SOM to hold Basic Science Town Meeting on Friday

The next Basic Science Town Meeting with Edward D. Miller, dean of the School of Medicine and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, and Chi Van Dang, vice dean for research in the School of Medicine, will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 9, in 612 Physiology, East Baltimore campus.

The agenda will include "IBBS Initiatives: Identification and Implementation."


Homewood wireless computer network to have ID changed

The primary identification name for the wireless computing network at the Homewood campus will change from "jhmiradio" to "standard" no later than Jan. 26, the beginning of spring semester classes.

This change could affect the connectivity of any networked wireless device, such as a laptop, handheld or PDA.

The newer "standard" wireless network, introduced by the Johns Hopkins Network Services group during the fall 2003 semester, has enhanced security features, according to Calvin Sproul, manager of network architecture and design.

During the winter break, "standard" will become the primary means to connect to the wireless network on the Homewood campus. The "jhmiradio" broadcast name will remain active but will be relegated to secondary status until it is retired for the fall 2004 semester.

Anyone having problems connecting to "jhmiradio" after the switch takes place should configure his or her wireless device for the "standard" network. For instructions to make this change, go to wireless/index.html.
