Watch How Linux is Built
Check the due date for each assignment and put a reminder in your agenda, calendar, and digital assistant.
The first week of classes is broken up by Labour Day on Monday, College Orientation on Tuesday, and CST Orientation during part of Thursday.
The interruptions mean that many students will not have CST8207 lab sections scheduled this week. Students in the missing sections can attend any of the other lab sections if there is space. See the list of lab sections on the Course Home Page or see these two timetables:
Your course work for most of the term will be done by Remote Login to a Course Linux Server (CLS) machine using your Algonquin userid (the same userid that you use for Blackboard) and a special CLS server password (not your Blackboard password) that you must get from your instructor. See the connection information in Course Linux Server and work with your instructor during lab time if you have problems connecting to the server.
Read the Test Instructions (all the words) before your midterm tests.
Tests take place in class in your one-hour lecture hour, not in your lab period.
Take notes in class! Your in-class notes would go here.
The CST first-term Orientation starts 9am Thursday September 10 in T102. All regular first-term CST classes and labs are cancelled between 9am and 3:50pm on Thursday. All new students must go directly to T102 at 9am.
Students in my 8am Thursday CST8207 lab should attend one of the other lab periods this week; the Thursday lab is cancelled. See the Course Home Page for the Timetable for the other lab times on Tuesday.
Read the Test Instructions (all the words) before your first midterm test.
Check your email later this week for your MSDNAA and VMWare account access information. Check your spam/junk folder also, in case the email is there. If you have no email by the end of this week, contact the CST coordinator Richard Donnelly.
Keep a notebook with a List of Commands in it.
Turn on “show file extensions” in your Windows machines, or else you may upload files with incorrect names such as
Never use the sample userid
abcd0001 to log in. These are example userids used in the notes that are meant to be replaced with your own login userid. If you try repeatedly to log in to the Course Linux Server from home using a non-existent userid, your home IP address will be locked out; see your instructor for help.
