Notes on use Cart must be plugged in 2 ways Into network drop (maybe 2 network drops!) Into electrical outlet Wireless networking is slower than wired Range of wireless is >200 feet*, but performance decreases as distance increases
Notes on use Buildings work out own schedule, usually with Media Clerk Suggestion: reserve it for half-day periods with your neighbors to reduce moving it. (Moving it every hour is too much hassle.) Use of cart isnt mandated, but training is.
