The CEE computing facility, with its appropriate hardware, software and
IT support, are essential to successfully teach our CEE courses.
Moreover, many of our classes require the use of computational tools that
are only installed in these machines. The strategy of replacing these
machines every 4 years seems reasonable and has worked very well for the
department. Proof of that is the intensive and effective use of this
computing facility over the years.

In this context, I strongly support this request for funding to replace
50 stations and a server.

The lab's are an essential resource for students to work on projects and
to access state-of-the-art software. Perhaps the single-most valuable
skill-set for future employers (i.e. scientific computing) is gained by
students that are using these labs

This computer lab has been instrumental, more than the UW Libraries, in
helping me study. As this computer lab is part of MORE, it allows CEE
majors to easily access it and promotes a group study enviroment. I spend
a vast majority of time, as does other CEEs, in their and value that it
is there.

It would be wonderful to get computers with hardware capable of being
used by software to run analysis. Both Autocad and Matlab are able to
utilize Nvidia's CUDA technology but the computer's in the lab don't have
the hardware for it. Also Windows XP is an outdated OS and
software/hardware is being designed for Windows 7 now.

increasing technological capabilities of our computers to keep up with
modeling/computing requirements for higher end programs will allow the
students to utilize memory intensive programs more effectively.Research
can be expedited with increased speed and lower chance of memory resource
failure. I know this will benefit students both currently and in the
future to achieve greater success by allowing students a broader scope of
use for preexisting technological applications.

I support upgrading the computers in the lab, provided the upgraded
equipment does not contribute further to the levels of microwave
radiation already present in the building (i.e. doesn’t utilize or
upgrade the wireless network or utilize wireless peripherals). It would
be nice to be able to run resource-intensive applications like Autocad
and ArcGIS more efficiently, as these applications currently run
extremely slowly. However, I experience various negative effects on my
central nervous system when in close proximity to wireless technology and
I don’t want to make the computer lab a more difficult environment to be
in than it already is.

As long as we’re just talking about getting faster and more capable
computers that will still connect to the network using Ethernet cables
and will still connect to peripherals using USB (or other) cables, I’m
all for it.

The CEE workstations work just fine. Instead of replacing 50 perfectly
capable computers, we should make printing free for CEE students. Limit
the number of prints per quarter.   The technology fee at SSCC provides
students with 300 prints/quarter.

I would also like to see the lighting improved in the room, if possible.
When using the computer stations, I often need to read books or write on
paper, which are both difficult to do in certain areas of the room
because many lights are out and have not been replaced. : )

I have some suggestions that would make the lab facility more useful for
me. Some suggestions may fall outside the "technology" category, but I
got my chance to provide some input.
1) Allow wireless printing from own laptop using Husky account for
printing charges. Current printing payment method seems quite efficient.

2) Provide a color printer option, which obviously would charge more
than B&W prints.

3) Provide option for 11x17 printing, perhaps with the combo of 11x17
and color. Those who work with construction plans or large spreadsheets
would find this useful. Again, appropriate charges for more expensive
equipment/toner/printing are anticipated.

4) "Laptop" stations to plug in personal laptops...access to outlets is
limited if others are sitting at the tables.

5) MAC machines. Need I say more?!     Not a MAC user myself, but the lab
certainly doesn't support MAC users.

6) Improve lighting in the lab...or just replace More Hall entirely and
build brand new computer lab comparable to other university campuses.
More Hall is likely the reason some students choose to go elsewhere. Had
I not known what I wanted already, I would easily be attracted to a
facility that is at least remodeled and facilitates student gatherings
(for socializing and for studying). I've searched several surrounding
buildings and found the same problem with no study lounges anywhere.
There is a dark, dingy feeling to More Hall compared to my alma mater.
With the exception of the inhabitants, More Hall is not an inviting or
inspiring structure. Kiewit has donated an entire high-tech lecture hall
to Purdue, and named the Kiewit Lecture Hall (or similar), so I'm
surprised UW CE hasn't procured funds from local or national CE firms.
Perhaps such firms are not at the giving level of Bill Gates and Paul
Allen, but giving opportunities with plaques for advertisement isn't all
that unusual on campuses elsewhere. Bill Gates is fascinated by Leonardo
da Vinci, who was fascinated by major natural disasters (especially
floods), that maybe Bill will donate a "da Vinci" lab!!!!

NOTE:   Begin marketing campaign for Leonardo da Vinci lab???...see this
book:

"Fortune Is a River : Leonardo Da Vinci and Niccolo Machiavelli's
Magnificent Dream to Change the Course of Florentine History"

From Amazon: "In the tradition of the New York Times bestselling
Longitude comes a popular history that reveals the little known story of
what happened when two of the world's most brilliant minds met. Italy,
the year 1502. Leonardo da Vinci, engineer and possible spy in the court
of Cesare Borgia, crosses paths with Niccol Machiavelli, at that time
Florentine ambassador.

The two men formed a friendship, and joined together in an attempt to
carry out one of Leonardo's most fantastic dreams: to build a system of
canals that would make the Arno river navigable from Florence to the sea.
While the primary reason for the project was military, da Vinci and
Machiavelli also had commerce in mind. They envisioned a day when
explorers would be able to sail from the city center to the sea and back,
bringing riches from the New World for the greater glory of Florence.

In Fortune Is a River Roger Masters provides concise and insightful
biographies of two of history's greatest geniuses, an interpretation of
their roles in history, and a window into their culture. It is a first-
rate popular history and a fascinating introduction to the wonders of the
Italian Renaissance."

OK, it was just an idea.

7) Finally, provide a quiet study area for students in the building.
The ASCE lounge is most uninviting and the computer lab is noisy when
busy. I realize the HUB will provide good study areas once opened.

   Clearly, update and improvement is continually needed on IT. Please
attempt to limit fee increases as my income is not increasing.
   However, threatened cuts in IT occur while worse-than-useless Federal
multi-trillion dollar bail-outs continue. Why isn't the University
fighting to have those bail-outs cut to zero through Glass-Steagall
financial reorganization? Why should States and University students
sacrifice education or facilities for the bad gambling debts of Wells-
Fargo or JP Morgan Chase? Ought not the University "cover our backs"
while we are are fighting to obtain higher academic qualifications?

computer work that is involved in their coursework. Up-to-date computers
(with a broad range of software) are essential to the training of our
students. I strongly support this initiative.

I personally use this with gredas 3 or 4 and up. When they can read well.
High school students could certainly use it, too, especially as a good
review of grammar, because it will start easier and get appropriately
hard enough by the end of the year.As for the KJV, it will use a LOT of
KJV, but because this covers a history of the English language, we wanted
Bible verses that use more modern English as well. Also, at the beginning
of the year, when not enough grammar is known, we use simpler versions,
such as the NIrV. As the students learn more, more difficult versions can
be used.By the way, I love using the KJV in pronoun study. Knowing what
the thee's and thou's mean and knowing their case helps SO much in
understanding both the Bible and the way we use English today. The KJV's
use of these so-called ancient words makes it much more specific and
understandable.I hope this helps!Hugs,~Anne
