Longest serving Network Technician retiring

Learning Resources’ longest serving Network Technician Peter Cook is retiring after 22 years on the job. Chances are Peter patched your computer to the network at some time – possibly several times.

Peter started work at UC on 30 May 1996.

Many of you will remember Peter for his participation in various multi-disciplinary athletic endeavours, which included road running, cross-country, back-country,  cycling, swimming and kayaking.

More recently Peter and his wife Gaylene purchased a lifestyle block in North Canterbury where they now live and will no doubt keep Peter occupied in his retirement.

Peter will be farewelled at a morning tea on his last day on 11 August. His Learning Resources’ colleagues wish Peter and Gaylene all the best for the future and would like to thank Peter for all the work he has done to keep our network connected.

Follow You Printing update

IT Services rolled out Follow You printing to student-facing areas last year.  The staff from Ricoh and IT Services are currently working on a replacement plan to add Follow You capability to all current Card Scan Printers (also known as Multi-Functional Devices – MFDs).  Please note that departments will no longer need to create a Purchase Order for moving printers or Card Scan Printers, as this is now covered by ITS.

Updated forms are:

  • Additional Print Service Request
  • Move printer/Card Scan Printers within a building
  • Print services no longer required

New forms are:

  • Printing Services Feedback
  • Problem with Printer / Card Scan Printers
  • Doctoral Printing Allowance
