What's Happening with Technology in Arts & Sciences Right Now:

College of Arts & Sciences Web Site cleanup in progress; Misspells, Broken Links etc.. URI now has a reporting system (off site) that presents me with a list of Misspells & Broken Links on all Arts & Sciences Web Pages which allows me to go in and fix these errors little by little. The last shows that A&S has over 2132 pages in existance (this does not count Departments Computer Science, Math, Chemistry or the Harrington School as they administaer their own Web Pages as of right now) with 541 broken links (left, that number was allot higher a few weeks ago when this whole report & repair process started) and 177 misspellings (as of the April 29, 2012 report).
