    Volunteers wanted to beta test some shiny new software

    Are you a secondary school? Do you have lots of PCs? Do you know what's installed on them? If not then IT Vision have kindly offered the opportunity to beta test their Parado system ( http://www.itvision.net/parago.html ). If you want to test this for them and let them know what you think then they need 3 of our members to step forwards. The 3 with the biggest excuses to want this software will have their details forwarded to IT Vision and they will contact you.
    You must also be willing to let us know all about it here too so we can add it to the reviews section.
    So post your excuses and I will select the three biggest sob stories.

    Re: Volunteers wanted to Bete test some shiny new software

    Oh please let it be meee... and I'll tell you why also...

    I really could use a tool that can help to show my unknowledgable fellow admin staff to see what I propose for the future in our network/system, what I can improve and show more detailed reports (or even "some" reports without me spending hours upon hours creating development plans to no avail) and hopefully as a bonus, it might help me get the pay wage I so readily deserve.

    So....I'll gladly beta test it for the lovely people

    I shall endevour to expand upon this plee, once I've thought more about it but I want to get in there first

    Regards,
    Nath

    Re: Volunteers wanted to beta test some shiny new software

    Seeing as you are first, you're in. I was rather hoping for something like 'The money saved by us running this software will help pay for my pet badgers spllen replacement operation as we have to buy a spleen from India due to a lack of badger donors in the UK'.
    Or somesuch.

    Re: Volunteers wanted to beta test some shiny new software

    Yeah me!

    I think were deserving coz we aint got a lotta money to spend - wot with the expense of the barn upkeep an all. The kids sharing assembly with the milkin cows and ma havin to clear the table wen I starts up me maffs teachin'....countin sheep aint good enuff fur them new fangled narshunal coreicuulurm no more. More's the pity Ma sayz.
    Rural Muckheaps sold us some new fangled computers anyway and tho nuffin ever seems to work there always them nice blokes comin around to see Ma for favours and suchlike. They always go away wif a smile on thier faces anyhows - so shee wants me to ask yoo if it woodunt be too much trouble to try out ure extremely nice offar unall.

    gimme or i'll carry on LOL

    Re: Volunteers wanted to beta test some shiny new software

    Good to see people wanting to take part! We will shortly be opening up a Public Beta which will allow anyone in education use the system for a number of weeks. (as long as it doesnt end up being hundreds!)

    During that time we will be looking for as much feedback as possible, although the system has been tested within a 20+ schools already I still find different issues with every school I visit.

    If anyone wants any questions answered about the system just ask,
