Comprehension and Retention

Sun, 19 Nov 2006 08:52:01 +0000

This is important because a difference in either, or both, comprehension and retention, would mean that a wide range of significant endeavours, from stock market and related financial decision making to public education, have been more affected by the transition from paper to screen than we previously understood.

How and why to use Sun Ray

Wed, 16 Aug 2006 05:45:44 +0000

I've just moved from Ontario back to my home province of Alberta - where the Sun shines, the air is clean, and the economy is booming. During the move we ran a series of eight chapter summaries, or notes to myself, for a possible book on how and why to use Sun's Sun Ray thin clients and smart displays along with a guest blog written by frequent contributor Roger Ramjet.

Are Wi-Fi security myths good for deterrence?

Tue, 24 Jan 2006 02:10:08 +0000

"SSID suppression", "DHCP restrictions", and "MAC filtering" are a huge waste of time. If you absolutely can't run good WPA security, just turn on WEP for some real deterrence. Having said that, it's ironic that WPA-PSK security when used correctly has no known method of being cracked yet it's even easier to deploy than WEP which is breakable in a couple of minutes. WEP on the other hand is much easier to deploy than MAC filtering which is breakable in a matter of seconds using freely available GUI tools that run on Linux.

Can you make Linux easy?

So why do people hate Windows?

Mon, 28 Nov 2005 17:00:51 +0000

Windows winds down hardware. As time goes by, patches and updates and upgrades and necessary applications load my box up with code that hogs my memory, and takes up CPU cycles, until the memory and cycles needed for new work magically disappear. Then you're supposed to replace the box, and over time buy new software.

Does Windows rule?

Mon, 28 Nov 2005 16:29:46 +0000

it's possible to see this report as wrong on all counts, and not only credit theauthors with a legitimate attempt to come to grips with a real problem but feel sorry for thembecause what they ended up, in all innocence, writing a case study on how not to deploy Linux.

Bloggie asks, Linux on a Mac?

Fri, 14 Oct 2005 10:26:50 +0000

I'd consider going to Linux from Mac OS X a a bit of a downgrade - so why do it? especially when you've got an XP box handy for which any Linux would be an upgrade?

Build or buy, Bloggie?

Thu, 13 Oct 2005 08:39:28 +0000

It's all about retail mark-ups, which are usually twice what the box cost when it came in the door. Do that with one box and $300 becomes $600. Do that with a bunch of boxes, shipped separately, and it can be $700.

'Lightweight' Linux?

Wed, 14 Sep 2005 11:48:51 +0000

Vectorlinux isn't the only choice and I'm notsaying it's any better than the others,but I am saying you should pick one and stick with it becauseeventually you'll stop doing this - andwhoever takes over will have an easier time (meaning that your clients will have an easier time)if you standardized early on.
