5. TROUBLE-SHOOTING. Oops! Despite reading the directions, etc. etc., you are still having trouble getting on Motet. The person to contact is Lucy Lynch in the Computing Center. She runs Motet. Her e- mail is llynch.darkwing.uoregon.edu, and her phone is 346-1774. If you have trouble with Motet and can't post a journal entry, you can switch to a low-tech journal for that week and then return to Motet when the problem is solved.
