Caltech Human Resources is once again sponsoring the annual Adopt an Angel Program, which provides holiday gifts for children of poverty-level families in the San Gabriel Valley area.
Come to the Human Resources office between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. to pick up a decorated paper angel bearing the name of a needy child, along with his or her special wish list, age, clothing size, and interests. Unwrapped gifts with the paper angel attached are to be delivered to the Human Resources office by Tuesday, December 6.
The Angel Program is affiliated with the Foothill Unity Center, a nonprofit organization that provides critical support in the form of food, clothing, motel vouchers, referrals, and advocacy for people in crisis who reside in the San Gabriel Valley area.

The Unix interactive cluster (its.caltech.edu) will soon be retired. These long-running Solaris systems will be replaced by new Linux systems, which will run concurrently for a brief transition period. Starting May 2, 2016, IMSS will make changes to users' dot files to minimize compatibility issues with the new Linux systems. Changes will be completed over a period of approximately one week and are detailed at http://imss.caltech.edu/content/unix-cluster-transition.
