Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it

Writing about web page

A university spokesman [...] claimed that the attack has no bearing on the security of the University server. Unitemps does not use the University's secure server and so "any lessons to be learned would not apply to the rest of the network."

In other words… "it couldn't happen here"! You have to wonder why we'd go to the bother of learning any lessons at all.

Year 05/06

It's now officially academic year 2005/6. OMR rolled over without any problem, happily.

The new Checklists application was supposed to go live today, but it depends on ADS, and that's had some delays – the server that died with the newest backup a week old, the Oracle 10g problem that took a week to sort out, and miscellaneous data quality problems that I'd allowed a couple of weeks to solve but it's taken even longer than that. It's no big deal – we can go on using the prototype Checklist and go live with the new one when it's good and ready, hopefully before the start of term.

It's a pity in a way though, because it would have been the only new piece of software to be produced by the MLE programme this year (admittedly a very, very small piece). As it is, in the 04/05 academic year, the MLE programme (of which I'm Technical Lead) delivered no new products at all, we just supported and enhanced the existing ones and planned, designed and developed ones that will go live in 05/06.
