Security Tip
While most people know the danger of email attachments, dangers can also lie in the body of an email too. HTML mail or mails that contain embedded photos are just as dangerous. Embedded images and PDFs can contain malicious code that is harmful. Please do not open any unsolicited/suspicious mail.

IT Tip
Determine the exact date and time when a website was last updated or modified by inserting this string into the address bar: javascript:alert(document.lastModified).

IT Sustainability Tip
Turning lights off when not in use will extend the number of days the tube will need before replacement and will also save energy.
