    Hi George, you know what I saw the other day ... one of ESPN's 30 for 30 films about Red Sox's comeback against those darn yankees in 2004 ... awesome ... but anyway ... have you tried MDT 2010 for deploying windows 7? Just thinking aloud

    Hi everyone!

    I've been out of the I.T. World since 2003. Being a single full time father of a three year old daughter, i got back into the game and am facinated at the advances in technology!

    Do people from the US still exist here?

    Whatever. In any case, I started this school year as a technology coordinator for a K-8 charter school. We do have an elementary level tech coordinator, but for higher-level stuff it's basically just me. The middle school I'm at daily has 1-to-1 MacBook Airs, so needless to say I'm engaged in a constant cat-and-mouse game. My first major project will be implementing a WAN between our two sites and uniting Active Directory at the elementary school with Open Directory at the middle school. Should be a fun time, and I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions for the Edugeek community along the way!

    @JohnMairs and also @LCPSWolf and @MordyT albeit a bit late
    We do still have a large US presence, in fact the bulk of our traffic is from the US, though that is probably not reflected in membership numbers. Most I presume use for what they need and go away. That's one of the reasons it's so popular; unlike many other sites, you get the quality advice and support without needing to sign up and give away your email address. Of course now you've signed up you can pose your own questions and gossip along with the rest. Enjoy your time here

    Long time listener, first time caller.
    I've been working with SIMS and various CAPITA Modules since about late 2011 in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands.
    I find that this site is far more supportive than CAPITA's own dedicated support portal.
    Keep it EDUgeek family.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    - missed this over xmas. Nice to have you in the family and see you in the forums.
    I always fancied heading over to the cayman islands.
    Were you working at a school or with IT Outsource?
