Why you should attend the CALI Conference this June in Milwaukee

If you are on this list, you are a Teknoid, and if you are a Teknoid,
you should attend the CALI Conference this June in Milwaukee.

http://conference.cali.org/2011

The Conference for Law School Computing (a.k.a. CALI Conference) was
conceived to be a place where techies, law librarians and faculty
could get together and talk about projects, applications, workflow,
staffing and new ideas that had some technical aspect. The common
theme was law schools + technology. 21 years ago, this was a small
crowd (we had about 70 attendees at the first conference), but today,
a lot of technology is moving into the woodwork – effectively
disappearing.

We no longer have sessions that compare Word to WordPerfect or how to
convince faculty to use email or student printing. Clay Shirky once
said “When technology disappears, that's when things get interesting”.
This too is true for us. It's not so much about the technology,
it's about the social network. If you are involved in technology at
your law school, you should come to the conference, learn about cool
things that others are doing at their law schools, take them back to
your law school and take credit for thinking them up. The CALI
Conference is a greatest crowd-sourced, educational opportunity you
will find for your job.

The conference fee, hotel and travel costs may be prohibitive for your
institution, but here are some things you should know.

- almost all of your meals are covered – breakfast, lunch all three
days, dinner on 1 day, tons of snacks and drinks in between.

- I guarantee that you will learn at least one thing that will MORE
than pay for the cost of the conference in the coming year.

- These are your colleagues and if you make a little effort, your
friends. They deal with the same problems you do, they work in the
same environment and they are most likely to hire you if you decide to
change cities.

- There are 30 minute breaks between every session and lunch is 90
minutes long. This is to give you plenty of time to decompress
between sessions and talk about things with other attendees. I have
often gotten more out of the conference from these conversations than
the sessions.

- The agenda is assembled practically at the last minute so that the
topics are fresh and current.

If you are a CIO/Director of IT, consider sending some of your
front-line folks to rejuvenate their excitement about their jobs.
There are 200 law schools in the US and it's plain silly for each one
to re-invent the wheel every time they have to deal with a
technical/social/administration project. Someone, somewhere has
already solved your problem and they are probably talking about it at
the CALI Conference.

We are starting to run out of reserved hotel rooms in Milwaukee, so
make your reservations NOW NOW NOW.

Regards,
John

RE: Why you should attend the CALI Conference this June inMilwa

Hello everyone! I have a question for the group. Do any of you network admins
out there utilize roaming profiles for your students staff and faculty? I
have researched and found out that windows xp Roaming profiles are not
compatible with Windows 7 roaming profiles. I have read a few tips and tricks
to get around this but was curious if anyone has experience in:
A.) getting users off of roaming profiles and the impact it may cause
with say "Application data"
B.) ensuring all data is recovered and moved accordingly. Desktop
loaded with docs for example.

Thanks in advance for all of your help and ideas,

RE: Why you should attend the CALI Conference this JuneinMilwau

Hi Matthew,
Yes, we use roaming profiles for all our faculty, staff, and students. I sometimes hate them with a passion but for the most part, they work well. If we choose to migrate our AD to main campus, our users will be forced into local profiles. That causes me great angst. I'm quite sure that the librarians who roam from computer to computer and the faculty who like to use the faculty library will not be happy, and I'm not inclined to copy their local profile to every machine they might use. (That was main campus' answer to how to live with a local profile...)
We are just now upgrading to Win7 (this summer) and are still trying to determine what we will do. We lecture about a profile not being a good place to store stuff but I am well aware that most people do. (Every once in awhile, on a quiet Friday afternoon, I'll start a search on the profiles share to look for music, video, pictures, etc...and will let people know that it needs to be deleted or moved to a file share if it's work-related. But I rarely point out documents on desktops other than the regular email to everyone, reminding them to use their personal file share and not their profile.)
I'm actually inclined to start everyone out with a clean profile and keep the old ones around until we're sure we've moved everything that needs moved. I'm sure our wonderful sys admin can write a script that will move most of it.

RE: Roaming profiles windows xp to windows 7

I'm not sure. I'd love to get rid of them but what we'll probably end up doing is copying their documents over to their personal file shares and writing some scripts that map their printers for them. It's also a problem b/c of mapped drives but we always upgrade people in batches (starting with the faculty support so they can help out their faculty members) so while I suspect there will be a lot of one-on-one profile fixes, it shouldn't be too overwhelming.
Harder to deal with are the programs that tend to put themselves in the profile. I know that some of the Adobe products want to do that. Ugh...

RE: Roaming profiles windows xp to windows 7

Yes agreed! I am having some luck with testing Folder redirection (my docs
and Desktop) to catch their stuff. Then possibly remove the roaming profile
and do not enable for future students! Staff and faculty will be an animal in
itself do to large profiles. It's a shame that Win7 profiles are not
compatible with XP profiles. Really doesn't make any sense! But then again.
Its Microsoft...

Have a great day!
