0th Week : Coming Up to Oxford

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2012 and yet another Hilary Term.


  1. Is your Anti-Virus software up-to-date?
  2. Is your computer still getting software and security updates?
  3. Have you remembered to uninstall the P2P and File Sharing software that your brother / sister / boyfriend / girlfriend or polyamorous family member installed on your computer over the season’s festivities without you knowing anything about! Gosh how did that get there!?
  4. Do you have a back up of your work / photos / music / computer?
  5. Need ideas of places to store your backups?
  6. Have you brought ALL your computer equipment – including your computer’s recovery and re-install DVDs?
  7. Have you got your Ethernet cable?
  8. Have you got your laptop’s power supply, cable and adapter?
  9. Have you remembered to bring your mobile phone charger?
  10. Don’t tell me you forgot your toothbrush!

If the answer to any of the question above is “no” then let us know – we may be able to help! 🙂

NB – If you had a new computer over Christmas (lucky you) – remember that you will need to register it via PacketFence and will therefore need to know your REMOTE ACCESS credentials.

Marc and I wish you a very happy New Year and a successful Hilary Term 2012.
