    A bit of EduGeek history

    I forgot to post these on 10,000 day. Here are the links to the first 10 posts, you can modify the last figure to have a bit more of a root around from our early days

    Hmmm, beer!

    Yay! A reference to uk.education.schools-it! *Those* were the days ... endless circular arguements about OSes, strange threads about christmas and the occasional person popping in telling us how we could change teh world!

    Discussions - uk.education.schools-it | Google Groups

    Seems quite a desolate (sp?) place these days!

    Dare I mention it, but was there not a competing forum for a while back there? I seem to recall a icttechnicians.co.uk - or some such.

    Bring back RISC OS - you know it makes sense :-)

    I wonder if some of the people who used to be on that newsgroup are now just quietly emailing each other, bemoaning the terrible state of the world??

    I'm deplorably low down the list of 'old-timers' ... I think it was a whole 6 weeks before I found this place (I blame Art Vandelay! If it had not been for him I would not have been dragged into all this!)
