Laptop got scared

Yes, it’s me.

Apparently my laptop got scared and is cooperating again. I’ve backed
up the rest of my data and should manage to survive nuclear fallout
and the like.

Still considering going for a real wearable…

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.

Hey, I think this actually works.
