Retiring domain

Please be aware that in the near future – sometime in the Fall – we will be retiring the domain.  This does not mean we are retiring the central Google CSE search; it will still be available at

The domain is a holdover from previous iterations of the campus search, and has been largely unused for some time.  I looked through log files and it is getting very little traffic compared to For the sake of reducing maintenance and overhead, we have made the decision to remove the service from that URL.

So those of you who still do have a search box that points to, please go ahead and start migrating the code for your forms.  I will let you know once we have a firm shut-off date.

University Calendar Scheduled Maintenance

We are scheduling a brief outage of the university calendar for Sunday (May 30) afternoon in order to perform updates to the base application code.  If the process goes smoothly the downtime will be minimal, but is unfortunately unavoidable.

Event information will remain available during this time on the mobile calendar view. I plan to set up a redirect from the main calendar to this site so that visitors will still be able to view events rather than getting a blank or broken page.

Once this maintenance is completed we will select and announce another weekend to update the mobile calendar as well.

Calendar Maintenance – Thursday

Our maintenance window for the campus calendar has moved to Thursday morning.  Again, we hope the system will experience minimal downtime, but please be aware that a worst case scenario could leave the site unavailable for the early morning.

Calendar Maintenance

Yesterday we completed a bit of maintenance on the Campus Calendar to bring our code back in line with the latest updates from UNL.  Most of this was back-end functionality changes, but if you do see something that is acting differently please let us know and we’ll make sure it wasn’t a migration issue.

Please excuse our mess…

For those of you who might have visited the blog earlier this morning, you caught us in the middle of an upgrade that didn’t go as smoothly as expected.  But we’re back now, and better than ever.  We have made a few tweaks and added a few plugins. The changes are subtle but should help us create a better service for the camups community.
