Thursday August 14:  At 10am the athena.dialup.mit.edu servers were upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04 ("Trusty").  Existing connections were unaffected, but any connections after 10:00AM were redirected to the new servers.  Besides the upgrade to the underlying operating syste, the biggest change will be that Kerberized FTP (AKA, kftp, GSSAPI FTP) will no longer be supported.  For more information about Kerberized FTP, please see http://kb.mit.edu/confluence/x/oXcYCQ

At around 10AM on August 18, the Libraries moved a new home page for our web site (http://libraries.mit.edu ) into production.  If you don't see the new homepage, or if things look a little funky, try pressing the shift button while you hit refresh on your browser. We have flushed the cache of our site on the server, but individual browsers can cache pages and must be manually refreshed.

If something appears not to be working properly, or if you care to send us some feedback, please use the "Tell Us" form (MIT only): http://libraries.mit.edu/tellus  

 

All other systems are functioning normally at this time.
