IDEAS FOR “TELL US WHAT YOU KNOW” SESSIONS:
- Wireless - How to get stats on wireless users without requiring users to login with username/pswds/barcodes ie open access?
- Remote access
- FTP files for website: finding the right credentials, interface and settings
- What to do about Microsoft Office as they move to “cloud” technology and the pricing model changes?
