Do you maintain a personal website (e.g., http://www.tc.umn.edu/~x500/) on the U's servers? If so, this message from OIT is for you:
Personal web space is scheduled to be decommissioned on June 30, 2013. In preparation for the decommission, new personal web space folders no longer will be created, effective Dec. 31. A plan to offer an alternate service has been initiated, and further information on a new service will be forthcoming as the plans progress. Meantime, users with personal web space needs should use NetFiles, beginning Jan. 1, 2013. Existing personal web space users will receive additional information in the coming weeks.
