End of Support for Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003| March 11, 2014
On April 8, both Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2003 will officially reach their end-of-life. At that time, Microsoft will no longer provide any security updates or patches for either Windows XP or Office 2003. The lack of security updates means that University computers may be at risk if they continue to use Windows XP or Office 2003 after April 8.
Because of this, Information Technology Services (ITS) strongly recommends that departments (or individuals) take the following steps for University-owned machines:
• Identify systems running Windows XP or Microsoft Office 2003.
• Contact the ITS Help Desk and request a price quote.
• Replace the XP systems by July 31.
• Upgrade Office 2003 to Office 2010 any time at no charge.
ITS will work with departments over the coming year and make recommendations on how to proceed.
For more information about Windows XP and Office 2003 end of support, visit the website
or contact the ITS Help Desk at 607-777-6420 or via e-mail
and a desktop support analyst will contact you.

Harpur Cinema to screen “Farewell My Queen”| March 10, 2014
Farewell My Queen
(Benoît Jacquot, 2012, France,100 min.) will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 14 and Sunday, March 16, in LH-6. The story of Marie Antoinette’s ruin has been told many times on the screen (at least as far back as 1922), but never from the perspective taken in this film. Based on a novel by Chantal Thomas, who won the 2002 Prix Femina, we see the Queen and the fall of the royalty from the viewpoint of a domestic, Sidonie Laborde. Running up and down the drab hallways that contrast starkly with the gleaming royal spaces, Léa Seydoux depicts Sidonie’s devotion in all its breadth and subtlety, from loyal subject to adoring and even erotic admirer of a woman who is rapidly falling apart before her eyes. Winner: César, 2013 (Cinematography), Prix Louis Delluc, 2012 (Best Picture); Nominated: Golden Bear Berlin, 2012 (Best Director); Cesar, 2013 (Best Director, Best Film). Introduction by Dora Polachek, associate professor of French.
Admission is $4. For questions or information, contact Nancy Wlostowski via e-mail
or call 777-4998.
