AGM 2014 Prize Draw Winner


Recommended Posts



We are pleased to announce that at our AGM on 8th October, 2014, the Prize Draw for a Free Consultancy Day worth £750 was held and has been won by Mr. Howard Coleman from H.S. Coleman Limited.


Howard Coleman, Managing Director, H.S. Coleman Limited commented: “It was a very nice surprise to hear that we had won the Free Consultancy Day. 


As a small broker I greatly value the work that the User Group conducts on our behalf and I know that a lot of the improvements to the system are as a result of representations made by the User Group to Open GI.  Without this group I am not sure we would have had as many of the enhancements to the system that we have seen over the past few years.


Winning the prize will give us the opportunity to assess what parts of the system we are not using that might, if used, help improve the running of our business.


Please convey my thanks to everybody for the great work they do for the User Group over the course of the year.”

    • Hi Val - I've not heard this being an issue generally - very strange. OGI will be best to investigate. Would be good to know the outcome!!   Just a thought - is it only the extract / csv with the issue - or does the full printed report still not report these?  
    • Has anyone else come across this problem, we are getting quite a few cases where the renewal is not populating on the list.  OGI have been looking at this from the copy CSV lists we have sent them, but have not resolved this issue yet. 
    • Open GI Sanction Check Update!   Function shortfall now on the #OpenGI radar - watch this space! 
    • Partnership deals that are in the interests of Open-GI's profits and not the best infrastructure for their clients. HP - (30% returns from printers to servers when I worked for a HP partner. Haven't been pleasantly surprised with 6 more years of dealing with their hardware). Microsoft - Oh ook another 60 security holes and a zero-day (M$ product zero-days can only be fixed or mitigated by Microsoft) that has been actively exploited for over two months now. Sophos - Tavis Ormandy of Google's top security team, charitably wrote a 30 page paper, which concludes that the company was "working with good intentions" but is "ill-equipped to handle the output of one co-operative security researcher working in his spare time". Recently, they forced through Multi-Factor Authentication for their "cloud" management site (which has a really useless, coutnerintuitve and uninformative interface), that is completely useless in a ransomware take over, you could easily be left without access to your "cloud". They should implement physical keys if they are going to push for this, not software methods that can be taken over as part of an attack. 
    • The real question for Open GI is why is only 1 browser supported?   Why do you think that is?   10 points for each correct answer …
