Linux compute nodes and desktop machines will be rebooted on Thursday, January 14th for software and security updates. These updates will be applied to machines between 7:00 pm and midnight. In an effort to try and minimize any corrupted files or lost work, please save all your data and log out of any Linux systems before 7:00 pm.

The following is a list of machines that already have the updates, so you may test any critical packages or code beforehand:
