Grrr.... I just spent 30min typing up a reply and had it eaten. Does this thing have a time out or something equally silly?

I work at my schools IT department as well (great place for volunter hours, 2 hours a day times 4 years :D), and its amazing how simple we've made the system when you look at it on a whole:
1)Login name is your name.year
2)Pass is your ID thats been engraved into you head since you came to the district.
3)Word, IE, and My Docs, and "Apps" are the only icons on the desktop.
4)The start menu has: "Log Off, Shut down, and the programs folder which has about 20 icons.
Thing is, it works really well. Untill you try to do somthing actually useful

Good article.
