Getting you the information on the best school IT suppliers and services in one place

Welcome to the only place on the internet intended for and aimed at educational IT support staff. Due to our unique position, usually between a rock, a hard place and a whole mass of untrained and unknowing staff we are the ones regularly faced with problems such as......

'Can you disable internet access to all of the machines in my room, except one, but then only for 15 minutes, and then enable access to all but the one which had access origionally. In 5 minutes time. Please?'

Share your knowlege, vent your anger and join in what is proving to be an invaluble resource for all hard pressed educational techies.
We are a totally independent community and are not tied in with any Govt body or corporate entities. If you want a rant about them feel free, but please keep it relevant.


P.S. The logo has been changed for something a little less amaturish, so thanks to DMcoy for that one.

P.P.S If you came here via letter In PC Pro see the uncut version here

P.P.P.S. No, we couldn't navigate the Becta web site so they built us a new one and it uses google dont you know....

IBM and Sun show off high-performance iron
NewsIBM and Sun Microsystems are using the International Supercomputing Conference in Dresden this week to show off their new petascale servers.

IBM's new Blue Gene/P offers three times the performance of the BlueGene/L, which currently ranks as the world's fastest supercomputer.

It will be capable of processing up to three petaflops, a measure used to indicate three thousand trillion floating point operations per second (flops). IBM claimed that this performance offers the equivalent of 100,000 desktop computers.

The system is likely to top this year's supercomputer rankings to be released later this week at the Dresden tradeshow.

Google could be forced to carry a cigarette box warning about privacy
NewsChannel 4 News has learned that Google could be forced to carry a cigarette box style warning about privacy on its website.

You can make money without doing evil - it's Google's famous mission statement. But the world's biggest search engine is the focus of mounting concern over the growing scope of its power.

We went to the London Googleplex. It's to here that tens of millions of us turn every day to have our questions answered, find directions, communicate with friends and be entertained online. In fact, Google increasingly controls almost every aspect of our digital lives.

Viral marketing gets extremely literal
NewsA new computer virus was identified last week that spreads via USB flash drives and other removable media on Windows PCs. This method of propagation is about as old as computers themselves. So what's the big deal? It's the content of the program that makes this particular virus so special.

The worm doesn't infect a computer with maladjusted software or erase important system files. Instead, it spreads educational information about HIV/AIDS. Security experts have been quick to point out that the worm, called "liarVB-a," does no explicit harm to the user's computer, but it's still a potential security threat. Graham Cluley, a senior senior technology consultant at the security firm Sophos, explains,

Kids getting tech savvy at a yonger
BulletinsA market research company NPD has done a report and it is the 3rd since 2005 and has found out that children are getting tech savvy yonger. In 2005 it was reported the age was 8.1 and now in 2007 it is reported that the age is 6.7. This means at younger ages children are asking for WIIs PS3s PCs XBoxs at a lot yonger ages. Parents have, according to NPD, shown interest in buying branded products for children, but reported interest has declined from 83% in 2006 to 74% in 2007, possibly indicating that kids (edited)t the same brand and type of technology as their parents, not some dumbed down ‘kids version’.

Sheffield 6th form college sees better learning from new network
NewsLongley Park Sixth Form College aims to provide North East Sheffield with the best possible further education. The College found that its Cisco IT infrastructure was proving fundamental to supporting learning and improving education delivery for students and teachers.

Longley Park Sixth Form College is one of a handful of new sixth form colleges set up by the government to help promote and achieve higher levels of education among 16-18 year olds. The college is especially important in NE Sheffield because the area has a low number of people entering post-16 education and it is one of the few institutions of its kind in the area. Longley Park SFC offers a range of courses and specialist services such as Performing Arts, Public Services and courses that combine study with part-time work.
