So the internet voted and decided that Barbie's next job is computer engineering.. Having grown up playing with Barbies, gotten into computer programming through the Barbie fashion games (which I wanted to hack for better options), and finishing up a computer engineering degree, I think this has gotta be one of the most awesome things ever. But, I wonder if it'll have any effect on actual female participation in the major, which currently hovers in the 11% percent range (translating into 1 or 2 female compE's in a class.)
I'm part of my schools IGVC team and we're upgrading our bot's computer to an onboard mini-itx. Most of the access to the box is gonna be through ssh, but I want a terminal I can just mount on the bot for convenience/monitoring. Bidding on a PSOne lcd already, but what are some good options if that doesn't pan out? I want to keep it as cheap as possible and small. I haven't found any good guides to modding a digital photo frame or portable dvd player or any other screens (I've got two broken TI-83s with good screens and I'd love to do something with them), but I'm probably just not looking in the right places. Any suggestions?
