    vpnc is sweet so much quicker than the windows vpn client.

    sudo vpnc <myname>
    sudo vpnc-disconnect

    i'll look at the kvm tommorow. might put ubuntu on my desktop at work see how this goes.

    can't get on the school website or remote.school.sch.uk when the vpn is active? i think it does dns lookups via the vpn connection while you are on it? might want to be careful with that not neccesarily information atomwide needs!

    did you seem them at bett

    nah i saw the stand but didn't go up to them - i was looking at things like the interactive projectors from viewsonic with interactive pens rather then board - also finding companies which resell macs.

    Also looked at Groupcall Emerge so PE staff can do their registers and stuff on iphone/ipad/itouch so we can get rid of there laptops

    Emerge sounds good £299 for the first license then £99 per device after that. Also looking at replacing our School comms and truancy call with Sims Intouch for sending emails and SMS to parents etc - the email uses your servers rather then sending it off to another company to send out the email.

    I did ask about an android version aswell which they said is likely to happen - I've asked them to email me more details so i can see it better. but after the first license has been purchased its just a case of buying an ipod touch at £160 and license for it at £99 means they can do there registers inside the buildings - they all have an office computer anyway.

    The reason i asked about an android version was becuase you can buy a full tablet for £160 which they can do more on then an Ipod touch for the same price

    does it work via wireless? or does it upload ?

    were using parent mail, i could have coded something inhouse, but i haven't really got the time and i kinda like the external company on somethings.

    i'd def prefer android to apple ! but that just me.

    apple is soooo overpriced for what it is.

    can work over both wireless and 3g

    we currently use SchoolComms + TruancyCall (and something else) but Intouch roles it all into one plus extra

    I am defo more android then apple! I'm still not liking that we are looking at a suite of macs (probs 10) for next summer and the stupid price it is going to cost!

    don't think our quote was that much - although i don't think they quoted for software

    we looked at 8 Imacs and 2 mac pros for about 11k

    i've already said i won't touch them! we currently have 3 mac mini's for music which i don't touch! but we need to have macs to compete with the other sixth form colleges around for the music tech course and the others colleges all have them!

    they are more stable, granted but PC's are pretty stable if running pro-tools when using digidesign hardware designed for the software!

    trouble we have with the PC's for music, Is they want every piece of software under the sun installed and then wonder why cubase isn't 100%/ + we want to connect to the network and listen to all the network broadcasts and hang when the file server is busy etc. then they get macs and make that they are great, probably because their not on the network! and they only have logic installed!

    we give music there own dedicated FS - just an old town server we found which i think is xeon 2gb ram with 2 500gb hard disks in running samba - they then save to this and its just what they want they asked for so its what they got
    but all our macs will be used by our radiostation for all the edititing etc they do

    I don't think there is much - they save to the shared drive then copy up to the actual fs - so that there is only ever about 10/12 users connected as only the music machines get the mapped drive

    i'm thinking of vlaning music as well to cut down on broadcast traffic,

    so they save to the shared drive? is this the samba box? then copy to fs? their home area?

    how do they get access to the shared drive and home area at the same time?
