There is RapidApp, http://www.rapidapp.info/ . It is perl based, but builds nice database frontends. Watch the vids, some pretty good examples there.
So... what are we going to do today?
I would use it with chromecast... so it'd be wireless. Add in a bluetooth keyboard and you are good to go.
Wind chill does not affect inanimate objects. Yes they might cool down to the ambient temperature faster but they will never go lower than the ambient temperature regardless of the wind speed. Wind chill is what it "feels" like and last I check solar collectors don't feel.
Sometimes people don't think too far past the end of their noses. I mean they don't pronounce bowling like howling in the U.S. so it shouldn't be much of a stretch to pronounce Rowling like bowling instead of howling. sheesh.
After all they were in on the original one.
Instead of continuously screwing around trying to fight a losing battle against nature,simple move to where there is less chance of nature causing disruption.
If it floods there....move
If there's a lot of wildfires...move
If there are landslides...move.
I think it would be much cheaper to just move and then use the money that would have gone for fighting nature with the "biggest and costliest project in civil engineering" for humanitarian purposes, like say, feeding and housing the poor.
Nothing motivates a man more than to see his boss put in an honest day's work.
