All my computers on WSUS are currently sitting in Unassigned apart from the Servers which has worked quite well - until now.
I want to control the Roll Out of XP SP3 to computers so that I can make my way arround them using WSUS without cause people any major problems because someone shuts the computer down, it starts to install and then the computer is needed for the next lesson.
The Answer I thought - create a sub group of computers!
One snag - Unassigned

Well, this book is becoming quite a chore. I was initially drawn to the book because of large number of its quotes sprinkled throughout the net. It seems to be one of those modern classics which everybody should read.
Perhaps it is, but I find the characters cold and one dimensional. They seem to be a vehicle for Rand's political views, which on the face of it seem to have some merit, but recent events have proven laissez faire market forces immoral and prone to implode. I haven't even

Today we did a real world test on our Windows 7 system.
We've built a ICT Suite that is due to come on-line this September and invited 5 students to come in and try it out. I moved their accounts temporarily into the OUs we have setup for Windows 7 and moved them to the appropriate Security Groups and got them to log in. Sophos was installed and running, along with Impero V3.0.38 and we're still using CSE but not using their Workspace, purely using the CSE System to build and administer

It also keeps track of when an ID was printed (so, if you're doing 700 of them and only get 200 done in a day, you can see where you're up to).
It is set up to work with our Magicard Tempo printer,
To my local newsagent, please correctly label your sandwiches. When I buy a tuna and sweetcorn sandwich I expect tuna and sweetcorn as a filling, not for half the tuna to be replaced with shredded cabbage. If the sandwich was labelled "Tuna and Cabbage with Occasional Flecks of Sweetcorn" I would have left it on the shelf.
And thus, a rants category is born on the blog.
I've just posted a new article about how to get the DigiBlue camera to work for stop motion animation in Ubuntu Linux.
As the DigiBlue cameras are very Windows oriented, I decided to try and get one to work in a similar fashion in Ubuntu. Sadly, the process isn't quite as fluid but it is a lot more flexible as there are a plethora of software packages available for stop motion editing and video editing, some being ultra-simple (Luciole), others being more complex (Cinelerra).

I got a phone call from a PR agency this morning. We usually get a few of these a week, often via email. Apparently he was looking fro Russ as he'd spoken to him at BETT, so I let him know that Russ was not here, and I was. He then began giving me the 'sell', askign who represented us etc. After a few mins I had to pop the question.
'Do you know who we are?'
Do you know what we do?'
'Do you know why we don't need
A while ago, I recall Angry Technician discussing how he had a chronic case of "The Ear," an ability to walk past any machine, stop and instinctively know something is wrong and require fixing.
I had such an episode today dealing with tick grids for the end of year process in SIMS. I believe they call it curriculum assignment but after a while, hours of ticking boxes against a list causes the brain to melt slightly and simplify the entire system down to "Tick Grids."

... and is no longer pursuing a career in IT. I've now been self employed for nearly a year now. Going freelance which involves writing, blogging and selling on ebay.
I still have a passing interest in IT to keep my eye in. I enjoy reading the tales of IT support whether it be educational or business support.
Even dabbled in the world of static security guarding for a while.

I've finally got round to getting the KMS Server setup ready for when we start our Windows Deployment in a few weeks. It's a bit odd that you can setup a KMS on a Windows 2003 Server and a Windows 2008R2 server but not a Windows 2008 Server! Not if you want to activate Windows 7 Clients!!! My domain consists of a number of 2008 Servers and a 2003 SP2 Domain
