April 11, 2003 - Categories: geek

A Slashdot comment on notebooks in Japan led me to http://panasonic.jp/pc/products/r1m/index.html (960g, a bit heavier than my PCG-U1’s 820g).

Text input methods — wearable, input

April 11, 2003 - Categories: geek

Could a Palm user please check out
http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/atomik and see if it’s any good? If
so, I’d love an image or text file of the keyboard layout so that I

disappeared. No idea what’s wrong with yvonne’s setup since mine
works, and have been trying to figure out what’s wrong. No clue.

I was tracking down a Redhat Japanese language support problem for

conversion, but it wasn’t straightforward, so he or she is doing a
reinstall. Wish I could have helped more.

Marco Changho informs me of my schedule as a new faculty member.

Ok, Sacha.  We'll have you aboard in the summer.  You will teach CS 21a and the
