A Note On Accounts

The department has been gradually shifting towards making more use of centrally managed services which are accessed using a MyCarletonOne account.   All desktop pc’s owned and managed by the department are now accessed using a MyCarletonOne account.   Math department computer accounts are now only used to access a Math department mailbox or the Lovelace Linux server.   Graduate lab Linux desktop machines and the ottawa and toronto compute servers require an additional Graduate lab account.
