Cool, got hooked on [adult swim] when i was on holiday in florida earlier this year. Think i may have to devise a cunning plan to get a MythTV box installed at my parents house so i can leach their sky connection. Muhahaha! :twisted:Quote:
Off topic about tv shows, if you have digital/cable/sky/whatever and get bravo, watch it from midnight, they run [adult swim] which has funny cartoons and robot chicken, which is hilarious claymation made by seth green!
Neil here from Portsmouth. I'm the IT & Network Techie at Priory School in Portsmouth. Approx 280 desktop PCs - soon to become 380 and a mostly Windows 2003 Server AD network with about 5 servers - the last two NT 4.0 boxes are being moved over next week to 2003. No laptops - laptops are dished out to staff and they are then their responsibility, but don't go near our LAN.
Im a Network Administrator in a large school in West Berkshire
Have around 400 desktops and 250 laptops, all Win XP
Server 2003 AD network, 5 of our servers (2 DC's), 2 SIMS servers, and an OSX server
Full school wireless coverage pretty much, all Cisco AP's with a Radius server
Technology college so a LOT of money is spent, theres probably only a handful of PC's that arnt P4's now, all laptops are Centrinos, everything seems to get replaced so quick...
1700 students inc sixth form, about 200 staff members
Lucky enough to have a big team, theres the network manager, me, and 4 technicians (one of which is one of my best mates so its quite fun)
Im 22, started here as a technician straight out of college about 19 months ago, network administrator left last November and I got the job :)
Thats about it I think, just really happy to have found this forum, as some of the dreadful educational software we have to use gets quite frustrating, and its good to have somewhere to get help :)
I'm a volunteer system architect/admin/trainer for a private school in Rockford Illinois USA.
I just want to give a big "Thank You" for making this site. I was killing myself trying to apply business world methods in a school environment. This has been a great resource while setting up the school’s new Windows 2003 Server and rolling out Windows 2000 to over 30 ancient PCs that were running Windows 98. (Some even had an install date in ’97!!)
That is, once I got past the way you guys misspell and misuse words. :wink:
Hi Altair :)
Probably the world record for the longest time Windows has been installed! I usually measure 98 installs in weeks or months ;)Quote:

Happy in my job, well paid, good supportive SMT and staff (with a few expections!). Leading a good team of five very talented individuals and between us we look after the 150 LFT's, 500 or so curriculum machines, AV equipment (every classroom has at least a projector) and large, site-wide wireless network.
We also look after the IT for some local primary schools who pay us to do so.
I have a habit of posting essays instead of quick responses so I shall apologise and stop there.
