    The info we got straight from the horses mouth was that some high end machines did not work, some lower end ones did. It is pretty certain a dual core graphics card is needed but not all of them work...

    I'd like to say 'I hope that helps' but I'm sure it doesn't.

  2. Thanks to creese from:

    That is exactly what I have been saying in previous posts. And hence why I have not offered advice previously! It is also the reason that Capita cannot currently give you a definite spec!

    Thanks creese!

    You're welcome. It's all a bit up in the air at the moment, as exciting as it is to some, I think September is a reasonable time to expect anyone to start using it.

    One thing to take into account is that it is unlikely to be used on every SIMS machine, users should be carefully selected on necessity and ability. That way if a graphics card needs swapping it won't have such a big impact.

    That is exactly right Creese. It is aimed at high end users to help them with the data analyis, especially on the fly.
    I know what will be coming next - everbody will start wanting it on SLG! Now that would, I assume, be a big 'No! No!' for a very long, long time to come!

    It looks like the controversial threads have dried up, at least for now. So I have no reason to upset anybody.

    It may be just coincidence, but I will regard my campaign as having been successful (so far!). Hence I have no option but to either disappear or to help people!

    Mind you - I have always done that for those people genuinely asking for help, in what I regard as a professional manner! Just as I have through the years on SupportNet!

    Trawling back thro' all the threads I have contributed to, it is so obvious that I have been helpful on the vast majority. However, as in all walks of life, people tend to react to the negative and ignore the positive! Andy Gray can testify to that!

    My understanding is that, the whizzy stuff and graphics is for the primary user / data manager, senior team, analysts, head of year / curriculum maybe. The output will then be a static, that could be shared easily, published maybe for the department to see, and even kept updated. Like with the dynamic user groups, with notification to changes. Everyone will have access, like they currently do to the data via reports. But they may be created by someone else. All those wannabe Tom Cruise's will just have to go home and use the Wii for their fun

    Whoa? Just repeating what Capita said in December, when they demonstrated it to several schools from 2 different authorities.

    As I have told you before!

    The campaigh to challenge, as strongly as possible, those that knock SIMS in an inappropriate way and/or by making untrue statements, and/or as a result of lack of knowledge of how the system works. These threads were quite common at one time and were not being moderated in any way.
    My responses were then obviously not fully appreciated by the moderators and so I consequently had to try and correct their attitudes and their responses both to what I was trying to do and also to myself personally!
    I still do not respond to any post, either here or on SupportNet, by one particular person! Which is a great pity really as there is much help that I could give in response to some of that person's posts! Edugeek is the poorer for that!
