This message is regarding an important security issue.
As you may be aware, Microsoft discontinued support of their Windows XP Operating System as of April 8th, 2014. In addition, they have also discontinued support of the Internet Explorer browser, versions 6, 7, and 8 (as of January 12th, 2016). Due to the security issues raised by Microsoft’s discontinuation of these products, we find that we can no longer support users whose computers are running these products after May 15th, 2018. We ask that you take a moment to review your hardware and software and do an inventory of your personal technology. Your ability to submit projects could be at risk so please take the necessary precautions and / or update your technology as necessary.
