistance, have worked countless hours over the past 18 months or so to
plan, test, modify, and document the process so that it would appear "small,
banal, and routine" and result in a minimal amount of inconvenience to those
whose computers are being migrated.
