Ever tried OpenMeetings (http://openmeetings.apache.org)? It has a whiteboard in it and I have been in group discussions using it, voice and video. Not as good as a face to face but better than having to travel especially when weather makes it difficult. I think Google Hangouts does something like that too but have not tried it.
which really will not work in areas that experience a monsoon season during the summer seasons. For example in Arizona the monsoon season starts beginning of July and last through September. The monsoon (not a weather service term for you purists) is typically when the dew point is at 55 degrees for 3 days. Guess when a swamp cooler looses effectiveness? When the wet bulb is at 55 degrees. So it is only useful during 2 months of the year in the U.S. desert souhwest.
I wear them all of the time and have not a problem with using them with multiple or single monitor computers. The first time I ever put them on there was about 30 seconds of disorientation until I go used to them. You also need to be sure to use the right frames.
However there are people where I work who can not wear any type of bifocals so they use 2 different glasses. They have tried progressive and traditional bifocals in various combinations of frames but still are unable to use them.
As someone pointed out you have to have some idea of the project you are looking for. I have found many software projects on Freshmeat/Freecode just by going there 3 or 4 times a week. Sometimes there will be things listed that I had not given any thought to and then I see it listed there found it intriguing went to the web page and checked it out. Later on I would go back and download it because I would recall months later when the need arised it was there. Trying do that with google, what would be the search string, "New software"? Especially for us not searching for anything specific and just wanted to find new open source software in general.
I seem to recall that years and years ago Steve Ciarcia wrote a series of article in his Circuit Cellar magazine about making sensors and a home built EEG. If I recall correctly it used relatively inexpensive parts and off the shelf sensors when necessary. All designed for the hobbyist and much lower in cost. Of course I may be wrong. But still wondering, whats the big hoo haw about something this expensive?
find out if safety gadgets will help them improve their maintenance standards
Beekeeper, distiller, brewer, weaver, apothecary, farrier, metal worker, farmer and lots of other occupations in the same line. Without technology or reliable power all of this will become more critical and more labor intensive requiring above average skills.
crowbars, prybars, hammers and chisels, seen them all used on the boxes. Plus in some areas will be like a watering hole in the wild. All of the predators will gather there waiting.
I recall some time back when law enforcement and the postal inspectors were pointing out that cluster mailboxes just makes it easier to steal mail. Particularly as all of the mail is now located in one spot. So now we'll have an even higher density of mail to be stolen?
sounds an awful lot like military basic training.
