How much did you get stung for roaming charges though? I hear data is very expensive abroad!
Are you able to PM me this info as well?
Just to have a rough idea.
It'll be interesting to see how this latest generation of consoles match up as this is literally the closest they've ever been, architecture-wise, to x86 PCs. Historically though games consoles on launch have been massively more powerful and had much better graphics for the money than any equivalent PC of the time. I've owned a PC though every console generation from PSX though to the last gen and it's always amazed me how superior the console was next to PC's of the day. Even recently I recall playing games like PGR and Oblivion on my Xbox360 and there literally wasn't a PC you could buy (regardless of cost) that came close to it's 3D capabilities.
I'd also disagree on the cost of consoles being more expensive. The PlayStation 3 was £425 on launch and even the xbox360 was £280. Going back further most Sony/MS/Nintendo consoles have been launched at around £300. When you take inflation into account modern consoles are actually cheaper! I'd agree that the games are starting to get worryingly expensive though I remember PlayStation 1 games retailing for £40 and that was 15 years ago so £50 RRP now isn't as bad as it could be. I still remember paying £65 for Streetfighter2 when it was released in 1993.
Granted Steam sales make everything else look ridiculously expensive but honestly gaming has never been cheaper if you ask me!

@sccmlovehate glad that i could help. Microsoft support didn't have a clue what was going on either so you are not alone. It took me a good while to fix it.
Thanks very much for posting about SCCM on Server 2012! You just save me another week of pain and suffering. We are running SCCM on Server 2008R2 but we recently upgraded our main DP to Server 2012. We had 5 out of 30 brand new machines throw the hash error (0x80091007) and we could not figure out what the heck was going on. I just flipped the NIC over to VMXNET3 and we are all good now. Thanks again!!
For deleting all profiles from anyware remotly (local or roaming multiple or for one user ) you can check out this site (I tried it myself and it's perfect ) -- TS Roaming Profile Cleaner Software - Download free network administration software - TS-ADMIN
there is also a Microsoft tool called CSVDE which will allow you to create users from a CSV file but it's a bit long-winded to use...
Looks good - however if you create a user in AD and give the profile and home folder values like
\\SERVER\USERS\%USERNAME% and apply group memberships etc
then when you need to create a new user, simply copy that user and it will do all the work for you

Hopefully some of you have found them useful this academic year, at least!

This Dropbox blog post and its xkcd comic say everything about picking a secure password in the modern age, we just need technology to allow for it – https://tech.dropbox.com/2012/04/zxc...th-estimation/

Thanks for this Matthew, a very quick and useful reply. FROGos seems to be turning out ok and there are lots of useful and more easily adaptable elements to it, than Frog 3.
Will keep you posted of our trial,
The refresh issue is due to FrogOS being a browser based platform, so if you refresh the browser itself, it will override whatever Frog is doing.
A few other Schools have hidden the tool bar completely with F11, to reduce the chances of refreshing the page (but this is just a short term fix) it wouldn't eradicate pressing f5 though.
I think we are looking at getting FrogOS to save the state of the platform, in case you accidentally refresh the page. So when it loads up again, you will be exactly at the same point (with all the applications you had open too). Also, maybe adding a refresh button on the Frog Page itself would make it a better user experience (in case the page crashes).
I've shared this feedback with others at Frog for now, and I hope you're enjoying FrogOS apart from that issue.
Community Manager, Frog
Superb, just what I need!

Sadly they stripped DVD codecs from Win 8 without paying a ransom so that hurts using it for DVD playback.
You could use VLC but your average consumer won't bother with that.
Hear hear. I've been arguing much the same in the PS4 thread
Steam has made my PC life simpler than my PS3 life. New game to install? Click download and Steam sets it up. Updates? Steam downloads it in the background. Even in Windows - I can't remember the last time my whole system was brought to its knees by a crash. At worst, the game itself crashes to desktop, which is rare. My 360 and PS3 have frozen in the past as well.
When the PS3 wants to update, all of a sudden my system is completely useless until I agree to the update. Games and services that worked fine yesterday suddenly absolutely require the new update to work. Not even Windows Updates whinges so much! And should I forgot the PS3's incredibly sensitive nature and - shock horror - just click it off at the socket, I get whinged at next time I turn it on and asked to do a disk check.
The one advantage of console gaming is meant to be ease of use. That's been completely eroded, from both directions.
rabble! rabble! rabble! [I agree.]
