    *Very* pleased :wav:

    It brought our entire thin client network to a standstill and despite 10 months of complaints RM did very little to resolve the issues.

    Just a shame RM got paid, and now get shortlisted sell VLE's and BSF. Obviously history doesn't come into the equation. grrr.

    Re: Yay?

    Because we run Linux, and refused to do the tests unless they make it compatible with our system, so they sent us a free server with red hat on it, but it says in the contract that we own it but it can only be used for the testing until it no longer needs to be used for the ks3 testing we can do what we want with it.

    And I only just remembered about this today, I was going to set it up and make sure it was working, but now it all looks pointless.

    Yippee

    Re: Yay?

    I have not used this (the structure of schools in my area means I dont deal with the right age range at them) but YAY!! After reading your threads I was having knightmares about if and when I came across this product and now I won't be having them

    Re: Yay?

    Thank fook for that, I hope the project gets waylaid for several years. I was part of the pilot last year and it didnt work properly and required the tests to be installed on each individual machine, couldn't use GP.

    Wish i'd got a free server though

    How's this for timing - our free server was delivered yesterday - the very day the test was scrapped!! Quad Xeon with all whistles & bangs!

    Like linuxgirlie we refused to take part as they hadn't made the tests compatible with our system (Novell Netware).

    Result!!!

    You meant couldn't use group policy? I pushed all the software out via them so it wasn't soo much of problem but I'm happy we don't have to do it.

    Re: Yay?

    My SMT are now dragging their heels on cancelling this. My HT sent me this link although I can't see what it is actually trying to say. Sounds like total blather to me in an attempt to justify such a huge waste of public money.
