For some reason, our College (with around 1800 students) was only allocated a relatively small number of IP addresses - and DHCP has been moaning at me for the past 3 months about it!!
Chatting to our RBC got us a new range, not an extension sadly, so time to get ready to move everything. FUN FUN FUN
:: 20 Servers
:: 80 Waps
:: 60 Printers On to the job
As our kids have decided it is fun to reset the printer settings
I admit it, I'm a Dell tart. Always have been. Always been impressed mainly with their support and never had problems.
Recently I've had to purchase a new Server for Exchange 2007 that I'm implementing. And spent a lot of time with suppliers working out an affordable spec and deciding on a particular brand. I was very close to purchasing another HP/Compaq ML380 G5, but in the end plumped for a Dell 2950 as again, the support included a 4 hour response which still brought it in
Well im away in australia, thought id find somewhere to write about stuff. Not for anyone to read really just so I can put stuff. Never used this before so here goes...
I said in my last blog about us deploying Forefront over Easter, and its all pretty much done... ahead of schedule!
Before I get into it, a bit of blurb about what it is...
What is ForeFront Client Security (FCS) then? This is a client/server solution that helps scan and remove malware (virus, spyware, rootkit, Trojan...) in client and server operating systems. This is a new product from Microsoft. It uses WSUS 3.0 for distributing i installation and definitions.
Some of you may know about my fairly big plans for the Easter, but here is an idea of some of what we get up to...
1. Our network range is moving (thanks IFL!!)... so 20 servers to change IP settings, a load of switches and a load more WAPS! Roll on when I have a better WLAN system!! Mark (over at NetCTRL)... Im still hoping, I know we've not spoken in a bit!
2. Sharepoint is getting the two big updates from Feb. Also, putting the Podcast Kit for Sharepoint on,
Don't normally post to blogs, but I may start.
I'm getting sick and tired of having to jump through hoops to get a bit of software working that we've paid a license for.
I appreciate these companies want to protect their products but, when it gets in the way of day to day running then I start to get annoyed.
More so, when even though I've licensed a product, due to a glitch or whatever the software then enjoys informing me that I'm running illegal software
Firstly, thanks to all the people who have contacted me after my last posts on Sharepoint. I was expecting "some" interest - but have had a bit more than I bargained for!!
Anyway - as there is such a desire for more info on it, and getting it set up in Schools, I thought I would try to put pointers out there on the way we have done things here.
So - first question, yes we use MOSS on top of WSS. WSS is free, MOSS is not. However, it depends what you want
In one of my previous blogs I outlined the state and form of the new digital TV offering in New Zealand alnog with some of the trials that I had with the included software. To summarize, the use of the h.264 codec for NZ DVB-T posed numerous issues with both software and hardware. Vistas media center would not find a single digital

I've been thinking about where ICT in the classroom is headed, the speed at which technology is entering classrooms and the speed at which teachers are keeping up.
The equation doesn't balance.
Laptops, PDA, iPods, Smart Boards... all connected with WiFi networks. So there's your "21st century classroom"
Now, mix in some tweens, teens and sugar + a teacher with very little training & PD.
I keep hearing this term, "clasroom
Ok - a bit of an odd one here! I wasnt originally going to blog any more today - afterall I have been quite active after a quiet spell!!!
However, I came across a forum post giving Acer a bit of a bashing - and had to get involved! No - not in that way.... to support them. A few years ago, I never thought I would say that, but hey - they've pulled it off.
Acer support used to be dire sometimes - but they turned the corner about 3 years ago.
