  • All calls will require area code beginning Saturday, Aug. 19
    - Posted on August 16, 2017
    • Greetings students,

      As I am sure you have heard already, the 518 area is adding a new area code, 838. I wanted to send a reminder that beginning Aug. 19, 2017, you must dial the area code when placing any call, even when placing calls to other 518 area code numbers. This will be the case for your work, home, and cellular lines.

      Who is affected and why?

      The 518 area code region is close to the maximum capacity for assigned phone numbers.  Rather than trying to split the area into two distinct area codes, the area code 838 is being added as an overlay. Beginning Sept. 19, 2017, new telephone lines or services within the area potentially can be assigned the 838 area code, and both these area codes will be considered local.

      All local calls will remain local for billing purposes. However, since there are now two local area codes, all calls will require the use of the area code and the 7-digit phone number or calls won’t be completed.

      Calling Hudson Valley Community College offices and staff

      Beginning August 19, 2017, you will need to dial the 518 area code along with the phone number of the college office or staff member you are attempting to reach. If you have preset, “Speed Dial” numbers programmed into your phone, these will need to be updated to reflect the required 10-digit calling number.

      Thanks, and best regards,

      Jonathan Brennan
      Chief Information Officer
      Hudson Valley Community College

  • Office 365 authentication issue
    - Posted on August 10, 2017
    • NOTE: Online Office 365 has an authentication issue and Microsoft has been notified.

      This should not affect the Outlook application or mobile devices.

      UPDATE:

      What was the problem?
      Between 7:30am and 9:00am this morning, HVCC experienced a token failure between our Federation Server and Office 365. This outage affected users attempting to gain access to Office 365 via the web interface.

      Resolution
      As of 9:00am, the system failure was remediated through Microsoft and access has been restored to the campus. Services were impacted for approximately 1.5 hours.

      If you continue to have authentication issues, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at 629-7365 and we will assist in getting you connected. We apologize for the inconvenience this disruption caused and thank you for your patience while it was being resolved.

  • Information about ticks from Barbara Boyle, SUNY’s environmental health and safety director
    - Posted on August 8, 2017
    • Spraying pesticides for ticks is not as easy as fogging for mosquitoes. Ticks are more likely to be in hard to access brush areas rather than open, accessible athletic fields or manicure greens, so it is harder to get the pesticides in the right place.

      While you can do it (and it may be needed in special situations), you usually don’t see the population decimation and tick reductions typically last only a few weeks. The benefits have to be weighed against some of the unwanted side effects of pesticide use.

      So we are more inclined to address problems with landscape manipulations and more of an integrated pest management approach. You can trim, prune and clear greenery. You can take actions (e.g., thinning the tree canopy and building fences) to disrupt animal activity. You can use edging and mulch to create a three foot boundary between people-occupied areas and tall grass or brush areas. The Center for Disease Control provides some landscaping guidance at https://www.cdc.gov/lyme/prev/in_the_yard.html.

      A huge component of any program is to teach people about ticks, suggest appropriate clothing and the use of repellents, and urge people to inspect their bodies for ticks after they have been in potential tick areas.

      The CDC page with information on the people part of the equation is https://www.cdc.gov/lyme/prev/on_people.html. The NYS Department of Health also has a good page, complete with videos, at https://www.health.ny.gov/diseases/communicable/lyme/.

      The CDC page on Lyme disease is https://www.cdc.gov/lyme/.
      The CDC page on tick borne diseases is https://www.cdc.gov/ticks/diseases/index.html.
