    Re: PDA s for registration

    We use pars as well for the PE staff. They are currently running a peer to peer wireless connection between 1 laptop and 3 PDA's. same thing as pete, get someone to start the listening service and the staff just download their registers.

    I have a 802.11b access point that i've been testing with my own PDA and we are looking at putting one in the sports hall behind a metal cage so the staff can take their registers and download them without having to go to a certain office to get to the peer to peer network.

    When using Pars on the PDA's there is a setup file called pocketpars, this is what you transfer to the PDA and run. You don't need anything else, except maybe .net compact framework 1.1 I think that is only needed if you are running ppc2003.

    @Chafftech
    PARS / PocketPARS is an add-on for SIMS, we use it for electronic registration for all staff (there's more to it than that, but all we currently use). It's _not_ cheap and wouldn't be cost effective just for your PE Dept (£6K initial for a school with ~830 kids, £1K yearly). It is rather good though, _all_ of my staff commented on how easy it is to use - that is unheard of here.

    yeah, didn't think I'd spelt that correctly.

    That's very interesting - so no need to buy the extortionate SIMS Mobile S/W = £200 for each PDA + maintenance + setup (if you don't do it yourself).
    I'd like to know more details on that.
