Exam4 may not work this fall with next Mac and Windows operating systems

Microsoft and Apple are releasing new operating systems later this year, with current estimates stating "summer" for Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and October for Windows 8. The timing of these new operating system releases will have consequences for development and release of compatible versions of Exam4. Exam4's publisher, Extegrity, announced today that for Fall 2012 exams, Windows 8 will definitely NOT be supported; and Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) is "to be determined."

Please be mindful this summer that if you purchase an Apple Macbook or Macbook Pro and do so after the release of OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion), you may not be able to use that new laptop on exams next fall; and if you already own a Mac and decide to upgrade to Mountain Lion, you also may not able to use your Mac for Fall 2012 exams. While students upgrading to Windows 8 or purchasing new laptops with Windows 8 may be similarly inconvenienced, its tentative October release gives us more time to remind you when school resumes in August.

Best of luck on finals, and have a great and safe summer!

Congratulations to the newly elected SBA Officers!!

Souls for Soles

Souls for Soles is a non-profit charity that collects ALL types of shoes, whether they are worn out, high heels, flip flops, or brand new nike shocks. The good pairs of matching shoes go to either victims of poverty in developing countries or to crisis aid relief. The shoes that are mis-matched or in poor condition will be sold to a recycling agency. The money will be used to ship the good shoes to those two aforementioned destinations. High heels and flip flops, or things that don't really fit, are shipped to consignment stores in poverty stricken areas so they can sell to support job creation and training (like Goodwill). In addition, Souls for Soles sends all sorting work to a small disabled community, which pays for their labor in order to supply jobs to people that aren't able to work a typical job because of their disability. Needless to say, Souls for Soles is also a green initiative, encouraging re-use and recycling. 

 

A collection box will be set in the Mosiac Lobby by Friday, April 20th.

If you have any questions, please contact Daniel Trost (dltros01@louisville.edu).  

Collections end the last day of finals: May 4th, 2011.
