How to force Users out of Sims.net KB88695
THIS SOLUTION CANNOT BE USED FOR HOSTED SQL INSTANCES
The following workaround will terminate any current connections to the SIMS SQL Instance, and if users are actually using SIMS .net, this will force them out.
Any unsaved changes will be lost.
Year 13 chose today as their "muck-up day" as the pupils call it. Hence the current sights of Post-It notes declaring how we are going to miss them (amongst other messages) scattered accross the whole school. I'm not kidding either, every wall in every corridor and room accessible to the pupils are scattered with Post-It notes. It's like a tornado of sticky bits of paper whisked through the school over Period 1 and as fast as they come down, the walls are covered again.
I spotted a little quirk today in Assessment Manager that anyone using it for reporting should be aware of. Over time, staff members will change and the Marksheets that have been assigned will slowly become out of date. In our case, a baby boom amongst the staff population led to a large number of maternity cover teachers being employed and thus assigned to the now teacherless classes.
This lead to the Marksheets that were assigned at the start of term to be out of date and still
Our Windows 7 Testing is continuing. Testing is going well and so far so good. A few little issues to be resolved by third party software suppliers which I'm hoping will be fixed soon.
Had an issue with a new Dell Optiplex 380 that wasn't playing nice with WDS, but Fatmas seems to have fixed that now.
Office 2010 has been released to Volume customers, so I'd thought I'll take a look and see wether or not including Office 2010 in our Windows 7 deployment would be an
If using 802.11g then 30 - 35 clients could be connecting using Ruckus as long as the encryption is set to AES and not TKIP, this can be an unmanaged AP and then a controller could be added later to make this into a managed device with multiple AP's being used.
Ruckus use beamforming, which mitigates sources of interference which in turn keeps a signal to noise ratio (SNR) at a gain for clients connections resulting in much more reliable concurrent client connections.
When I went to attempt registration of Visual Studio Express 2010, Microsoft had the forethought to ensure everyone was included in the list of roles in the company. Even "that guy in every company who knows computer-based stuff and does it when he probably shouldn't be" is included.
I've posted another article about creating sharepoint webparts in .Net. http://localzuk.com/2010/04/30/sharepoint-webpart-tips/
Today looked set to be another normal day, camped at my desk with a cup of coffee and tinkering with the homebrew system to set up school reports. As it stands, my heart sank when I fired up SIMS and an update appeared (also interfering with my project monitoring the SIMS server through MMC). At the same time, the webmail system was upgraded by external providers to a new one. We knew it was going to happen but not when. Today just got interesting.

I've posted a new blog entry about creating sharepoint web parts in c#, covering some of the initial questions I had when I started out. Go there
(Almost) half way through Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.
What an enormous book.
That is all.
