Lise Meitner

Thanks, Lise!

This year, we’re naming our Releases after important Women in STEM.

Our November Release is named after Lise Meitner (1878-1968), who worked on the team that discovered the nuclear fission of uranium and thorium. She is one of the most glaring examples of the Nobel committee’s lack of recognition of women in the sciences. Learn more about Lise Meitner.

Tuesday, June 28th from 10pm to midnight Central Time.

We’re updating our networking infrastructure to add even more resiliency, which necessitates a change in our IP addresses. During this time frame, SmarterU may be inaccessible briefly as the IP address change propagates.

For most of our clients, no changes will be necessary. However, please forward this post to your IT folks for them to review.

IT Folks! If any of the following is true, you may need to make a change:

  1. We are hosting a custom SSL certificate for you.
  2. You have a firewall rule setup to control access to your SmarterU account.

(If you are using a CNAME, then no change is necessary.)

Our new IP Addresses are as follows:

Domain                        Old IP        New IP
*.smarteru.com                206.45.45.3   216.55.210.3
