Hi Folks,

We wanted to let you all know about a couple things from the world of Prairie IT...
  • Email Nasties -- SPAM is always a "fun" topic and we have gotten our share over the summer. Two recent problems have been the bogus "Greeting Card" messages and the threat from PDF attachments.

    In both cases the best rule of thumb is, "If you are not 100% sure the sender is valid no NOT open the message or attachment" Another good one is "When in doubt, DON'T."

    Stop and contact IT Services ( or ext 3395) because we would much rather take 5 minutes answering a question than possibly hours cleaning an infected machine.

  • It seems that many don't know that the email address goes to several of us in the PITS so we can get the most qualified person working on your requests so, please, always send new computer requests to

  • Jobs for Copy Center should go to
