The ACT Government has set up an IT helpdesk for community organisations.
Apparently community organisations often have troubles with their IT equipment but have had nowhere to turn to in the past.
â€œCommunity organisations make a valuable contribution to the Canberra community and this IT Helpdesk will assist them in accessing IT support, enabling them to deliver their services even more efficiently,â€ Mr Hargreaves said.
Infoxchange Australia has been selected to provide IT telephone and other web-based support to the 150 community organisations during the 12-month long pilot program.
A friend who often has to give (free) IT assistance to people who almost know what they’re doing (like me) commented, “Pity those poor bastards! Providing support to unknown (and cheapo) third party systems!”
