Apple's latest release of the Mac OS - codenamed El Capitan - was released this week to favorable reviews. More recently, however, there have been many reports that the new Mac OS and the latest version of Microsoft Office for Mac are not working and playing well together.
The release of Apple iOS9 for the iPhone and iPad has generated huge amounts of network traffic as users of these devices rush to download the OS update from Apple. As with most new software releases, however, this one is not without some problems. In the case of iOS9, those installing the upgrade are going to find that it breaks the mobile Apple operating system's ability to easily connect to the NWU-wireless network.
Unite Private Networks (UPN) has just informed us of scheduled maintenance operations on their network which might possibly impact NWU's connection to our Internet Service Provider (ISP).
UPN will be upgrading or replacing equipment on their fiber network between 12:01am and 4:00am on July 14 and again between the same hours on July 15. They report that the required maintenance might product 3-4 service interruptions of between 10-15 minutes duration for each day.
