Speakers may bring their own laptops for their talks. If you plan to use your
own laptop, please make sure you have any adapters you need. We will be using
VGA connectors, so make sure you have the proper adapter to connect your machine
to that type of cable. We will also have some spare adapters, but we have a
limited supply. Also, please make sure you have your laptop power supply on hand
for your talk.
We also suggest having a back-up of your talk on a USB stick that we can load on
to one of our machines as a fall-back in the event of a problem with your laptop.
Anyone who wishes to use UT Astronomy laptops for their presentation is welcome
to do so. Here are the basic specs for those machines:
We will also have a USB remote clicker (with built-in red laser pointer) on hand
as well as a green laser pointer.
