George Brown Computer Details
Trs-80 Model
George Brown College is once again graciously allowing jammers to use their machines (if desired). Their computers are serious!


5 Important Things

  1. You need to bring a USB key and save all your work on it. When computers restart, they automatically revert to their original state. All files are deleted.
  2. All machines can use either Windows >or< OSX.
  3. While you can install software (i.e. GameMaker),
    it will be removed if you restart.
  4. Machines restart at 11pm unless you CANCEL when prompted.
  5. You're welcome to use just the George Brown monitor, but it requires a MAC proprietary "Mini Display Port" connection. There is NO DVI or VGA connector (you'll need an adapter).

Hardware

At at minimum, you should expect the following specs:

  • Mac Pro
  • Dual Quad Core Processor @ 2.26GHz
  • 12GB RAM
  • NVidia GeForce GT 120 w/t 512MB
  • 24" Apple Display w/t Mini Display Port
  • Wired Internet access.

Please note, George Brown has recently upgraded their computers with a newer model Mac Pro in many of their rooms over the past year so it is possible you may have access to even better hardware. However, it would be best to expect the minimum specs as we can not guarantee to place jammers on newer machines should they request it.
