  3. Edugeek Addiction!

    by , 22nd June 2011 at 02:11 PM
    Well it seems that I am now addicted well and truly to this website! I have always been a fan of collaborative websites with like minded people. Especially in the realms of IT there is just too much for any one person to know. I'm sure that most IT Proffesionals are with me when I say that the "One Man Army" effect which most "Pre Secondary School" IT Administrators exist in proves to be a real challenge.

    While I regard myself as a specialist in Windows Server ...

  5. AppV Updates...

    by , 21st June 2011 at 06:31 PM
    Ok, so after I left you all wondering on the AppV score - I thought it was about time to show where we had go to...

    Well - progress is good, very good! AppV (as if it needed any more ranting and raving) is a seriously cool piece of kit. Take this one problem... using CS4 on out ICT Suite machines and to bring in CS5 would bring a learning curve for staff and students alike. Well, what if you could run the two side by side. Normally, not a chance, but with AppV you can. CS4 sequences ...
  6. Apple. Love or loathe...

    by , 20th June 2011 at 10:30 PM
    I think most people are already well aware of my opinions of Apple as a company, and sometimes this also derides confusion as to whether I also "hate" their products too, so maybe a little detail without a thread are in order, for those that care to read.

    I have a HUGE amount of respect for a company that can get into that level of being, where their products' names are used synonymously (is that a word?) to describe larger groups of products in the same way that Hoover did. ...

  7. Can you ever have too much of a good thing?

    by , 20th June 2011 at 03:44 PM (Grumbledook's stuff!)
    Iíve recently been tracking down a number of web 2.0 tools to ensure I register / protect my online identity. I am known as Tony Sheppard and as GrumbleDook with such equality online that it is hard to separate the two. However, since there is a rather good Jazz musician called Tony Sheppard I have opted to protect my identity as GrumbleDook.

  8. Windows 7 Exam

    by , 17th June 2011 at 05:01 PM (Welcome to my blogs)
    well what can i say

    I hate Microsoft unfortunately this is my 3rd attempted at my windows 7 70-680 exam and i got yet again a score of 646. I feel like Iím on one of them marathons where you "hit the wall". for the people are about to take the windows 7 exam donít take it lightly donít think it will be the same as the xp one because if you go into thinking that then you might as well put your money down the drain because it is hard and Iím not ashamed to admit that. ...
  9. Digital Blue cameras

    by , 16th June 2011 at 10:41 AM
    We have used the DigiBlue cameras for some years because of their excellent animation facility - the kids love it. But we are changing over to Win7 and as yet there are no drivers for them.
    Anyone got a recommendation for replacement camera??
  10. Pastures new, and time to start from scratch...

    by , 15th June 2011 at 04:25 PM
    So, yet again I find myself starting my blog with "Ive not written in ages, and here's why..."...!

    Well, first off - Ive moved workplaces. A number of you will already know that - but this blog is going to concentrate on essentially the setup of a new network on the side of the old one!

    Why did I move on? Well, after 5 years, all that could be achieved had been - and the system which Id written from scratch (ably assisted by my senior) was in a good state ...
