Issues began last spring semester when some students were unable to register properly. The problems are being dealt with as fast as college staff and computer consultants can manage, said Ricardo Perez, vice president of student affairs.

The City Council unanimously approved the project Tuesday. Director of Information Services Department Ed Fraga said all the glitches with the EdgeSoft software, known as City Services Interface, have been fixed, and since Nov. 2009, it has been fully functional.

Larry Hanson was in his Silver Lake home with his wife and 2-year-old daughter when Neil Armstrong made his historical walk on the moon. An aspiring teacher, who instead was poached by IBM because “they needed warm bodies,” Hanson was eventually assigned to an account that would garner a 500-million-person live audience around the world. In 1969, with his eyes glued to the television, he witnessed history that he and his colleagues at IBM helped create. “I had no idea what a computer was before I was hired by IBM,” said Hanson, 74. Ten years later, he managed the creation of Information Management System, a database software that helped North American Rockwell, organize the 2 million individual parts of the Apollo spacecraft.
