COMPUTER ACCOUNTS in ROOM 315, etc:
keys - from gabi. He may ask for a deposit. account on phelafel - will be opened for everyone who hands in form. this account has backup and a webserver. everyone gets one other computer account as well, see list below to see your allocation. assuming a few people bring laptops, then we should manage 2 to a machine (or at worst three in the backrow) in class. you need to start each account by changing the temporary password i started with that I sent in the email. for your first logon either 1(a) go to Rm315 and after entering account name and temporary password (the computers have their names on the screens and on top) OPEN A TERMINAL WITH A MOUSE CLICK ON THE DESKTOP or 1(b) write ssh phmachine -l youridx in a window of tx or t2 (phmachine is phelafel, phelafelold or phclass1 etc, youridx is the account name you asked for on class machines) then 2. change password with the command passwd on the command line enter the temporary one then enter the real one twice. 3. to organise your paths you need to have a file called .cshrc in the main directory of your account.you can find an example to download here. 4. then write `` source .cshrc'' If you do not do the above I am not responsible when you can't work properly. The first person who arrives for each machine should log on each week. note that if you have path problems e.g. on tx (this is happening if you know the file is there but the computer says it cannot find it) then try ./sur2011.ex or ./rwalk.ex etc or else move the .cshrc file from phclass to there via the command (on computer where you have the problem) scp yourname@phclassx:.cshrc . computer allocation in class phelafel - Meirav, Irina phclass1 - phclass2 - Yonatan phelafelold - phclass3 - phclass4 - Split phclass5 - Ori phclass6 - phclass7- laptops - Just a signup is not enough for computer account, need form that is at http://physics.technion.ac.il/~phelafel/The following describes my feelings this morning after getting things ready:
Preparing your webpage: your personal webpage may sit on the computer of your choice, for Graduate Physics students, the computer PHYSICS is a good idea, for all students TX/T2 are possibilities. If you do not have enough space elsewhere you may put your project pages on PHELAFEL. The webpage listed in this class list may not contain political material or anything unsuitable for general distribution. A very plain starting file called myhomepage.html prepared last year (adequate for assignment credit) can be viewed for the imaginary student ploni almoni and downloaded from the class http site, but look around and copy something more exciting if you like. Or give me the location of your existing webpage if you already have one. Credit for completing this website will be given as part of Targil 5, but you should try to do it earlier. There will not be a specific grade for the webpage, but you will get a grade of zero for targil 5 if you do not list an accessible website location with your answers for targil 5.
When you have completed your personal page please send me an email with the information from this link written verbatim (verbatim means exactly the same format), replacing my details with yours, and Project title with your own title.
