     Home Pages and Shortcuts
We appreciate it when you change the Lab Home Pages
   and delete the technical shortcuts because:

a.   The new Home pages allow quick updates to NFL
     scores.
b.   Shortcuts just clutter nice wallpaper.
c.   It’s fun to watch staff attempt to find MSDS sheets
     without shortcuts.
d.   It’s job security for the I.T. staff changing them back to
     the Department standard.
e.   None of the above.


                                                              13
Don’t change Home Page.
 Don’t delete Shortcuts.
