The minutes of the December 17th, 1999 meeting were approved as written.

Mike Hatch reported that the Desktop Standardization committee had not received any more surveys.  The committee is scheduled to meet next Wednesday but it may be postponed until more responses come in.

Wil Clark wasn't present to give a report of the Student Computing Committee, but a member reported that the Students in the Tree schema hadn't been populated with data yet and that one cause for the delay was that Craig Terrell had been told that the EUID could be changed (this from Academic Computing.)  Maurice said that it was his understanding that the EUID could not be changed, particularly for students, and he would check on the question and see what the truth was. Mike Hatch and Paul Hons both said that their colleges wouldn't be using the SIT this semester.

Maurice reported that he had sent out the student computing wages survey and was waiting to get all of the responses back.  He asked the members to get their responses in by January 15th.

Brenda Kirk described a problem she had seen with HP printers dropping from the network.  HP had recommended a new network card, but that hadn't solved the problem. She and Gary Matthews had eventually found a solution from the Novell Web site and can assist other LAN managers with the problem if needed.

Maurice distributed a copy of the Yahoo Internet Life Survey for 2000 and asked for the DCSMT's help in completing the portion dealing with student computing.  He needs the responsed by the end of January.

Jim Curry reported that he is in the final stages of determining the needs for flat panel monitors on campus. The units that are being evaluating are NEC 15" displays which will cost $834 each if the campus buys 50 of them. Since he has to return the evaluation unit by January 21st, he asked the members to contact him as soon as possible if they're interested in checking the panels out.

The meeting adjourned at 10:50 AM.
