+ - No more Groklaw-> 1

scsirob (246572) writes "Word is out that PJ has pulled the plug on Groklaw. A source of education on US law, patents, SCO versus IBM and much more stops. PJ simply cannot justify to herself to stay connected in a world that is under constant surveillance. The Internet as it stands today is a threat to humanity, she explains.

+ - Novell scales down developer support

Submitted by scsirob
scsirob (246572) writes "Novell has maintained free developer support for many years on it's news server. Just yesterday, all novell.devsup.* newsgroups received the following message: "This forum is now closed to new traffic but will remain open in a read-only status for reference purposes. Novell has made the decision to phase out forums for API Developer support excep for GroupWise. Novell partners with a valid agreement will continue to be supported via your existing contract. Customers with developer related questions are welcome to post messages in the technical support forums which are not oficially monitored by Novell, but are used for user-to-user conversations regarding Novell products. You can find the link to the technical support forums at http://www.novell.com/forums" Is Novell not interested in helping out developers for their products anymore? Could this be related to the Microsoft agreement?"
Education

+ - How to get your kids kick-started with computers?

scsirob writes "When I first started playing with computers (25 years ago), they were relatively easy to understand. Intel 8080 chips, TRS-80 Model 1 and CP/M isn't exactly rocket science. I tought myself how to program in assembly and later in C. I now design little gadgets with embedded processors and program them, and I write diagnostics software on a range of O/Ses. My kids (8 and 10 years old) are starting to get interested too and want me to teach them how to do all this. But I find that their level of expectation is waaay to high. They want to design games without any basic knowlegde. So my question is, how do you 'bootstrap' kids into computer knowledge to a comfortable level without turning them off or disappointing them?"

We all like praise, but a hike in our pay is the best kind of ways.
