This is not a public computing
facility. The MCVL facility was established by Drs. Zhuang and
Palaniappan and is dedicated to research only. Having an account here
is a privilege, not a right. Not abiding by the policies below will

The lab is for research only.
Personal unrelated jobs, unnecessary Web page browsing, or homework
assignments cannot be done using MCVL
resources. For classwork you should be using IATS facilities.
Do not share your password or user account privileges include disk
usage with any other user or anyone else. This is a computer security
violation and can result in immediate termination of your account.
Installing any software or hardware
on the UNIX workstations or PCs in MCVL must be coordinated through the

permission. Note: In order to provide E-mail services, we cannot
restrict access to meru in the same manner as the other four computers.
(However, you are not allowed to log onto meru!)
Do not reboot computers, especially
workstations whose hard disks can be easily damaged.
Only research related material
can be stored under your account. Offensive material is strictly forbidden.
When you do not use the machine,
please log off when you leave for an extended period of time so that other
lab members can use the workstation. And use xlock when you step away from the console for a short period of time. This is to ensure system security.
