I seriously doubt that most countries, including mine, have all that data in a digital format. For better or worse, most of the world still runs either on paper forms or no paper trail at all.

Comment A hotel/motel (Score 1) 508

I like coding somewhere where I don't have anything I have to do except code. A hotel/motel with wifi is a great place because it has very little distractions (people, chores,...) and it's extremely confortable. Having a king size bed or a couch just for yourself and your laptop can help your concentration. Unfortunately, this costs money, so this isn't a good solution for everyday coding.

Comment Zenwalk Linux (Score 1) 466

I've been running Zenwalk on my EEE 901 for months now and haven't had much trouble. I wouldn't suggest it for people who like everything working out of the box, since I had to install both wifi and eth drivers on my own, so you don't have any connectivity in the beginning. You should definitely try the OS you're considering on a virtual machine first, just to be sure that you like it. Also, whichever distro you choose, you'll have to do your homework first ;)

why not use the users then? have them help each other :) have tech support that can help you with basic stuff and have users answering each other's questions on the forums/chat. do you happen to know what are actual expenses for small ISPs these days? what kind of personnel, equipment and software do they need?
