Accessing Individual Computer Terminals
On many occasions individual lab computers will be inaccessible for a number of reasons. An easy way to determine a computer's state is to check the background colour of the login screen:
- A blue background indicates that the machine is free for normal use.
- A maroon background indicates that the machine has been booked by a subject (lab) class. Only students enrolled in this subject (or those partaking in the lab exercise) can use this machine.
- A purple background indicates a personal booking, where only the student who made the booking can use the machine.
- A black background indicates a machine which has been removed from the general pool of available computers. You will not be able to use, or book this machine.
