Ok – so, most of you know I love System Centre products – and after getting SCCM (System Centre Configuration Manger) setup nicely (I will blog on this, as lots of people seem to have a problem getting this up and running in less than a day) – it was time to play with its partner in crime SCOM (System Centre Operations Manager). Introduction
What exactly is Operations Manager? Well, it revolves around an agent on the computer to be monitored. The agent watches that computer,
When you output dates in SIMS with the Reporting tool, the results will come out as text and cannot be converted into a proper date with the number format window. This is a fix used in the SIMS Standard Portrait template to prevent Excel from throwing a fit and entering the data incorrectly. You can modify the template and remove the fix but that is best left to advanced users, there is a simpler option.
Let's take a date in the format "1 March 2012" in cell C2. You can
The last article covered some of the rationale and an overview - this is a bit more of the "how to". Remember, there are two elements to MySite – the first showing your feed, all activity from your linked people (a la friends). The second, your profile.
Now – the problem comes with the logic behind setting this up. In Education – we tend to like everything being accessible through one entry point. This will usually be though a firewall or gateway device. MySites
When I first started writing on Edugeek, many will remember me as one of the Sharepoint gang. My more recent writings may have convinced some of you that I was less interested in it now…but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Sharepoint 2010 is a brilliant product – and one which could be put to great use in Schools and Colleges. The Rationale
As IT Professionals, we are constantly battling against the students (and the staff in some cases) with Social Networking. We are

This article is a continuation, and update on the changes made since the original article published earlier in the year.
A bit of background to start with… in Summer 2011, I started a big modernisation project at the Academy I took over at. When I started, we were still on Windows XP across the desktops. To take us to Windows 7 presented a problem – the specs of some machines prevented it. I had a significant number of Celeron 1.6’s and 1.9’s. Although I tested

Those are my two cats on the cake.
This has to be the most obnoxious printer I have used lately (with the exception of our new Ricoh at work but that's a photocopier and sits top of the evil hardware food chain automatically).
I can't think of any printer that will jam it's print jobs, make you so frustrated that you turn it off....then print what you wanted to when you turn it back on a week later. And it still refuses to print what you want to print even if you power cycle it.
This printer isn't just failing,

So, I've got all the VLAN in place ready for VOIP, just a few tweaks to be done to servers and stuff but nothing major. I'm still trying to nail down the exact QoS configuration but I've put that ball in the court of the supplier for now . I've got a 10 more Switches with PoE on order in places where we don't have the capacity.
Further discussions with the supplier states that the system needs to be able to Multicast, and with the Softphone feature on the desktops PCs it looks

1 day to go of work and I'm starting to drift into the random daydreams that make people believe I'm lazy...
I'm actually surprised it's started so late, though that may be because I've been focused on sorting out our sound and flash problems. [They're still not fully sorted out... mearly "close enough"]

For the past few years we have had some terrible snowfalls. For the most part it is further north this year with the south being mostly unaffected. Forecasts show a brief minor risk of snow flanked either side with rain and rather mild temperatures nearer Christmas.
So where is this snow? Seems to be plenty of gimmicks being punted by the advertisers.
I know people who have gone out buying snow shoe grips, snow chains, all sorts of stuff that you should use abroad in
