    Sorry for the bad joke

    Haven't heard of that Endian before, looks quite promising though. Was the headache induced by Endian or your end users?

    Neither I don't think although I will say that Endian didn't make it any better. It started when I got called away to look at a PC with a 15" CRT running at 1024x768@60hz and got progressively worse from there. In the end I had to go home early and sleep it off :|

    I was shocked when this came out, but when you think a blood sub costs £100 a year now, it may not be that bad to say you would get Blood, Active Image and TS for (in some schools cases) very reasonable money. I will wait to see, but I have mailed them, as the schools I work for, ALL ofthem have way less than 200 users, in a few its less than 100! So its a bit big the 200 licence pack for us.

    I have been looking at the pricing and as long as the product has everything it says it not too bad. The base licence buys you enough for 200 concurrent users which will probably be ample for most places.
    The price also includes the black list update and the active image control as well (image filtering) and support.
    So for £200 a year its not too bad compared to a lot of other products.

    Blah, so what about concurrent users, when you the size of the school I use this in, the starter pack is about 10x too large! But I have had contact from them about that issue....

    They are looking into primary school pricing.

    Re: CensorNet V4 will cost

    Any News on Censornet? :?: Their site seems to have gone semi-dormant. Forum had been down for months now read-only awaiting new Forum:twisted:

    Are they keeping a low profile untill they work out a new business model. Can't find any new info. :cry:

    Re: CensorNet V4 will cost

    Yep. We're trying to negotiate a decent price on Censornet v4 - they want £5 per concurrent user - on that basis even 200 users means £1000 a year. Too much for us, unfortunately.

    Does cachepilot have a yearly subscription?

    Maybe we should stay with Censornet v3 and hope some of the v4 features make their way into the open source version.

    I can't see anything compelling in v4 as opposed to v3 - apart from the transparent authentication which everyone seems to want.

    OK guys, give me a details of a current Dell machine which would run Censornet v3 - I gather it uses quite an old version of Debian Linux. Serial ATA is not going to work, is it? I used to be a dab hand at running Linux, but finding suitable drivers is going to tax me way to much now. I'm used to Apple Macs, for heaven's sake!

    Cheers.

    Re: CensorNet V4 will cost

    Looks we got a good deal by buying early - we paid £100 for a 200 concurrent user license for our Comprehensive and bagged an 18 month deal as a result due to the delays!
