Thanks for the article, good read. It might be also worth looking at this thread, it highlights a flaw in firevault. - http://www.edugeek.net/forums/securi...log-files.html
Let me clarify something, is this what the sheet looks like?
A=Activity | B=Start | C=End | D=Week 1 | E=Week 2| F=Week 3 | G=Week 4 | etc.
Project 1 | 2 | 4 | (blank) | 1 | 1 | 1 |
And you want 1's in the relative week column depending on the input in start and end?
I always have my "I love computers" mug on my desk (always use it as a pen/stationary tidy), A sign on the back of my monitors which they see as soon as they walk in saying "Shhhh! Genius at work!" and a nice little sign with a cirlce saying "Bang head here" (Edugeek has a branded one IIRC somewhere)
Good luck in your new role, im sure you will love it! Mart
Your head sounds awesome.

Oh God... So much this.
I think ALL of our computers are licenced for Fista. [bar the few licenced for Win7]
But, we can't use it... apparently I'd be personally liable for £1/4million...

I renember reading somewhere the license is to that board so if you transfer the mobo (if thats not the faulty part) you can transfer the license?

New RAID card I think
We sue cheap Adaptec ones here which only cost 50 quid.
Don't you just love it when you install new hardware excitedly and snap a rare capacitor off a few-hundred pounds worth of RAID card?
The RM thing is very subjective though - for primary schools with no permanent IT presence, I still don't personally believe you can beat CC4 for it's ease of use and management; of course there are many threads on here about that very subject. Each school will have their own requirements of course.
With SCCM for us, I don't think it's bloated at all - the bulk of the client package installed on the workstations is Forefront endpoint protection which is, IME damned slight better than anything else I've seen. The only additional bulk therefore is on the server; we have of course looks at doing it plain, we're all well versed in GPO and AD management (who isn't!) and part of our network currently is vanilla in such a way, but having 2 sites that are a fair distance apart it just gives us the edge. There's no additional cost for it and better still, again on the split-site subject one thing a vanilla network can't do without some serious setup and implementation time/costs is manage the bandwidth for software/update deployments etc. Not really an issue for a single site setup with a decent network infrastructure but our intersite link does show signs of strain. Biggest test will be mass deployment this summer
I'm rather jealous Would love a big project like this to get my teeth into.
Good choice to ditch RM, its not needed these days and just an extra cost.
Interested you are using SCCM 2012, it just seems far too bloated to be useful for me. We manage our vanilla network fine without it.
Let us know how you get on.

Ours is a Sonic Wall SSL-VPN 4000 which alows for way more users simultaneously connecting than we ever get but the Head at the time insisted on it thinking that maybe three clesses would try to login remotely at the same time!. I have never seen more than 12 users on at once!
It was supplied as a remote access solution by a company but for some reason we did not buy the firmware upgrades which I regret now.
In the job i work at one of the first jobs what’s to buy one. We purchased ours for £1,800. This included the physical box, licenses, support for 3 years and 3 years upgrades. We got them from Kelway. I am not sure how much it would cost you to get the new firmware.
What appliance do you have?
