Due to the enormous response to my posting Monday we’ve setup an automated method to request access to the new beta material.  To access the new material login to your account and click on the upgrade link to the right of the “R&S Lab Workbook Volume I v4.1″ link.  You’ll be sent an email with instructions on how to use our new locklizard pdf reader, and you’ll see a new course subscription in the members site for the new content access.  The documents can be printed twice each, but viewed an unlimited amount of times.

If you are going to use our rack rentals for configuring the labs there are some major feature enhancements that we’ve been working on.  You can now load initial configs, save your configs, and reload your saved configs on demand to any rack session that you have.  Next to your active rack session you’ll see a link that says “Beta CP” for the new control panel.

Please let me know what you think of the new content format and any ways that we can improve it.

    I understand that you have to protect your documents, but this seems to be to much. You will track the live of your customers, because you get connects from every place people travel to. You will know when the customers learn, how often they learn, how long learnig goes, how often they try a topic or lab.

    What happens to the data? Will you protect my privacy? What are you going to do with the data? Does the Locklizard connect to your servers, or do we give all the data to other companies we do not know?

    There are many questions you will have to answer to your customers.

    Security is ok, but to much is to much.



  2. Hi Wilhelm,

    The server is used just to authenticate document access, not to run any statistics on when or where you access the documents from. Also we host the locklizard server ourselves internally so no one else has access to its data from the outside.
