    Independent Schools ICT magazine

    Did anyone else get a copy of Independent Schools ICT magazine in the post today? I did, and was suitably impressed. I looked at the cover and thought it would be the standard tedious "Computing"-style re-hash of press releases and dull industry pieces, but it actually does a pretty good job of summarising some of the tasks and issues that the average ICT Technician / Network Manager / whatever deals with. Articles included stuff on wireless systems, storage, and some handy hints for this term (I thought "write home to parents with suggestions and explanations on IT equipment in the lead-up to Christmas" was a good suggestion). Anyone else seen it?

    Likewise, I haven't seen it. I've got a data Protection meeting this morning and will see if it's buried on somebody else's desk!

    Hmm. Can't find any website, and I've lent the magazine at the moment so I can't check in there right now. Am starting to get the sneaking suspicion that I dreamt it.

    No, you didn't. A copy turned up for the boss at lunchtime, I've put my dibs on it so I'll check tomorrow for you.

    I ve started to put I.T. stuff in the newsletter where I work as I am also responsible for doing the newsletter. Openoffice for parents who can't afford office, good educational websites, useful I.T. commands, equipment, common faults etc and how to fix.

    Anybody else done this sort of thing? What feedback u get.

    Anyway sounds like a good mag!

    Including IT tips seems a good idea

    So rather than just boasting that you have a copy, could someone post a link to the company so that the rest of us can contact them?

    The web address is independentict.com and the editor's email address is bill@. I can't find any info about who publishes it though, it's a mystery.

    Edit: There is a link to register for a copy at http://www.independentict.com/magazine.htm

    From this page, it seems Bill is at Kent College Pembury... I'll investigate further; that's near me... in fact I applied for a job there about 5 years ago!

    Thanks Powdermonkey - two of the articles listed are ideal for current projects here, shame it is an October magazine not a September one :-(
