It's all over! Check out the Results here
Due to an "accidental" ;-) over order of Raspberry Pi units we need to give a few of these things away.
Our solution: Share them with the EduGeek community and have a laugh at the same time.
We've created a competition for EduGeekers using the geekiest feature of PaperCut: Print Scripting
Your job: Make a print script that creatively entertains us and the EduGeek community.
Win Raspberry Pi and more
Of course we're giving away some geeky prizes.
Raspberry Pi Pack: The Raspberry Pi Model B, Pi Case, 8GB SD Card
2nd & 3rd Place
Raspberry Pi Model B Raw Board + Pi Case
Not quite geeky enough.
Example 1: Funding the party!
Chris was a SysAdmin at Parkdale High in Melbourne. He was always annoyed that the IT group never got their own end of year party. His solution: raise party funds with a print script that runs a clandestine gambling racket by allowing student bet their print credit. Check out Chris' demo video
Watch Chris explain his scheme.
Turn your print balance into a degenerate fun-time or check out his code.
Example 2: The IQ Test
Being a SysAdmin for a School in Auckland, Kent would come across an annoying problem on a weekly occurrence. Students would be printing to the IT department's printer! He has solved this problem by implementing a print script that tests if you know as much as the IT department before you can print.
