Not only that but OpenWRT does not support it at this time.
The likelihood is that they have Software Assurance anyway so are covered for whatever version of MS Office they choose to run on whatever version of Windows they want to support.
If the IS staff deem an upgrade required there will be a time/people cost of sorts (although remember the staff will be employed doing X anyway so it's more a scheduling priority) but not an licensing upgrade cost.
It genuinely was down at one point yesterday (around 7pm BST onwards... not sure when it was usable again).
I couldn't even log into the uplay website much less authenticate my game. Interestingly it was partially working as it would try to authenticate and then the uplay application would crash - I assume with some sort of null pointer error
Since I had already started it once earlier in the day though before uplay services took a nose dive disabling my network interface allowed me to start uplay in offline mode (I could then re-enable the interface after choosing offline) and play the game fine - just without the multiplayer features.
Well when Oracle published and were pushing this it didn't exactly foster good feelings:
One of the most interesting bits of the announcement for me is the deprecation (and future removal) of the SRPMS at ftp.redhat.com
Instead the sources will be provided directly at git.centos.org
That could have very interesting implications on SciLi/OEL...
I use USB passthrough with my KVM guests fine on Fedora 19
Have Windows (XP and 7) VMs with full virtio drivers installed along with the SPICE agent etc etc
With Microsoft/Motorola, Oracle/Google, SCO/IBM, Apple/Samsung still going on in the background will the legal implications of technology companies fade from view without the light that has been shined on them over the years?
SCO was ridiculed in no small part to researchers at the site.
Oracle was shown to have severe misunderstandings of the Java licenses.
Microsoft was forced out of the background.
When PJ last retired she passed the site over to another but recently she's been managing it herself again. This closure notice appears pretty final however.
What now for legal blogs in the technological world?

But did any version of MS Office actually use the ISO/IEC 29500:2008 standard in the end?
There was so much hand waving and so on - especially given the Office spec this was based on used the ECMA standard - and a few ethereal promises later on
But did they ever (so far as was possible given the appalling state of the spec) actually get to implementing what was agreed on?
This appears to be SOP for him throughout the comments...
It's sad really - seems a different Rob Weir from several years back and the OOXML ISO saga
I'm rapidly mentally filing him under the same categories I keep the likes of Florian Muller and Miguel de Icaza in...
