    This is Exactly why RM's CC is a BAD thing... A network manager that cannot manage a normal network because his skill set was killed off by CC3

    Don't forget Special Agent is getting around 4 to 5 grand.. so the school is paying around 29 to 30k which is normal

    I can assure you that my skill set is not affected because I use RM and manage CC3 as I also manage a vanilla network within the school, Its just I prefer using CC3 as I can learn other things such as nix*.

    Yes, the link isn't working but its got nothing to do with Webmail, it was a link showing RM's exchange options.

    Re my post above

    Looks like I can't joke on the forums any more before someone whines to the Admins and some Stasi admin comes down and gives me an infraction

    How pathetic is that ? This forum is getting very repressive

    Where did I insult anyone.. I was joking about RM lack of skill set and I was put right by the replying members that RM is doing exchange and dropped Web Mail..

    But no..... some power mad admin accuses me of trolling and gives me an infraction... it's sad on how trivial edugeek moderation has become.

    Looks like we have to watch what we say or the infraction Stasi will give me a point.. this is worse than East Germany and the Stasi

    The Ministerium für Staatssicherheit (Ministry for State Security), commonly known as the Stasi , was the official secret police of East Germany.

    The MfS was headquartered in East Berlin, with an extensive complex in Berlin-Lichtenberg and several smaller facilities throughout the city. It was widely regarded as one of the most effective and repressive intelligence and secret police agencies in the world.
    Dear Grommit,

    You have received an infraction at EduGeek.net Forums.

    Reason: Insulted Other Member(s)
    -------
    I have already sent a message explaining the infraction.
    -------

    This infraction is worth 1 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.

    I think the point is more that you were putting someone down because they worked on a CC3 network, rather than RM itself.

    I work on a CC3 network but that doesn't mean that's my entire skill set given I yesterday answered your own question about the Asus EeePC and T-Mobile dongle on Linux.

    well it's pretty shocking to be reprimanded for suggesting that cc3 reduces windows skillset, as it is sortof like saying that using osx reduces your xp skillset!
