  2. Small Basic Application with Mandatory Profiles

    by , 21st November 2013 at 12:53 PM (Welcome to my blogs)
    This blog is to help people with problems with small basic

    when installing small basic as admin and all is fine you run the program test it out and it works brilliant I thought...NO! I'm wrong, as when you are logged in as a pupil and start to code it runs fine until you save the project and then you get a nice error about access denied.

    I thought that it could be an issue with group policy, so I move the user up and up the directory structure and tested and every ...

  3. Attainment vs National Average

    by , 19th November 2013 at 09:00 AM (The Progresso Geek)
    As an ex-teacher I remember having access to key information at the right time was always challenging. If I've entered the current assessment levels why can't I easily see it without having to navigate through the system?

    Well here's a widget that just might help with that.

    The Attainment vs National Average widget allows a user to select an assessment point (e.g. Year 4 / Autumn 1 / NC Level) and compares it to a specified level (e.g. National Average). The widget will ...

    We started roll out to the sixth form this September. For us we wanted students to use their own devices in the way they are used to using them, if they want to use pages on their mac, then fine, if they use evernote on an android tablet that is fine. Being comfortable and knowing how to perform a task on software and a device is for us a positive thing, if a student can do a task in five minutes

    by , 6th November 2013 at 12:25 PM (And so, our story begins...)
    Attachment 21360

    Path of shadows is a game made by 5 students at IDEC - Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

    Character design

    The game is set in a nondescript, unnamed, seemingly ancient Japanese town, which has been presented in cell shaded visuals. It looks beautiful and goes to show that hyper realism isn't the only option. The game ...

  8. Obscurities: A startup script to update Securus clients

    by , 4th November 2013 at 01:03 PM
    If you run Securus on your network, you'll occasionally need to update your client to resolve some daft issue. Whilst the client comes as an MSI - very helpful - it's a pain to do anything with because of the way Securus runs.

    The MSI's have different product codes, so running the new MSI doesn't upgrade or overwrite the old install, it just installs alongside, and the old version seems to take precedence. Depending on how your original install was pushed out, you may not be able ...

  9. Obscurities - PCI card preventing POST / boot

    by , 4th November 2013 at 12:44 PM
    This post is intended purely for future Google warriors, as it took me a while to track down and I know, from my struggles, that there isn't much discussion of the issue.

    Whilst building a home theater PC for a friend earlier in the year, I hit a roadblock with the PC TV Tuner - everytime the card was installed in the system, the computer completely refused to boot.
