    How does the cost compare?

    It's all well and good saying these screens are better, but if they're too expensive I doubt a lot of places could afford them.

    I know we probably couldn't. [I saw one priced at nearly £3000. I don't know if this is cheap or expensive.]

    Given the choice between upgrading desktops and installing a gimmick, I think I'd upgrade the desktops...

    Try what they've given you with "ftp." in front of it

    Also may be worth going back to that tool and checking the settings you did, as I can 100% vouch for it working (on the old website it was flash, images, css, javascript) and it got the lot (although I had to change settings, perhaps if you PM me the web address).

    It's funny you mentioned cats, as in the printers' district of pre-revolutionary Paris, a series of ritualistic murders of cats took place, which were apparently caused by printers' apprentices who were fed up of the way they were being treated by their masters.
    I'm not saying murdering cats is a viable alternative to striking, I'm just saying it happened.

    I have already tried this with this software package but it misses out the images and some of the pages from our site so i dont know exactly where the stuff is stored or how the crawler works as it is all in the same web directory. i suspect some of them are linked in by a CSS sheet some where to be honest.

    also they are supposed to be supplying me with ftp access but as of yet they have only given me a username and password and when i asked what the server address was he gave me the name of his web hosting company. is it me or has some one lost the plot.

    Hi,

    If it's just a plain old site you can just run a webcrawler to download all the css/html files then reupload on new host..

    HTTrack Website Copier - Free Software Offline Browser (GNU GPL) is what I had used when I had to do it at my old school.

    Thanks, John

    Guess it depends on how critical back up is to your business. Worth looking at your business model or infrastructure. There may be other areas where you can streamline and save costs to which you can get a better back up system.

    Great when you've got the money Our budget is next to nothing; at least, it's no difference when we need to get rid of every single OS on site, replace a great chunk of computers and buy in servers & licensing, than it was last year or the year before when just ticking over. The saving of circa £2k per server was more than enough. Besides, going with intel-everything except the RAID cards thanks to availability gives us the same sort of reliability and warranties.

    Some cracking progress though this week despite it being very broken up (day and a half out supporting primaries) with nailing DFS replication, solving a small issue with AD replication not being instant - didn't realise the minimum time for replication between AD sites is 15 minutes, but a small tweak put that back to same-site default of up to 5 seconds. AD structure is *finished*, all security groups *finished*. Base GPOs *finished*. Base Windows 7 image with Chrome and Office 2010 *finished* Some "nice" customisations like school logo for logon pictures done. Libraries cracked and pointing to the right places, many thanks to this cracking post : http://www.edugeek.net/forums/window...ding-wiki.html
    Attempted to sort out the KMS host for Office 2010 licensing but it's got some stupid thing where you can't actually even test it with less than 5 clients trying to activate. Back end is done at least.
    Had to remove and reapply the distribution point on Server 2 due to it using the C: drive as a secondary package/source location so I could force it to the specified drive but no big deal.

    Next week - importing a large batch of users (Year 13's are a great batch to play with as the majority have left now!) to test with. Just need to script shares/DFS structure.

    Ouch. That's why I just buy servers off the shelf from Dell. Certified to work with zero problems just pop the ESXi CD in and 10 mins later your done.

    Also Veeam Backup free edition is great for quickly making ad hoc backups or even ad hoc migrating VMs between servers. I am loving it for £0!!!

    Don't worry. I know what to do.

    All the resources, game screens and what-not, will be hosted online. You can't play the game without a constant internet connection.

    All I.P addresses will be logged. A DNA sample will be required for registration.


    As for DLC... I'm going to take a leaf out of Steam's book. There will be HATS! LOTS AND LOTS OF HATS!

    Except they're masks and not hats.... Possibly a mask that IS a hat. [But, seriously... I can't draw faces... or hands.]
