    Check out 'Roaming Profiles' for the discussion on the pros and cons of the evil that is the roaming profile. :twisted:

    Paul

    We are just down the road and if you want to pop in for a cuppa and chat with Stephen, feel free.

    Is Andrew joining you? I haven't heard from him in a while ...

    Re: What is....

    Hi Tony.

    Down the road where?

    But yes- sounds good. Unfortunately, the expert that is Andrew won't be joining us, and that's our loss I think. I'm not new to server installations but certainly new to school server installations...seems very different kettle of fish to me.

    Email me if you like and we'll chat and organise something (once I know where exactly you are :? )

    Take care,

    Paul

    PMed to most of this.

    I am at Lodge Park, and have reached the dizzy heights of Manglement ...
    I only mention this to show everyone that there is hope for us all ...

    I am a Director of IT, on the Senior Leadership Team, have a Network Manager, Assistant Network Manager (in some places would be equiv of Senior Tech), 2 part time Techs (one doubles up as webmaster) and a Computer Sciences student from a localish Uni on a 15 months placement (during the summer this overlaps to give me 2 ... plenty of manual labour for moving boxes etc)

    I work with the Head of Faculty (IT + DT are now combined ...) and the Head of IT; they plan, resource and teach the curriculum; we co-ordinate ICT across the curriculum together; I head up the ICT User Group, work with outside bodies (NAACE, Becta, SST, etc) and manage/control the MIS (sorting out assessment with those that organise the reports, exams with the exams officer, student intake ... the usual stuff ... thankfully I miss out on Timetabling!!! woohoo!!)

    I am 100% associate staff (non-teacher) ... never have been a teacher ... never likely to be. I started as a techie, and get frustrated because I am not meant to do hands-on support anymore ... that's why I have a support team.

    Lets face it ... if I can get to these lofty heights ... anyone can!
    Food for thought?

    Hey Tony.

    You've done well sir!

    It'll be good to read your experienced contributions.

    On a connected note: why didn't Lodge Park snap Andrew up??? 8O

    Take care,

    Paul

    When the Network Manager job came up for grabs again a few months back Andrew didn't apply ... he was pretty disillusioned about working in education and wanted to go into industry ...

    We've all felt that way ... I seriously just could not persuade him to apply.

    Thankfully, we got Stephen.

    Re: What is....

    Yes. We tried everything to get personnel to retain him, but in the end I think he got a better offer from CCC. So that's where (I think) he has gone in more of a consultative role than the position he held at OLPJ.

    I wish Stephen all the best!

    Paul
