Cool mom and Linux

Ooh! And I tried walking my mom through the process of getting the Linux box at home on the Net and ssh'able - they turned it off last night and I'd forgotten to tell it to automatically run ssh and ddclient. I love my mom. It takes a really special mom to have to deal with all of those cryptic Linux commands...

I hadn't quite gotten it to work - guess I forgot something pretty major - but hey, it was really wonderful of her to try.

I can't wait to actually get it working. =)

I'm actually tempted to set up one of those shared screen things....

So tough luck, guys, I win the coolest mom contest. ;)

Special thanks go to my parents, who have been incredibly supportive not just during this time of crisis but all throughout my life. =)

Computer Aided Instruction (school, education)

I think I'll go for HTML. If animation is necessary, then I'll use Flash. I won't be able to reach the auditory/kinetic people as much, but I'll be able to provide them with more material.

The module definitely has to be downloadable and 'runnable' on any system.

Sleepy. Was rewriting script. I think I've got a much better idea now.

Computers

I spent the whole day looking for a subnotebook. The LifeBook and PictureBook look very interesting, but I definitely need a 2.5" to 3.5" IDE connector.

Started setting up a mail server. Cyrus21 is weird. Might be a good idea to make the IntranetServer next weekend's project.

Laptop’s death

My laptop died. Again. It's really not the hard disk - I think it's the laptop itself. Must definitely find subnotebook that I can install Linux onto. Must decide between 8.9" and 10" display.
