ITS recently posted an Intercom story reminding users to upgrade to Thunderbird 3.0. The accompanying upgrade guide provided detailed instructions on moving to the new version. However, Thunderbird 3.1 was recently released and has different upgrade steps than version 3.0. If you haven't yet attempted the upgrade, please hold off for a short while until we release a new guide. If you've already upgraded and are encountering difficulty, please contact the Helpdesk for assistance. A new upgrade guide will be available soon!

Infants between 6 and 12 months are needed to assist us in developing a mobile robot system using a joy stick. In a session of 30 to 60 minutes, at our Ithaca campus site, the infant will be securely seated and we will try to interest the infant to reach for toys and move the robot. Parents will be present at all time and will receive $15 per session for their assistance in this project. We hope eventually to use this device with very young children who have difficulty to move independently.
Please contact Hélène Larin at 274-3116 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to participate in the project with your infant and/or obtain further information. Thank you.
