open source visitor badge software

I recently had a requirement to build a visitor badge system but didn't have any cash.So i created my own software! I build what I am calling for lack of a better termphpvisitorbadge. Runs on PHP has a SQL backed and will catalog and log your visitorsfrom multiple locations and also give you a sign out ability. I actually reverseengineered the idea from someone but came out with a dandy product. So if you havea LAMP like install sitting around let me know what you think. IN the next week ifI get time I will set up a demo site with the server software running. I added somesecurity to the page but not a lot as its intended for internal use only. HoweverI am curious on how much people could hack it if I let them.

Whats Wrong with Windows 7 in the office place.

Im going on record here, as I think I have some ground breaking news for microsoft.I just finished playing around with a copy of windows 7 and I have this to say…

“Why do I have any need to use windows 7”

Its a waste of time, here is what I see in windows 7 a bunch of speedy bloated operatingsystem toys for multimedia users and kids. Windows7 Serves no purpose in a enterpriseenvironment.

I might be proven wrong but I dont see any reason for enterprise to upgrade to anyOS other then being forced. Why as a IT director would I ever want to start installinga mess of OS that is new bigger and has the word “store in my media vault”all over it. Poo on windows 7. My operating system is meant to do one thing …providea API to hardware for my applications. If I wanted something that poped shot fireworksand plays videos I would buy a Mac and never get any work done with it..

 

Message to microsoft …stop making enterprise tools bubbley. its work. not aplace for a 4 year old to print pictures and send them to grandma.
