I have also tried using Excel, floorplanner, and am currently on smart draw which isn't free but is about as close to what I want that I have found.  I also looked at tigercad but it had some quirks that I couldn't get past.

129  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / need to create a basic floor plan on: December 01, 2012, 10:19:16 AM
I am looking to create a very basic floor plan of our school to use as a "map" of the rooms.  All I think that I need is something that will allow me to create a square, rectangle, and lines.  Also an eraser and to put in text.  I have tried Dia, Sketchup 8, but they are too complicated or too quirky for me, Sad  Draft IT won't run on my W7 box.  an online solution would also work.  Something free would be nice.

any suggestions?

Our school switched this past summer to Office 365 for Education, which the basic Exchange Online is free for them.  25 gb storage for each mailbox.  it was a pain to get the mailboxes copied over but we have been satisfied since then.  I didn't do the setup on it but was there watching the other guy do it.

We had a 12 year old Dell server that had one bad hard drive and one bad power supply in it.  Glad it waited until we were done with the switch before they went. 

It has good junk mail detection, webmail is good and we can also use Outlook with it.

seems like I inquired about him way back when.  Was told more or less if memory serves me correctly that he didn't have time anymore.  I don't remember if there was a job change or what.

I am sure Mouser could enlighten us... inquiring minds want to know!

None of the keyboards I have boughten have had the "keyboard condom".  They came in a plastic bag.   I live in the heartland of America.

I guess its better late than never, although I was starting to think it was going to be the latter.   cheesy
134  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: advanced paste program on: October 28, 2012, 06:19:09 AM
file copying is not one of those things that I have ever thought to "experiment" with.  Usually when I need to copy, I need to copy stuff.  but I have tried TerraCopy and some others but that was to get around Windows stopping the copying procedure because something hiccuped.   Sad

I do wish MS would fix that.
135  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: advanced paste program on: October 28, 2012, 06:07:26 AM
Ath, are you sure the "replace" leaves all files from both folders there?  I thought it would overwrite the first folder with the files from the second folder.  But I have never checked it out.

Why does it seem like every other OS version that Microsoft comes out with seem to be a bust??
141  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows Updates has hosed my system... Help! on: August 11, 2012, 10:11:00 AM
Well things are looking up.  After a good ol' fashion shutdown and turn back on, things are finally working. 

Guess I panicked too soon.

thanks for the help!
142  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows Updates has hosed my system... Help! on: August 11, 2012, 08:19:39 AM
system restore is turned off.  I have not tried safe mode yet.  I just wondered what my options were.
143  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Windows Updates has hosed my system... Help! on: August 11, 2012, 08:07:21 AM
Yesterday my Win 7 Pro desktop was stuck in a "Installing 1 of 14 updates" for hours... like 8 hours.  I (grudgingly) powered it down thinking it was stuck.  And now when powering up it is stuck at "loading desktop".

Is there a fix without reloading windows?
144  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Win7 user is admin but cannot install programs on: July 20, 2012, 07:35:44 AM
Thanks for the heads up, SJ.  I will create a seperate GPO that does just what you suggested.
145  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Win7 user is admin but cannot install programs on: July 20, 2012, 05:43:57 AM
Now that I am deploying Win7 Pro 32 bit at my school, I have noticed that my staff cannot install any software or anything else that requires admin privileges.  The are set as an admin on their machine.  UAC is turned off.  I have tried "run as administrator".  If I log in as the administrator on the local machine, I can install it.

I ending up getting an error like "invalid short file name username.user".   It seems that most of the problems come when the machine is on a domain... which we are.  The fixes all talk about changing a registry key from a domain/profiles to %userprofiles%username.

My question is why does this happen (if anyone knows)?  And is there anything that I can do to keep it from happening during the setup of the machine?  They are clean installs, no upgrades.

thanks in advance,

Dave

I too like TaoPhoenix have struggled with this very problem.  Not sure why it has to be so difficult.  Extract Now looks interesting, can it put the zip file in the extracted folder?  I cannot tell from their screenshots.
148  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Test: Does latency reduction via RAM upgrade lift software performance? on: April 14, 2012, 05:23:37 AM
Is the Windows Experience Index an accurate tool to measure with?  Its interesting to note that the base score didn't improve much if any.  So I wonder, what kind of upgrade can one do to increase the base score?

If that much.  Its also difficult to think that people would want to tie up their phone lines for an hour or two just to read the paper.   cheesy

Its hard to believe back in 81, there were that many people willing to spend the money on computers, dial up access just to read the paper!  $5 per hour for access, compared to today it would be like $20 per hour.
