    Come to Portsmouth, that is a higher class of hotel!

    I have secured my pass for the event, possibly the evening too. And no blagging involved!

    I'd also like to have a peek at the admin side of Live@Edu. I know what all the user-facing stuff is, but the process of how I would administer it is a mystery to me.

    Ray seems to, me and about 3 others talked to him at the Edugeek conference and all of us had different interpretations of Licensing but Ray's made most sense once fully explained, shame his answers = more money for us all to spend on them

    Anyway, they should have lots of details on the Schools "campus" agreement by then if were not all bored of it so that would be good and SCCM stuff as it looks terribly complex still!

    That would be great - my licensing is in a complete tangle and I need to sort it out - no one seems to be able to give me an answer ATM

    Feel free to share with us on here Witch between us we have worked out various licensing issues, I was even talking about MS Licensing in the car today to a fellow IT Manager on the way to our area meeting today so its a very common pitfall.

    What I would like to see from MS

    New service pack for SCCM they have been talking bout on technet which is scheduled for release in April next year, any idea of the bug fixes/security issues that we should be concerned about?

    Why some images do not take properly since W7, specifically to do with the unattend file...if someone could give a proper demo on that, that would be useful

    Also same with GPO, sometimes it fails on some machines, even after GPUPDATE /FORCE...(some issues also arise with this when it comes to msi installations which don't want to take on some but do on others...and before you say, not just my place having issues with the last 2, as I know of 3 other schools with same probs).

    As for edugeek - demo of the joomla package so others can see, and also how some users have implimented it to show that it is customisable.
    Various Edugeek projects that are going on (Classroom bookings, toner inventory etc)

    If there is an award ceremony and I am nominated for anything, PM me so I can do a response just incase I win! lmao
