    There is no better way to end a day at work then spending a bit of afterwork (unpaid) time getting a printer to demand more cheese to print.

    PJLTalk is your cheesy friend for this.

    Note that this doesn't affect the printer's operation or stop it printing.

  2. Fronter

    , 13th May 2009 at 10:07 PM (100 Grades Per Minute)
    You know, I am slowly warming up to Fronter. Regardless of the trouble suffered by LGfL during the start of this academic year with their login system, it is very good when it works.

    I have been getting to grips with making pages, using tools and generally spicing things up as practice. I've seen productive (and not so productive) student message board posts, taught teachers how to use RSS feeds and promoted special events with the News tool.

    By digging into the tools ...

  6. Changing Ranges...

    by , 16th April 2009 at 09:56 AM
    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

  7. Reconfigure whole rack just for a Dell Server

    by , 11th April 2009 at 11:44 AM
    I admit it, I'm a Dell tart. Always have been. Always been impressed mainly with their support and never had problems.

  9. Forefront... Defender's Big Daddy!

    by , 9th April 2009 at 08:16 PM
    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.
  10. Jobs for Easter

    by , 3rd April 2009 at 10:20 PM
    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, ...
