    ok lets move forward again...

    lets say use vb.net 2003 as main language using people that must use 2005 remember two things one there have been some language improvments since 2003 version so some might not work and you can't just upload it have to upload project files have to upload the .vb files as 2005 and 2003 project files are different...

    right now on wiki http://www.russdev.com/edugeek/doku....group_projects

    there is project page with start of design spec either edit wiki or post here suggestions etc...

    Re: Project Ideas

    Well ive got HTML and CSS skiills, and i code database driven c#.net websites, so my vote went on C# im afraid (not a fan of VB)

    Suggestion: make the frontend web based? dump it on an IIS box with the correct security and you can delegate tasks to trusted users, also means its very customisable. Also means you could make it database driven (msde?, unless you have a fully blown SQL box to dump it on of course) and have bolt-on module suport?

    Re: Project Ideas

    ok i can see that but......

    Problem with that is you then need to install it on a server etc in someways you want something that is easier to install and adding it is part of the webpage can have problems anyone who uses cc3 will vouch for that...

    Re: Project Ideas

    OK guys, heres my 2 pence worth,

    Before we start doing any specs or deciding what should be in it or how it looks we need to decide on a common language.

    There is no use going any further before we get to that.

    The following questions I have:

    1) What Language (c#.net / vb.net)
    2) Do we have a definate set of people who are going to be working on the project.
    3) Project managers do we have them?
    4) Central file/project store (cvs / source safe) that all members can get at.

    Given the potentail scope of the project people need to be sure that they can commit the time to the project before they commit to joining.

    I have seen it before where people are full of the joys of spring when something is new but then it hits home just how much time and effort is involved.

    Just my 2 pence ;-)

    Re: Project Ideas

    right if look via wiki and the previous threads common lang between everybody was vb.net as it was what people knew or were willing to learn...

    again cvs should be sorted got to speak to person who is going to host cvs system for us just he has been on hols...

    as can see i am main one pushing this forward at moment mainly as it is part of my remit as to say as i suggested it etc... Hence i suspect project managers will be me plus one two other people. Then rest make up devlopement team...

    So basicly looking for couple other people to volunteer as project managers and also need people to stand up to the plate (sorry had to baseball reference in) and volunters as developers..

    I think really managers if vountering need to be able to use vb.net ok dont need to be guras in it but need some understanding of it...

    The developers on other hand can be from basic skills right up to guras as hopefuly the more experinced people will help lesser skilled users..

    so i am going to post in project forum some help wanted posts which you can reply to...

    Re: Project Ideas

    I've just added another requirement on the wiki. It's just occured to me that one thing we do with alarming regularity is to bulk move user areas, either to new drives or new servers. It would not be a huge task to add this feature, so the areas can be moved without losing file permissions, and I'm sure it would be one which is greatly needed.

    Re: Project Ideas

    Hi,

    I'm an ICT Manager within a education partnerhship and often found myself using features of RM, Viglen, Schoolcare (local company), Winsuite, Ranger that i really really liked...but like most ICT ppl in education can not see why schools should pay a load of money for something a good configured windows server can do

    So this lead me to code (and still am) a web interface for Active Directory which allows the users to do the following

    Add user
    Delete user
    Bulk Add user
    Bulk Delete
    Set up share and permission
    Enable/disable user

    Remote PC system information
    gpo refresh
    Force Log off PC

    What i would like to do but do not know how
    Blank screens
    deploy software (msi)
    assign/remove gpo from ou

    so maybe you could include those features.

    Computer Listing

    Drop Menu Interface (?)

    User Info

    User Listings

    i've attached some screen shots

    feed back is most welcomed

    Re: Project Ideas

    @uk101man: very good interface, I like it. I've also made a WOL script in ASP to pull in all machines that resides on the server. Is also schedule-able

    @Ric_: Re lab-techs: "This could be made more generic so that it includes aspects of stock control, requests for practicals and a helpdesk. That way it would be useful to lab techs and computer techs." I have also had the idea put to me about creating a ticket sort of system for the science department to improve the availability and organisation of practicals, but it hasn't gone far past initial discussions yet. I'm really interested in doing something in php/mysql (my favourite line of development - where's that option in the poll? :P).

    I've already started work on Print Manager - http://www.craigrodway.f2s.com/PrintMan/ (familiar sort of interface for some of you ) test:test for admin user rights, demo:demo for regular user if anyone wants to give it a go

    Re: Project Ideas

    Going way back to the original question ....

    How about a piece of software that will allow you to install & distribute educational software without having to create, amend, tweak, deploy and redeploy an msi on a network running anything from win 95 to XP/2003 and automaticaly add it to a DB stating when and where it is installed and also give the option of uninstalling it remotely.

    Oh and be able to give out reports on when it was used, where and by who.

    All in one neat package with a GUI interface.

    Or something easy like rewrite the MS OS?

    Re: Project Ideas

    I think the deploy and DB entries wouldn't be too difficult Depending on your definition of difficult that is. Redeploy? That may take a little WMI programming I think. Create and Amend would be a serious undertaking though need a few white papers on that I think. Possible WMI calls for the reports on used, where and who GUI is the easy bit lol.
