  1. Intranet and Extranet SSO and Usability Project - Part 2

    by , 27th January 2013 at 05:07 PM
    This post is a continuation of my battle to compelte a cohesive intranet; and some more ramblings about Sharepoint. Its turned into a monster of a project this one. The external single sign on (SSO) was a breeze - thanks to Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) - but this presented an issue - internal or external, you would be faced with a logon screen. Not ideal - internally we wanted a double SSO which would use your Active Directory logon session to SSO with the TMG HTTP session.

  2. Intranet and Extranet SSO and Usability Project - Part 1

    by , 20th January 2013 at 09:02 PM
    Its been a long time since I last wrote about Sharepoint - the platform for our Intranet; but now with the rest of the ongoing projects nearing completion - I've been able to return to this monster of a project.

    Introduction
    So, lets go back to the start and show what the end goal was.

    1. Intranet Portal - containing Departmental, Staff and Student Areas. Department areas would have staff and student storage as well as news, events, discussions, blogs and all ...

  3. Improving the Remote Desktop / Thin Client experience

    by , 26th December 2012 at 04:32 PM
    Those who follow my blogs will know that I run a Thin Client section of my network - powered by Windows Thin PC (aka Windows 7 lite... it runs NT6.1) with Server 2008 R2.

    This post follows http://www.edugeek.net/blogs/thescar...nt-part-2.html and

    Introduction
    Last time out on RDS, we set up Single Sign on, so that our users would log onto a Windows Thin PC as themselves, and changed the shell from "explorer.exe" so that instead a Remote Desktop session ...
  4. System Centre... playing with Service Manager

    by , 30th November 2012 at 11:26 PM
    Ok, so I think people who follow my work often will know that Im a bit of a fan of the whole System Centre thing (yes - I know ive spelt System Centre properly, not the American "Center" that gets used everywhere!).

    You see, Configuration Manager - formerly Systems Management Server has always been a winner for me; but the real power now comes if you extend the stort by combining the elements of the suite together. System Centre is designed so that its components share information ...
  5. Capita LA Conference 2012 - Alton Towers - Learning Gateway Product Update

    by , 10th July 2012 at 04:00 PM
    Post 3 in this mini-series giving you the information from the Capita LA Event... and up this time; a bit of history of the SIMS Learning Gateway product with where it's headed. Incidentally at this point - this is probably the worst product name! It is NOT - never has been, never will be, was never supposed to be - a Learning Gateway. Nor was it ever going to be a replacement for SIMS.net! I did have some great discussions with Phil Neal and new product manager Ben Jones about this.

    by , 8th July 2012 at 08:00 PM
    This post continues from my last - discussing the themes and news from the Capita LA Conference. I know this will come as a surprise to some, who will have been expecting more "geeky" System Centre or HyperV stuff - but my community work will also form my blogs too!

    The Key Note speech at the event was made by Tony Travers. Tony Travers is Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science, a research centre at the London School of Economics. He is also a Visiting ...

    by , 7th July 2012 at 08:28 PM
    A departure from some of my more recent posts about System Centre - now time to concentrate on more of the Consultancy and Technology Evangelism Im also involved with.

    This time, I was very fortunate to be invited to the Capita SIMS LA Conference, held at Alton Towers. Thanks must go to Cath Lane and her team, as well as Phil Neal and the Product Managers who spared their time to talk to me. This is the first of a selection of posts which will appear this week discussing the themes ...

  8. Dell acquires Wyse Technologies

    DESKTOP PC FLOGGER Dell will buy thin-client vendor Wyse for an undisclosed sum.

    Dell has spent the last five years trying to shrug off its image as a beige box shifter with a significant push into the enterprise. Michael Dell even said, "Dell is not a PC company". Now the firm is moving further away from its tin box roots by buying Wyse, a company that's well known for its thin-client

  10. Darwin Awards

    by , 21st January 2012 at 07:42 PM
    Ok... so a departure from my normal belongings - but a bit of idle (well maybe not) fun and games...

    Read, and enjoy the underbelly of society!

    The DARWIN Awards!

    It's with great pleasure that I announce...it's that time again. The Darwin Awards are out! These Annual Honors are given to the persons who did the human gene pool the biggest service by killing themselves in the most extraordinarily stupid way.

    You may recall that last year's ...
