    Still can't believe they coped out of turning Options .net - still, FMS still uses crystal reports, why they can't at least turn the reports into .net I don't know.

    A rant for another day.

    Perhaps if not broken don't fix it is a good point here, but it does need changing soon! I think the facility rather than the technology was more of a surprise

    I started as a maths teacher with a background in computing. In the mid 80's I used database software on Archimedes computers to keep track of exam entries and when SIMS was introduced in 1989 on 4 pc's I took over responsibity for it as well as continuing to teach maths. Continued doing this through the various versions of SIMS, assisting with the various timetablers, exams officers, office managers and bursars but being in overall control of all of the student data. I carried on in this dual role for 19 years until I packed up the teaching side (after 35 yrs!) and becoming the full time SIMS & Data Manager. Like Sivadam I also maintain a hands on knowledge of most of the procedures.
    To my reckoning I've been working on SIMS for over 21 years but I'm not sure if I'm younger than Sivadam!
