We release a new version of Virtual DICE twice a year. This version has the hostname tiepolo. It has most of the same software as DICE machines.
If you have an earlier version of Virtual DICE you should upgrade to the new version. To do that, make backup copies of whatever files you want to keep (for example, copy them to your AFS home directory – and here’s how to access AFS from Virtual DICE) then shut down and delete your Virtual DICE version, then install the new tiepolo version instead.
