    B.O.S.S.

    What is the point in having an online system for students to register for classes, pay fees, view their schedules / holds, IF IT IS GOING TO BE OFFLINE DURING THE TIMES IT IS MOST NEEDED, AND NOT EVEN WORKING HALF THE TIME WHEN IT IS SUPPOSED TO!!!???

    Does anybody else think B.O.S.S. is set up to have maintenance during the MOST inopportune times? And why does it need to be down 6 times a day?!

    UGH!!!!!

    What great memories. Waiting in line. The thrill of getting to be the first ones to get your cards and the pure panic when you are near the last and have to work your schedule on the fly.

    I feel bad for students these days....the old manual registering was fun. It was a week with no school and all students were on campus...a great time for partying.

    When I was a Tech I too thought it was ridiculous how the datacenter shuts down mid-day. I doubt they put any overtime in their job. Either they are a lazy IT department or understaff...things needs to improve.

    I work in IT and do software installation or maintenance at midnight or later. It's a no-no to be down during business hours.

    You posted that at 12:01 the day that classes started. So that means you either weren't signed up for classes or didn't know where and when they were. No sympathies.

    Actually the time posted is irrelevant. I already had all the information I needed. I was wanting to look up something else on my BOSS account, and it was not available when it was scheduled to be.

    P.S. I really don't care whether or not I have your sympathy.

    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    They claim the downtime is for database management, but it would be simple to automatically update the database at any given time, at a time that is not during business hours.

    I agree that BOSS is down a lot and seems to go down during the peak times. I'll bet it was really cheap though.
