INRF Users,
Today there was a blown cylinder head on one of the compressors for the lab compressed air.  As a result the lab compressed air is down and OFFLINE.  It looks like this will be the case at least until Monday 7/17/17 but it could be offline for another week or more.  We can update again as soon as we know more.

Please do NOT start playing around with netbooks or computers looking for the Legacy System or changing computer settings.

Please do NOT access the Latch System.

Please do NOT modify hardware (cables, latch boxes, etc).

Please only use the Chrome browser and the Forged website on lab computers and netbooks.

Everything is now universally done through the Forged System via Chrome.

If you have an issue with Forged system operation, please first check that your User Profile is fully complete, updated, and accurate. Then once that is verified contact staff for assistance vs. trying to change things yourself.
