What is permissible collaboration?

I ran out of Disk Quota. What should I do?

Student accounts are initially allocated 5M of AFS disk quota on CIS machines. This is very limited especially if you are using Netscape which uses 4M for its cache. So, in order to be able to work on your SQL assignments and projects, you must request from the Help Desk of CSSD to increase your disk quota ASAP.
