    What are those? :shock:

    Digital signage systems seem to be the in-thing at the moment and an area that has cropped up on here recently.

    Re: What to buy?

    recently done the digital signage thing, so i think i'm going to buy a new kick-ass server, as we have a two server set-up for CMIS/eportal at the moment. Other than that our webserver could probably do with replacing.
    Plus we've been given the go ahead to hire another techie (YAY!), and convert some under utilised space (toilets) into a proper office for my techies. At the moment they use the server room (as i did when i was a technician) but it makes me shudder when you're standing in a room with 100k worth of equipment, drinking tea/coffee, students, teachers, and even student teachers wandering in and out asking for support, passwords reset, general social conversations, etc. Not exactly best practice!
