MyPC three weeks on

After a great deal of work we can report that MyPC has been working continuously for three weeks. The problems we have been having seem to have been caused by a bug in the quick book form allowing bookings to be made which ignore certain booking rules. We have turned off the quickbook method of booking PCs and this seems to have solved the problem.

Over the summer we will be evaluating PC bookings, including a new version of MyPC which should fix the problems we have been having and also remove the problem where students get logged out at 11:59pm. We will also be looking at other products, including one from Pharos.

But for now it ‘s nice to have MyPC working. We can never guarantee there won't be future problems but it's looking good.
