Lab S110 Ross:
Make sure that your York card has the magnetic strip activated to give
access to the Gauss Lab (go to the registrar to activate your card: it
takes 24 hours
to activate this account, so do this early). Students need a
Gauss Lab account in order to use machines in S110. To get this account,
use the MMS
system to obtain a YORKARTS and a MATHSTAT accounts.
