Terminal access to the Internet and printing during MGP2006

A bank of computers in the newsroom of the 'Massachusetts Daily Collegian' student paper will be configured for guest use of MGP2006 summit conference participants. A guest log-in will provide for:

  • Internet access via a web browser (for web mail)
  • Non-administrator use of MS Office (word, excel, PPT)
  • Sending files to the network printer/copier

This will be a convenience for those participants who don't bring their own laptops to check email, print boarding passes, review websites and post to the conference wiki and blog. Because The Collegian doesn't publish in the summer, the newsroom is available.
