Why is my Account Access Denied?
You may be denied access to your account for several reasons, almost all of these involve you doing something wrong. The list of `something wrong' includes:
- Letting someone else use your account.
- Bringing food or drink into the laboratories; eating, drinking and/or smoking in the laboratories. Such items should be kept out of sight at all times!
- Attempting to violate the system security (such as attempting to crack another user's password), attempting to access unauthorised files (these include other users' files and system files), attempting to damage, delete, or alter unauthorised files.
- Misuse of resources or interfering with the equipment in any way.
- Violating any other reasonable directive made by a member of the support staff.
Of course, if you have not done anything wrong, it may mean that a member of the support staff needs to have a chat to you, and switching your account off is an effective way of gaining your attention quickly.
