Athena and Your Laptop
Adam Seering

Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)

Tired of having to walk all the way to an Athena cluster to use Athena-specific services? Learn to use your own personal computer to take full advantage of MITNet. Topics covered include using an e-mail program (Thunderbird, Eudora, Apple Mail) instead of WebMail, printing to Athena printers, accessing your Athena home directory and other AFS lockers, and running software such as Matlab and Maple. Both Mac and Windows PC setups will be discussed; if there is interest, Linux setups will also be discussed.

If you have a laptop, bring it!
