  1. Building a Recording and Sequencing lab on a budget (And why you shouldnít buy Apple)

    by , 18th March 2014 at 11:01 AM

    Building a PC to do studio recording / sequencing is not something Iíve have to trouble myself with for a number of years. After all, at university, I had access to a number of high level facilities, and after I had left, I bit the bullet and bought a Macbook Pro - whilst not the best outright, it did most of what I needed with little or no fuss (and for close to £2,000 you would expect no less!).
    However, I was contacted by a customer this week who had been asked ...

  6. Keeping an eye on who is in school

    by , 14th February 2014 at 10:00 AM (The Progresso Geek)
    Form tutors, with great ease this widget will allow you to view the attendance percentage for your tutees, even providing a ranked list. Why not try and encourage some healthy competition!

    Alter the parameters/settings appropriately and this widget will also be great for Headís of Year to keep an eye on all their learners without constantly reviewing attendance reports each week or even less regularly. Perhaps at the end of the year or each term, your SMT could view all the learners ...
  7. The User Profile Service failed the logon

    by , 13th February 2014 at 02:59 PM
    If you've worked with Windows 7 for any length of time, you're sure to have come across this error sooner or later. Most of the time it's relatively easy fix involving the registry, which you can find here (this works for Vista, windows 7 and 8:

  8. Managing Total Storage in Schools

    , 12th February 2014 at 03:21 PM
    One (of many) things that created discussion from my last blog post was the total amount of storage we provide to our users in school. Unlike some schools we do not limit quotas for user or shared areas but we do keep it very well maintained via automated and manual processes. Many people seemed to be surprised our total data store was only 500GB for a school with over 1,000 users. People mentioned figures such as 5tb to 20tb of storage which seemed very large to me. Some other network ...

  10. Stable ICT systems in Schools

    , 4th February 2014 at 11:51 AM
    I've been doing this job for many years and one of the biggest targets I have had in that time is to make our entire ICT ecosystem "Stable". By this I mean that things work as they should in a classroom or for our admin staff and dont break too often. In fact when something breaks it should be a surprise or an extraordinary event, not something that inevitably just happens. We all see jobs of "the projector is broken" or "the hard disk died" but these ...
