Getting Youtube for Schools to work is something that is either easy, or an extreme PITA; which is entirely dependent upon what you use for a proxy. If you're reading this, then you know Squid falls in the ladder of those two scenarios.
There are two ways to go about doing it: adding a custom HTTP header, or rewriting the URL on the fly. The cleanest way is using the custom HTTP header, but as of Squid 3.1 it doesn't natively support adding custom headers. You can only change existing

It's that time of the year again when I have to start looking at disabling spell check on Word for various Mock Exams. If only Wordpad had headers and footers, I wouldn't need to go through this every year...
Anyway, having updated to Office 2010 over the summer, my previous group policy objects aren't going to work with Office 2010, so time for a new way of doing things.
First of all, I'll credit the website where I got the info, and feel free to follow them rather than my
Basically we are looking into getting SIMS and we are wondering if anyone has any experience of running SIMS on a virtual server, Pros and Cons?
The server we will be using is a file server will this cause any issues such as overloading?
Shutting down Windows 7 has been a bit of a bug bear, with some PCs refusing to shut down, or settings not quite working the way I wanted them to. In an ideal world, I wanted a situation where computers would attempt to shutdown at 3.15, and only stay on if someone was using it. The PC would then wait until 10 minutes after it had gone Idle, then shut itself down. In reality, the first part usually worked fine, the second part, not so much.
My preferred method of shutting down is
Ok, so I think people who follow my work often will know that Im a bit of a fan of the whole System Centre thing (yes - I know ive spelt System Centre properly, not the American "Center" that gets used everywhere!).
You see, Configuration Manager - formerly Systems Management Server has always been a winner for me; but the real power now comes if you extend the stort by combining the elements of the suite together. System Centre is designed so that its components share information

2) Go to Configuration > Add-ins > Web filters and go to the properties of "Headers Modifier" > Parameters > Add
3) Name the rule
Haven't blogged for a while, but like too when I get one of those 'I didn't realise that' moments.....
We've got a number of Visually Impaired kids here at the school, who make use of the Magnifer built into Windows 7. I've got them in a seperate security group which switches on an extra folder in the Start Menu giving access to the Ease of Access tools. Always thought it worked well, select magnifier and a docked version of the application runs. However, I was informed today that
Well, I know its been a long time since my last published blog post! The truth is Ive been working on a few for a while now - but just never got round to finishing any of them.
Heres the first of my next batch... a return to an earlier thread of posts, originally related to Printing on Remote Desktop.
First, a bit of background... traditionally, most systems will be set up to map printers via a logon script. The script typically checks a machine name and adds the appropriate
After reading last months PC Pro, I wanted to investigate www.codeacademy.com and see if it would work with our teaching.
First issue with codeacademy is that it doesn't like IE and flatly refuses to play ball with it. One option is to install Chrome across the site, but I'd had issues getting Chrome to play ball with my network before, and wasn't too keen on trying again. So I choose option 2, install Google Frame. Installing it locally was easy, but a network install could prove
I would just some information on the differences between the SIMS Learning Gateway (SLG) and TASC Insight.
Is it possible to do the same with Insight as with the SLG?
Which do people prefer (opinions)?
User Friendliness, Which seems better?
Any problems with either that people have noticed?
Any limitations which people have noticed between the two?
I know this is a lot of information been asked for, but we
