    The sales people have a new tactic!

    Yes, IT sales departments have discovered how they can find out what goes on in the evil minds of the likes of us system managers and technicians! HOW?

    By reading EDUGEEK of course, that's how!

    Received an email this morning from Tim Okeefe from A2Z Computers who offered his services and advice on the thin client front because he had read I was looking into it on here!

    If you're reading this Tim, HELLO and welcome to Edugeek.

    Has anyone else been approached in this manner from A2Z or another supplier? I'll give it to TIM, he's done his home work.

    Good. They can buy some advertising space once we've finished the module. It'll halp to pay for the dedicated server we need.

    That seems a very good idea Dos_box we can e-mail all the it suppliers and ring them as they do us and ask them if they are interested in advertising their wares. We can then vet them from all the members who have dealings with them. They then might get a taste of their own medicine hehe

    Re: The sales people have a new tactic!

    They have probably picked it up because they do look at other forums and have seen EduGeek obliquely reffered to ...

    Oh ... and the fact that when I was accosted by them at BETT I had a badge saying EduGeek on (partly because I didn't want them to get the name of the school)

    Ok, ok...i'll fess up...it was actually me that pointed Tim towards Edugeek as we were chatting on the phone the other day and I was commenting on the FITS framework and the draft becta infrastructure documents.

    So please be kind and kindly ensure that the bricks are encased in bubble wrap before you throw them at me!

    If anyone ends up doing business with a supplier because of Edugeek maybe we could get them to donate to the Bett 2007 fund.

    We certainly need to get some money out of them whether its to the benefit of the school, or Edugeek.
