Molly Hansen

Richard Timbo

Richard Timbo (IT Customer Relations and Process Management): My computer took on a mind of its own and chose to get rid of my drives and calendars, and when I restarted it, it decided not to open my Outlook and made everything else so big that I couldn’t find anything. It was like being in an AI horror movie. It might have been amusing, except it happened at the most inopportune time when I was fixing an issue and needed my email and calendar the most. Luckily, Richard Timbo at the Purdue IT Service Desk was able to remote in and fix everything really quickly. He was very helpful and so nice. He had me laughing and calmed down in a matter of minutes, and he wasn’t judgmental when everything I said had disappeared was magically there. Thank you, Richard! I appreciate your help! It’s always good when someone can help you see the funny side of things! – Rhonda Haan (College of Agriculture Administration) 

Ted Fondak

Ted Fondak (College of Education Administration): Thumbs-up to Ted, who is always willing to help with technical issues. He was so kind and helpful, and we figured out the solution to the problem! Thank you, Ted! – Leslie Sigg (Educational Studies)
