If you go down to Woodlands today…

.. you’re sure of a big surprise, sadly it doesn’t involve picnics. I was down there yesterday with the Education ICT Support team (Howard, James C and James W from Learning Services) reconfiguring some of the IT equipment. We managed to get through a lot despite a few little problems that took some time to sort, luckily the LS boys know their software image back to front and were able to create an innovative solution there and then! I spent most of my time working on the Woodlands wireless network. It’s now reconfigured to match the settings from Ormskirk so that laptop users from both sites are able to roam between the two networks without having to change settings every time. Howard’s team re-ghosted the classroom machines and they are all now been updated to the latest software image with all of the summer changes on, the laptops updates are soon to follow. It was quite a long day and we didn’t get back to Ormskirk till nearly seven. Here are a couple of pictures of the Woodlands classroom mid-ghosting.

In other news Stephen Timson is departing our team to go and work in a new role with the Core Services team. Ste looked after all of our images and the zenworks software delivery and his flair for creative problem solving will be sorely missed. Best of luck to him in his new job from everyone in Tech Services!

We have some other news about updates that are going on with the software images that I’ll put on in the next couple of days.
