Transcript Computers Clusters provide valuable service If you lived in the residence halls, no doubt you noticed those rooms with all the little Macintoshes lined up in a row. Sometimes the rooms were empty. Sometimes you could find a resident playing games. The main reason for having the computer clusters was for academic use. Although there were computers available for students in several buildings on campus, the residence directors saw a need to supply computers for those living in the halls. There has been an incredible response. Very seldom were the rooms empty and sometimes having a computer available was a matter of pass or fail. There were, of course, problems. In the Towers game room, playing was eliminated because it was interfering with school work. Although rules stated that academic use was pri ority, residents did not always comply. Another drawback had been repairs. All too often, one or more of the computers would not be working, causing students to wait hours to use the computers. "There were only two computers working on one day, and it was practically impossible to use them," said Don Easterling, a Quad resident. Even if the hardware was available, it was not always working properly. "The only complaint that I have is that the printers take forever," said Carrie Dykes, a Towers resident. Even if they weren't always the best or easiest alternative, the computer clusters in the residence halls provided an invaluable service that would have been hard to live without. -Stephanie Colston Red Eyed And Weary.
