    • Announcing a new 100GB disk space available for every user and can be accessed at /common/users/your_netid. See  Storage and Technology Options for more info. (July 30, 2018)
    • Please logout after using. If you don't logout, your X2Go or Remote Desktop session will be terminated and all unsaved work will be lost. If you would like to resume with the same session at a later time, open a terminal and type: echo 5 > /var/run/user/$uid/KeepSession Number 5 means you get 5 hours to get back to it. The maximum time you can set is 36 hours.  You need to redo the above command to extend the time. (July 26,2018)
