EECS rooms calendar - for EECS, MIT users only
The EECS Rooms Calendar is for MIT users (with certificates).  Please note that the rooms calendar system is not compatible with Firefox 4 or higher.  Use another browser or if you feel brave do the following adjustment to your computer:  In the Firefox location bar, enter about:config and press return.  You will get a warning about voiding the warranty (nerd humor :-). Leave the "Show this warning next time" box checked and click the "I'll be careful, I promise" button. You'll get a window with ALL of the configuration options for Firefox.  In the filter box, type in "security.ssl.renego_unrestricted_hosts" in order to see that entry.  Double click that and in the drop down sheet enter in and click OK.  At this point you can go to the EECS Room Reservation website and make your reservation.
