  1. VOIP

    by , 19th October 2008 at 01:40 PM (Wandering lonely as a clown...)
    I've been thinking lately about school phone usage and wondering why we aren't moving to VOIP in schools.

    For example, at the moment, if we wish to call our LEA or a local school, we have to dial out via a PSTN line and pay a call charge. Whilst at the same time we have a perfectly usable high quality fibre-optic internet connection. Surely introducing a VOIP phone system across schools would be fairly simple - I could outfit all our local schools with suitable Asterisk based systems ...

  5. 2009: Apple unveil iPod Grain

    by , 10th September 2008 at 10:37 AM
    At an exclusive product unveiling today (just 3 months since the last iPod hit the shelves), Steve Jobs of Apple announced they have developed and are about to release the smallest iPod to date. The iPod Grain, as the name implies, is about the size of a grain of sand. The new addition to the music player line-up from the Jesus Phone maker comes with a non-expandable 1TB of flash memory for all your songs.

    Speaking of songs, the Grain exclusively plays formats in Apple's proprietary ...

    Sigh. When will it stop?

    I know being near the coast in Welsh Wales doesn't help, but all it does is rain! I think we've had about 4 good weekends this year.

    Note for next year: if it's a good Easter, blow all my leave then - 'cos summer's likely to be cack.
  9. The Diary of a Boring Git

    by , 15th August 2008 at 07:28 AM
    I do have a blog out in the wild, but thought I'd post here.

    Just a quick intro.

    I don't currently work in IT, but hopefully that's going to change.

    Just completed a 3 month assignment as an Office Admin.

    Many moons ago I did do part time IT support, however not on a formal help desk, so not really had any exposure to Active Directory and bashing users over the head with a keyboard because they've forgotten their passwords. Only joking, ...
  10. Richard Dawkins: Darwinism C4

    by , 11th August 2008 at 11:11 PM
    The pedigree is stunning, but Dawkins exhibits an intelligence below average in his reasoning.

    When face to face with the leader of the church he has just spent 5 minutes describing as blocking the display of 3 million year old bones, the leader clearly states that his only problem with the exhibition is it's portrayal of the artifact in a biased way towards evolution theory. Even with the benefit of editorial after sight it seems Dawkins isn't very wise.
