I've posted ISO images for the new 2013 MS Office and Adobe CS6 suites on Egnyte:
Licencing for Adobe CS6 - Serial Number: 1325-1008-5114-2186-8457-7595
You can officially use both suites on any University owned machine or from your home machine if you use VPN occasionally. You can download the software and get your own license from USU Software Licensing:

As your publications become available online, please post all new publications you have to our public site:
These will be advertised on the FHC front page. See previous posts for a template of what should be there (i.e. image of cover page, full citation and a 1-3 sentence blurb).

Just to keep folks that are interested in the loop, here are the latest plans for RBT & GCD from Philip:

As you all know, Nick and I combined resources and forces to create the new Fluvial Habitats Center. So you know, the FHC is not a 'brand' we really plan on marketing outside and it is instead a shared facility. That facility includes the pooled resources of the Wheaton ET-AL lab and the Bouwes Eco Logical Research Lab . Those facilities include the new ECC102 lab and the JQL147 lab, as well as all the University owned equipment and computers. The purposes of combining the ET-AL and ELR labs were to make both groups stronger, leverage their combined resources, leverage additional investment by WATS and CNR because of the combination, and take advantage of efficiencies by not duplicating efforts (e.g. websites & Egnyte).
So where do you fit?There are some simple FHC logos (here), but really you should be first and foremost pushing yourself to the outside world as members of the Utah State University of Watershed Sciences Department, and secondarily your lab affiliation. If you are a graduate student for Nick you are in the Eco Logical Research Lab (NOT ELR, Inc.), and if you are a graduate student for Joe, you are a member of the ET-AL lab. Everyone else (all USU employees), are officially members of the ET-AL lab. The reasons for those distinctions have to do with who the PI's are (Joe in case of any awards from ELR, Inc.), who your supervisor is, and who your official bosses are. As such, the above defines your official affiliation. Those formalities aside, we will sloppily likely use FHC, ELR and ET-AL interchangeably in conversation.
Which Website:You'll notice that our shared public domain (http://etal.joewheaton.org) has the banner:
And our shared private site (this one your on https://sites.google.com/a/joewheaton.org/et-al-private/) has the banner:
New Domains:I purchased three new domains so that the FHC doesn't always have to have 'joewheaton.org' in the URL. This allows the whole FHC to share one site, but all the credit isn't tied to my old joewheaton.org domain.

While it seems like a ways off, the Society for Freshwater Science, Society of Wetland Scientists, the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography, etc are holding a massive joint meeting next may in portland, OR.
If folks are going to be around, we should plan to have a strong ET-AL showing. This will occur in a hotbed locale where we have both strong support for BRAT, beaver and restoration and good relationships with RRNW and SWS. It may be ripe for an ICRRR short course or a symposium on the collective work we're doing in the Columbia. I'm not actively on the planning committee, but see this as a great chance to communicate our work in a big setting (yes, it's still smaller than AGU).
See details from the SWS website:
"The First Ever Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting (JASM) to be held in Portland, Oregon, May 18 through May 23, 2014
"Bridging Genes to Ecosystems: Aquatic Science at a Time of Rapid Change" is the theme for an historic joint meeting of four of the leading aquatic scientific societies: Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), Phycological Society of America (PSA), Society for Freshwater Science (SFS), and Society of Wetland Scientists (SWS).
For one week in May of 2014, these four societies will build a bridge across the disciplines within the field of aquatic science and will explore many exciting opportunities for collaboration among scientists.
ASLO is a society whose purpose is to foster a diverse, international scientific community that creates, integrates and communicates knowledge across the full spectrum of aquatic sciences, advances public awareness and education about aquatic resources and research, and promotes scientific stewardship of aquatic resources for the public interest. Its products and activities are directed toward these ends.
PSA is a society to promote the advancement of phycology and to foster phycological research.
SFS is an international scientific organization whose purpose is to promote further understanding of aquatic ecosystems, with particular interest in the stream benthic biological community and its relationship to aquatic ecosystem structure and function.
SWS is an international organization dedicated to the conservation, management and scientific understanding of the world's wetland resources.
The meeting will be held in the Portland Convention Center with an expected attendance of 3000 professionals and students. The conference website will be available in early 2013 with the call for sessions announced by the end of March 2013. For additional information please contact The Schneider Group at 254-776-3550 or by email atLacyKC@sgmeet.com."

USU's annual Spring Runoff Conference rolls this Tuesday and Wednesday April 9th-10th at the Eccles Conference Center. James is presenting a poster (345pm) on his work in the Snake River in either room 201, 203, 205 or 207. Choose your own adventure on that room. Nate will be giving a talk on riparian vegetation and environmental filters in the Columbia RIver Basin at 150pm in the Eccles Auditorium.
The full program is available: http://water.usu.edu/files/uploads/Spring_Runoff_Conference/SpringRunoffProgramPrint.pdf
Until Tuesday, be excellent to one another.

I want all of you to make the switch to backups and synchrnoization with our new http://etal.egnyte.com cloud server by no later than mid-January. We will cover this in our first lab group meeting for the semester.
In the meantime, I will send you each Egnyte invites, and please familiarize yourself with these pages, and complete the 1. Setting Up Egnyte.
