    Both links work here at home for me.

    I've done it in my name at school today. Thought i'd try it before i told the teachers.

    I'll let you know if i get anything.

    And now for the bad news. Once you have these USB sticks you will have to set up encryption on them if you expect teachers / staff to carry data around with them. The Becta guidance documents have a good guide to doing this with TrueCrpyt.

    Just signed up too just to see what happens

    Does say that the embedded resources/files 'cannot' be deleted as they are 'securely' placed on the memory stick. Sounds more like a challenge to me...
    Also mentions something to do with channel partners so I assume it has an autorun style item on it that will download advertising or suchlike, but then if it is wiped its not going to do that!

    My email address is also 37 characters, emailed Memory4Teachers this morning and just had a reply to say they had expanded the email field. I've now registered, lets see what arrives.
