'''Safety and  Security:'''
'''Santa Fe, NM'''
* Anyone who wishes to be escorted on campus may call security ( 'O' on the campus phone) and an officer will escort anyone place to place (say the computer lab to dorm room, etc).
* Capitol City Cabs (505-438-0000) will give rides free of charge to women who would otherwise walk alone in the city at night, ''no questions asked''. See [http://www.freenewmexican.com/news/61746.html this article].
* Free taxi rides for everyone on Friday and Saturday nights! The county will pay for residents to take cabs anywhere in the city from 5:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. The Chauffeur and Designated Driver program, called CADDy and modeled after a similar program in Grant County, aims to reduce drinking and driving.


'''Computing and Network Information'''
'''21 June - 4 July, 2009'''
* Neither the  St John's college computer network nor the  Santa Fe Institute computer network are to be used for Internet File Sharing Applications. Violation of this policy can lead to loss of network access.
* The network at St John's tends to be rather slow. For those who can go into town, there are several places with free wifi access. They are: Santa Fe Baking Company on Cordova near St Francis; Aztec Cafe on Aztec between Guadalupe and Sandoval; Java Joe's on Rodeo Road at Zia; CD Cafe on Guadalupe near Bumble Bee's Baja Grill; Starbuck's in De Vargas Mall. Border's Books has a t-mobile hot-spot at their 2 locations.
* We have provided 3 Intel iMacs, with Windows running in the Parallels application for those who must have Windows. See instructions below.
* Please be sure to lock the door to Chamisa 102 when you are the last to leave. Equipment is easily removed if left unlocked.
* MATLAB is available on the Mac side only.
* How to use Parallels, the windows emulator:
1. Click and open Parallels icon which is yellow and looks like two Ds that are connected.


2. This starts a window that shows the configuration. click the green play button on the right hand side.
The Santa Fe Institute is pleased to announce the 15th annual Graduate Workshop in Computational Social Science Modeling and Complexity. The workshop will bring together a group of advanced graduate students and a small faculty for an intensive two week study of computational social science modeling and complexity. The workshop will consist of lectures by faculty, special topic seminars by members of the Santa Fe Institute, and presentations of work in progress by graduate student participants. The primary goal of the summer workshop is to assist graduate students pursuing research agendas which include a computational modeling component. A significant portion of the workshop will be devoted to analyzing and improving research being conducted by the graduate student participants.
 
3. Windows will boot up.
 
4. Click  on the window to select it, and click on the view option on the menu bar.
Select what mode you want  to use:
 
Coherence makes the windows application run on the apple desktop, without showing the Windows desktop.

On the bottom of the OS window, it shows the configurations, and on the right, the red stop button will close it, the pause button will pause execution, the green play button will start it and the bent yellow arrow will restart it. You can also configure the Virtual Machine, and choose the window options .
 
The Parallels installation will capture the CD/DVD drive when it is running, so if a CD is not showing up on the Mac desktop, stop the parallels program to release the drive.
