video confession 7

In this “video confession” you get a short trip around our “Office” and meet some members from IT systems, Centime and the design team – apologies for the sound on this one. 

Muctarr gives us the clap as our guest clapper board operator this week.

I have have been looking at the new tablets – the Toshiba M700 is well specified, has a touch sensitive screen and has 802.11n wifi built in. It will be interesting to see what a difference the touch screen might make to tablet operation.

We have installed our first 802.11n wifi access point – this is a really hot product (literally). We have found it to run quite hot and that proper mounting to maintain airflow is important for reliable operation – we have mounted the test unit on the ceiling in our office. The timing is good as we have just got some client machines with 802.11n (the Toshiba M700 tablets)

Richard recently went to see the Cirque du Soleil and is doing several things all at the same time (multi-tasking)  – researching the new short throw data projectors,  processing orders and preparing a master system for a computer maintenance class  mabe next week we can get to see him juggling.

Abdul presents his new “back of an envelope design” and talks about his work in programming for the helpdesk for our Estates team and in trying to make the helpdesk  more flexible by replacing  certain “hard coded” elements with veriable user specified elements.

Muctarr from the Centime team is operating the Centime helpdesk and working on some problems with the Course evaluation review system.

Jonny from the design team talks about his work on a project called “in a nutshell” – using small vieo clips for subjects on the student portal.

  3. Touch screen Tablet’s??

    Sounds great. Thinking about it now, the fact you could only use the Tablet screen features only with the use of a stylus was a bit limited.

  4. Was the camera pointing at a mirror?

    Either that or I need new contact lenses.

  5. The video is made from a little smartphone (Vodaphone 1615)

    Sound is poor – we need to project our voices a bit better – OK close up though.

    Miror image on this one – the device has 2 cameras – one facing out and one facing in (for video conferencing) I clicked a different setting this time which I didn;t know existed – gived you a mirror view – weird.
