NMF Laptop Pickup

<p>When/where is the UA NMF laptop pickup? I forgot my info letter at home. Thank you!</p>

<p>Tues Aug 17 @11 am in Gordon Palmer, Room 208. Don't be late!</p>

<p>Ok, thank you!</p>

<p>Malanai, you scared me. My son's letter says 9:00 am on Tuesday, August 17, 2010, in Gordon Palmer Room 208. Maybe you're thinking Hawaii time? I made a copy and had son take the original. He's having a jampacked day and is going to Target tonight, which really cracks me up, so I hope he doesn't forget!</p>

<p>That's what those message boards are for. That way, they can make note that they need to be at something that important.</p>

<p>I'm pretty sure D's letter said 11a.m., as well. perhaps they are breaking them into groups?</p>

<p>Last year, they broke the laptop distribution into two groups, because of the number of National Merit scholars. Sounds as if they may be doing the same this year.</p>

<p>No, Hawaii time would be 4am if the distribution is at 9am, lol. I'm sure our letter said 11, so I guess they must be breaking the bunch into two groups.</p>

<p>My D is at 9am so there must be two groups. And she's counting the hours; good thing she has Target to distract her tonight ;)</p>

<p>Ha, ha, malanai, I was just playing with you. Looks like they are in two groups. Wishing my son had the later group now, though, since he's burning the midnight oil at Target tonight. But there's a lot of stuff going on tomorrow, too, so better to get an early start, I guess!</p>

<p>Montegut: If you think he burned the midnight oil with the Target visit, wait until he pulls the all-nighters for his classes. You learn to sleep when you can.</p>

<p>I don't worry about my kids and sleep. It's their job to manage their sleep. :)</p>

<p>Son's letter is for 10am pickup. It. Seems as if there are different pickup times.</p>

<p>Son is looking forward to running into some of his Alabama Action and CBH friends at the pickup today. Wow, there must be lots of kids getting laptops, that they had to stagger the times. Just another example of Bama's incredible generosity.</p>

<p>Son walked his classes yesterday and is ready to go!</p>

<p>Best of luck to all your kids this semester!</p>

<p>Got a text from D a little after 9: "my laptop's crimson!"</p>

<p>got call "No charging cable with laptop" surprised it would come that way. Was that something we had to get beforehand?</p>

<p>Check with the personnel who handed out those laptops, Socal2bama. I know my son's laptop last year included everything he needed to charge it. Perhaps when it was packaged, it was an oversight.</p>

<p>That's what we thought may have happened. I will tell him that in past it was all there so must be an oversight.</p>

<p>Don't know if son is missing anything or not, but if he is, where would he go to get his missing parts, or who would he report it to? Would he go to Carolyn Rogers' office or would he go to the technology help office, and if so, where are those places?</p>

<p>Question about recovery disks. No program to make them. Friends who are bringing their own computers did that first thing. Where can the kids getting the Bama laptops go to get help to make recovery disks? </p>

<p>General question regarding laptops, too. I remember on my tour, the guide pointing out a place where you go for computer problems. What is the name of that place and where is it and is it available to all students?</p>

<p>I'm sure this information would be helpful to all kids with laptops, university issued or not.</p>
