Calling all School Administrators
Novell Cool Solutions: Feature
Digg This -
Posted: 27 Sep 2002
In response to popular and persistent demand, we're creating a brand-new Cool Solutions site fashioned by and for system administrators working in the world's schools. You are a huge and loyal part of the Novell Cool Communities, and we think it's high time you had a room with a view of the world the way you see it.
Viruses, juvenile hackers, students with an uncontrollable need to AIM each other in the lab. Sneaky devils who leave nasty wallpaper on every computer they touch. Teachers who forget to logout and leave confidential information in plain sight. Budget cuts. Staff cuts. You know the drill.
You're not alone. We're here for you. Whether or not you use Novell products (yet), we want to help. We'll discuss stuff like how to craft a Security Policy for your school and how to block file-swapping programs; we'll share ideas on how to keep kids from surfing the web during class; we'll share nifty tools (both free-based and fee-based) that will help you take charge of your network and keep the packets flowing.
We're creating an online Geek Boutique packed with ingenious gadgets to inspire envy in others and you can either buy them or earn points to win them. We're even working on a system for you to find a bit of freelance work on the side (so you'll have some extra money to spend in the store...).
If you're an IT professional working in an academic environment, we'd love to hear from you. Send us any ideas about what you'd like to see on the site (even if it's not about a Novell product), and we'll send you a Cool Solutions shirt. (If you'd like to be on our Advisory Board, mention that too. It's going to be a rollicking good time.)
Hope to hear from you soon!
