Now I'm not saying that when the OU calendar project started I didn't mutter something about this, and when I went to a calendar project 'consultation' I didnlt just reel off some of the Google calendar features as requests (ah - ok, I did, I admit it, but only because they were features I wanted and the goog calendar offernd them...) but - err - I've lost the thread...

Anyway - compare http://ouseful.open.ac.uk/calendar, and - err - the memorable http://vledemo.open.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=135 (ah - you have to login... ok, if you do, compare the calendar there with the one here: http://vledemo.open.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=69

Now call me a google freak, but I know which I prefer...


Breaking news...

In order to 'keep up' with software developer's 'yes, but, OUR needs are different mantra', computing services announced today that their hardware requirements were too specialised to use commodity components from Intel, Sun and other server processor manufacturers.

Instead, an in-house developer team has been commissioned - Sid, a humanities specialising GSCE student on day release - who has been given a £2.43 budget and told to see what he can do with a couple of NAND gates... The new in-house developed server farm is expected c.2037 with an anticipated capacity equivalent to a ZX81 without the wobbly memory pack.
