Description:  At the end of this month, SharePoint will be migrated to SharePoint 2013.  A very big thank you to everyone who tested their sites and provided feedback to help make this transition a smooth one.

We will begin transferring your data to the new servers on December 20th.  During the transfer process, SharePoint services will still be in read only mode.  We expect the SharePoint migration to be completed by 5:00 PM on December 23rd.

Once the SharePoint 2013 servers are running, your URL for your site will be the same as your old site.  Let us know if you have any questions or concerns about the upgrade and/or your site.  Contact David Higdon at 328-9132 or email at higdond@ecu.edu.

Lenovo Recalls LS-15 AC Power Cords
Posted 12-10-2014

On Tuesday, December 9, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall (No. 15-044) of 500,000 Lenovo AC power cords in the U.S. due to a power hazard.  Another 44,000 cords have been recalled in Canada.  The recall came after 15 reported incidents of overheating, sparking, melting and burning.  No injuries have been reported.

Manufactured in China, the cords are black in color and stamped with the “LS-15” molded mark on the AC adapter end.  The manufacture date code in the format “REV: 00 YYMM” is on a label attached to the cord.  The recall includes power cords manufactured between February – December 2011 and were sold with several IdeaPad and Lenovo laptop models.

If you believe you have one of these recalled power cords, please stop using the cord immediately.  Your laptop is fine to use on battery power.  Lenovo is replacing these power cords free of charge.
