I work at a large international development charity in London, as International Operations Manager. I manage a team of Regional ICT Service Managers, based in developing world countries, who keep our users happy through fixing problems, setting up great connectivity and generally making sure users can do their day jobs.

I previously worked at the same place as International Network Systems Analyst. I looked after a bunch of ICT systems in offices in the developing world, as well as looking after systems in our HQ. I gained a lot of knowledge in that job, and the techy side competes with the people stuff in the new role, hence I still hang out here a lot.

I'm passionate about the use of ICT in developing countries, both in terms of dealing with the inherent problems for ICT in those places, and using ICT as a tool for development.

comment OS X software for copying from Windows File Shares
I wasn't aware of an OOB box method that will do that with a Windows File Server. I'd accept an answer that gave the OOB method.

comment Using iMac in Home Cinema
Hi - assuming that "1. I don't see why that would be necessary" is in answer to the question about blanking the screen on the iMac. Necessary, because if you can't blank the iMac screen then an annoying amount of light will be visible from the iMac screen when viewing from a projector in the same room. Like being sat in the cinema next to someone who is constantly checking their bright smart phone...

I need to know whether the Dolby Signal is output to the Thunderbolt port. The specs for adapters connected to that port don't tell me if the signal is there to pass through in the first place...

Yes - I see that audio is possible through MDP to HDMI adapters, but I am specifically interested in whether Dolby, DTS etc signals will be sent. Audio could just mean stereo.
