Heritage Corner Kiosk Upgrade – Thanks Kurt

The  Heritage Corner is a key element of the Heritage Project, the final phase of the Champions Campaign. Thanks to advances in windows operating systems, we were able to create a website that provided information to friends and alumni during the final phase of the Champions Campaign, and then migrate that website onto a large wall-mounted PC that now serves as an interactive kiosk overlooking the pool.

When first installed in 2015 the PC had access to the website, but was not really functioning reliably as a stand-alone, “bullet proof” kiosk.  With the release of Windows 10 and its “kiosk mode” we had the technology to provide that capability.

Enter Addison Kaufman’s father Kurt, whose background in IT and willingness to reconfigure the PC while in town for the Magnus Cup resulted in “Heritage Corner Kiosk 2.0”.  WAY TO GO KURT !  With the swimming & diving season upon us this kiosk will provide a visible and efficient way for parents, team members and visitors to share 9 decades of Fenn/CSU Swimming and Diving Heritage when in The Robert F. Busbey Natatorium.

If you happen to be checking out the Heritage Corner and the PC is not up and running, follow these three steps:

  1. Push the power-on button – located on the lower right side of the PC.
  2. Log on using the “kiosk” option – one of three options available
  3. Enter the password – Enter the following password: ” Excellence In All We Do ! 31 ”    (All One word, no spaces,  CASE SENSITIVE)

That will start the kiosk running, and will cycle through the half dozen most recent blogs.  It will turn off automatically after 3 hours of inactivity

And speaking of the Magnus Cup, what a great sight to see bleachers and pool filled with swimmers, parents, friends and alumni for this fifth annual edition of the Magnus Cup held November 18-20. img_0455-full-house
