  • Dial-up Internet service in the San Antonio area has been successfully restored as of 12:30 p.m. on June 4. This is a service similar to the old AOL dial up service where one uses a modem to connect to the Internet. Details of the service connection for San Antonio area residents is located at http://www.ollusa.edu/s/1190/ollu.aspx?sid=1190&gid=1&pgid=3098 under Academics, Campus Technology, Network/Telecom, Dial Up Internet Service. There was some internal debate about restoring this service since it is becoming outdated as more Web services require much higher speeds than one can get via dial up, but there are a number of users who only use Internet access for e-mail and text-based Web browsing, for which dial-up is adequate. Although not free, the more current and popular cable modem and DSL services available today from Time Warner, AT&T and others are the preferred Internet services for those who need to access multimedia sites and sounds and to upload or download files of any significant size (distance learning/teaching). If problems occur, contact Dave Lytle, Director of Network/Telecom Services at ext. 3943.

  • Campus Police has reopened traffic on Providence Road. Vehicles are now being allowed on campus, but all employees and students are urged to proceed with caution. Barricades are not to be removed for any reason.  

  • The main University phone number, 210-434-6711, is now available.

     
  • Saturday, May 10, was the first work day of the pay period for staff and students who are paid biweekly. Hourly employees are asked to use paper time cards. 
    • While the Stromberg system is still functioning at the clock level, the memory at each clock is quickly being used up.  At this time, there is no way to download the data from the clocks to clear each clock's memory. This necessitates the use of the paper time cards.  
    • Click here for the PDF of the time card (two per page) for your convenience. We will let you know when we can resume use of the Stromberg system. Thank you for your patience.
