Well, I said I was going to BETT and here I am blogging about it. Thanks to LickOfPaint for the comment - I remember going to BETT a couple of years ago and joining Edugeek as a result. I have been using it for hints and tips and to find out info. about certain things, but had never blogged before. So, I was glad to see your comment - thanks!
So - BETT was, as ever, exciting, inspiring and a good event where I was able to see the latest gadgets and gizmos for my classroom. I
A forum post got me to thinking about a script to parse DHCP logs to notify someone when a particular MAC checks in with the server.

This script will also keep a log of its own to prevent multiple email messages for the same log entry it finds. I've run this in a production environment with an internally hosted Exchange server and it works.

Apologies for the lateness on this one, real life rather got in the way this end. I've just managed to send out a tip round here, so it's time I posted another one up here for your pleasure.
This one follows on quite closely from last week's tip on pinning shortcuts to the Start Menu; this week it's ICT Tip 029 - Recent Documents in Win7.doc. The thinking being that you can pin your most used applications, then pin the most used documents in that application.
We noticed that a number of

Excel doesn't have a built-in Box and Whisker chart type, but it's possible to make something similar-looking using a Stock chart.
I have created a PDF detailing how to do this:
Well, today I visited the BETT show at Excel in London and, as a result, today I joined EduGeek.
I wonder what other BETT show visitors made of it?
I made a beeline for and particularly enjoyed the event 'Technology and How We Learn' where Armand D'Angour, Bette Chambers and Susan Greenfield gave us their take on what 'educational software/programming' ought to be aiming for. Highly though provoking.
Brave and outspoken, I particularly enjoyed Bette Chambers (Uni York and
A departure from my normal blog topics to something even more relevant to a lot of schools than my normal writings. Introduction
SIMS is a School Management database, written and supported by Capita Education Services. 6 months has passed since I was invited to join Capita at their Annual Conference to see and write about forthcoming changes, as well as report back on the year (and ask the awkward questions from the community).

I'm the network manager in a school in hertfordshire and have been for 6 years - Now moving into the iPad area requested by teachers is a challenge in themselves! just how do you add in a piece of technology designed for single user to a windows network!

Well, my first post on my Edugeek blog!! I have had the account since January 2010 and never even knew there was a Blogging platform, built in to the site!
I have loved Edugeek and its forums / blogs since I went to BETT in January 2010 (hence joining then!), and I am currently mega-excited (yes, I know, a little sad!) about BETT this year, as I am going up on Thursday.
What makes it better this year, is that I am taking a group of Year 13 BTEC students with me!
I woke up this morning and thougt to myself when will it end. Working as a ICT Tech in a school is great but it looks like I may have do do more Outgoings (food fuel gas electric mortgage)- doing nice things = still cant afford to live.
Gas prices keep going up petrol keeps going up cost of living keeps going up wages stay the same.
My parter told me to sell myself I told her none would buy a body like this lol.
Never mind off to earn some more penny's.
This post is a continuation of my battle to compelte a cohesive intranet; and some more ramblings about Sharepoint. Its turned into a monster of a project this one.

Not ideal - internally we wanted a double SSO which would use your Active Directory logon session to SSO with the TMG HTTP session.
