    As CP's resident orangutang, I've got to agree- have gone Ape at Woburn several times and am a big fan of their work. Agreed on the jump offs, can get a bit of harness squeeze if leg loops aren't tight enough!

    Oh Facebook has a mention on here already regarding adverts.

    Did they close the loophole where sending a piece of the old machine effectively transferred the OEM licence too? E-Bayers used to ship old components like the network card for free with the licence + disk but this was a long time ago back in the Win 2000 days.

    Hi - sorry didn't see this, Im not getting the alert emails from blog comments. No, SCCM/WDS will only boot PXE if its own provider is set up. So - just installing the role isn't enough to take over the other software. Im guessing FOG? This is what I did - just disabled the PXE service when I wanted to carry on using FOG.

    Hi,

    I have just been skimming over your posts. At the moment we use another bit of software that uses PXE to image computers. If i install WDS on a server but do not configure when a client PXE boots will it boot into WDS?

    Thanks

    This is how ad-sense works. [in my experience]

    Fits quite well in Categories:Rants then.

    This is a rant but not in support of Google but in derision of the media and it's normal screwed up hysteria.

    Since the TOS update, it uses Web History in the Google panel to deliver ads. Since I wiped and disabled that feature on my account, it has confused it somewhat.

    I'm not sure if it still does it, but google used to pretty much rip what you search for and stick it into an ad. [or it uses similar words]

    So, sometimes you end up with ads to "Buy slaves" if you're searching something to do with slavery.


    Then you have the age-old "Meet women online" style ads when you search for WoW.

    Is there a way of getting the results back for an OU in Active Directory so rather than idividually targetting the machines we can pull a classroom list back?

    I'm kind of really interested... Mainly because I want to know what courses to avoid.

    But also because I'm a nerd and, as such, am interested.
