The MCC USB-1024HLS Digital I/O box wants me to run their InstaCal software before I can use it from python. When installing it on a new computer, install their drivers and then run that program once.
Next time I get to do some math I should check out SAGE .
From engadget . I read about this display technology years ago. I'm glad to hear it is nearing commercialization.
I used the SVN approach this time. Very simple to set up and it seemed to work fine. In the future I should just have to type
Flexible keyboards like this, this and this are super cheap and readily available. I wonder if we could use them to make an alternative keyboard for people with physical, visual, or cognitive disabilities?
I fooled with turning on Desktop Effects in Gutsy. They were on by default on my R60 laptop but wouldn't start on my desktop machine with an nVidia Quadro4 900 XGL driving two projectors. I found the nvidia-settings tool very helpful and realized after some web browsing that I could turn off xinerama and enable TwinView. Doing that plus adding the

in my .xsession-errors file. I googled around a bit and found a suggestion to try moving aside the .gnome2 folder. I did that and things appeared to work for one or two logins. Then back to hanging.
I think making music with loops could make an exciting activity for kids with a variety of disabilities. Unfortunately I know next to nothing about it. I'm collecting links to useful looking pages so I can think about ways to enable kids to play with music.
My previous despair faded and I'm giving Gutsy another try. Configuring my disks so that I have two partitions available for OS installs made it easy to try things as I got the chance.

I've been annoyed for months by my laptop selecting my neighbor's access point over mine. On every startup I'd have to make sure I was using our network. I looked a few times but apparently with the wrong search terms. The answer is to use gconf-editor as described here . One point that momentarily fooled me, you do not want to use sudo for this.
