Apache now all systems go!

Follow-up to Confirmation of Web Space in DCS from Designing a Student Portal

Though I have not looked at the system myself, David successfully set up the Apache server in DCS for the Penguin project in the past couple of days. Well done David… we're now ready to roll!

Observations of My.WBS

As a user of My.WBS, an extreme example of something which occurs quite often caught my attention – one topic, and six or seven different resources available to download for it…

1. Why couldn't all of those resources have been attached to a single message?
2. Why do you lose sight of the other relevant resources once you have selected one of them? Compare this to say Microsoft Outlook – you can read a message and still see your Inbox.
3. Why do I have to download a Word/Excel document just to find out what group I'm in or the exact wording of an assignment?

These are definite design issues I need to look at – I should be interested to see if there any similar comments made in my survey results.
